London: A crest-fallen Indian team returned to a relatively calmer London for the fourth and last cricket Test, starting Thursday, with high hopes against the just crowned World No.1 England as they enjoy an unbeaten record at The Oval. (Pics: Why India can do well at the Oval)
After humiliating defeats in the first three Tests - and in the process surrendering their No.1 status, the Indians can only look to a happy ending to the series. They can take heart from the fact that they have not lost a Test here in their last six visits.
It has been a tough series for India, who were never allowed to play to their potential by an aggressive England team. Barring former captain, Rahul Dravid, none in the famed Indian batting line-up could get a hundred and the team could not even cross the 300-run mark in any of the six innings.
