The India cricket captain M S Dhoni has warned against panic measures as his team aims to salvage some pride against England, in the fourth and final cricket test starting at the Oval in London tonight.

England, have an unbeatable 3-nil lead in the series having dethroned India as the world's number one Test side with an innings and 242 run win at Edgbaston last week.

There are suggestions now is the time for rebuilding to start, with the tourists having failed to reach a total of 300 in the series so far despite boasting a batting line up which includes batting maestros Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid and VVS Laxman, and Virender Sehwag.

But Dhoni says his side there's no need to push the panic button just yet.
