Former Indian batsman Aakash Chopra also said that he is backing England to win the Test match on the final day. 

“You can kill me for that, I am saying England to win. I feel England will win this encounter because the pitch has become slower but not deteriorated. An odd ball is staying low or climbing, it is not a variable bounce that might disturb you and it is not going to turn that much” Chopra said on his Youtube channel.
