The England cricket team is one day away from a 4-nil series whitewash over India who were 129 for 3 at stumps on the fourth day of the final test at the Oval.

After dismissing the tourists for 300, India were made to follow on as they trailed England's first innings total by 291 runs.

Rahul Dravid carried his bat for 146 not out, joining Sunil Gavaskar and Virender Sehwag as the only Indians to bat through a test match innings.
