India continue their disastrous tour of England this weekend, with the fear of being white-washed in the Test series. Trailing 3-0 and having lost the toss on a placid pitch at The Oval, only rain seems to stand between India and a 4-0 thrashing.
This Test may be Rahul Dravid, Sachin Tendulkar and VVS Laxman’s last Test in England and the trio will want to exit on a high, which could spark India into posting a revival before the limited over internationals start.
