So it has been unpleasant news for all the cricket fans that…the final test series between india and England has been called off…
Indian team was really into good flow after taking the lead of 2-1 in this 5 match series….
Starting with Nottingham match where india was on good note to win but rain spoiled the match and ended up in draw, then winning the Lords test with huge margin to losing at Leeds and bounce back with huge enormous win at Oval after 50 years, this is the whole journey of indian team in this tour..
Talking about the series due to covid cases hit in the indian camp, the match has been called up off. Initially Ravi shastri was infected but later on more staff members gets infected which led to abandonment of the match for safety reasons of other players..
Now BCCI and EcB are in the talks to conduct the one match afterwards as we all know india will again go for england tour in 2022.
India will be touring England for a white ball tour next year in July. A total of six matches (3 T20Is & 3 ODIs) are to played from the 1st to 14th July. It will be most likely this time of next year when the 5th IND vs ENG test would be scheduled. The Boards have already agreed on the terms to re-schedule the match in a suitable window to both the teams.
India tour of England in 2022:
First T20 – July 1
Second T20 – July 3
Third T20 – July 5
First ODI – July 9
Second ODI – July 12
Third ODI – July 14
So the communication mode BCCI and ECB has made was commendable. It is also said by ECB CEO in sky sports that whenever the test match will be conducted then it will be one off match against the Indian team that means this final test won’t be the part of this 5 match test series.
According to PTI, BCCI President Ganguly will meet ECB CEO on September 22 or 23 to discuss about the schedule of the one-off Test match between India & England.
With this cancel off match, now every eyes will be on IPL which will start in few days.
