On a 2-1 advantage going into the fourth Test in Manchester.


The ECB wants India to forfeit the 5th Test.

But BCCI says it will proceed if players test negative.

A support staffer for the Indian team tested positive for Covid.

Even though the ECB had requested India to forfeit the fifth Test in Manchester, the BCCI insisted on playing on.

Sources told NDTV that the fifth and final Test between England and India in Manchester is likely to go ahead. The ECB had already recommended the Indian team to lose the match due to a support staff member testing positive for COVID-19. The BCCI insisted that the Test would go on if the players’ RT-PCR testing came back negative. India’s training session on the eve of the Test was canceled due to a support staff member testing positive for COVID-19.

After the fourth Test in Leeds, India’s head coach Ravi Shastri tested positive for COVID-19, putting him and three other support staff members in isolation in London.

India leads the five-match Test series 2-1 going into the final match on Friday in Manchester.

The tourists had drawn the first Test at Trent Bridge, which was interrupted by rain.

India won the second Test by 151 runs at Lord’s to lead the series 1-0.

In the third Test, England rallied and bowled India out for 78 in the first innings, winning by an innings and 76 runs.

India, led by Virat Kohli, won the fourth Test at the Oval by 157 runs, with Rohit Sharma and Shardul Thakur starring. Both hit 50 in both innings and took key wickets to help India win.
