Alastair Cook 12-5 to sign off with a century

Kent can keep up their strong finish

Alastair Cook adds to his tally in his final Test
1 of 1

Fifth Test
continues on Sky Sports Cricket, 11am Monday
County Championship Division One and Two matches
start 10.30am Monday

England are 4-11 to win the fifth and final Test and the series with India 4-1 after reaching 114-2 in their second innings to lead by 154 runs after day three at The Oval.

The Three Lions bowled out Virat Kohli's side for 292 after they resumed on 174-6. Ravindra Jadeja, who was left stranded on 86 not out, had been as big as 40-1 to be India's top first-innings runscorer before his recall for the injured Ravi Ashwin was confirmed.

Alastair Cook will start day four on 46 not out and is 12-5 with bet365 to convert his final Test innings into a century.

The draw is 4-1, with no rain forecast, while India are 10-1 shots.

County Championship Division One leaders Surrey are 2-5 to win a ninth straight match at bottom-of the-table Worcestershire and all but secure the title. 

However, the other three matches at the Rose Bowl, Trent Bridge and Headingley are hard to assess, so dip into Division Two for a bet and take Kent to win at Middlesex.

The Spitfires are in a three-team tussle with Warwickshire and Sussex for the two promotion spots and have won five of their last six games.

Middlesex have found some four-day form in the last month but they were outplayed for much of their win at Northants and got the rub of the green in their success over Sussex.
