London [UK], October 22 (ANI): The fifth match of the Test Series between India and England's men's teams has been rescheduled and will now take place in July 2022.
The match, which was supposed to take place last month at Emirates Old Trafford, was called off when India were unable to field a team due to fears of a further increase in the number of COVID-19 cases inside the camp.
With India leading the series 2-1, the concluding fifth match will now take place from July 1, 2022, at Edgbaston, following an agreement between the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).
Last month, Indian physio Yogesh Parmar had contracted COVID-19 ahead of the fifth Test against England.
The BCCI and ECB held several rounds of discussion to find a way to play the Test match, however, the outbreak of COVID-19 in the Indian team contingent forced the decision of calling off the game. (ANI)
