Live Score 5th Test Day 1 India Vs. England today’s match result, highlights and scoreboard: Anderson into the attack for his latest over. The partnership between Jadeja and Pant is vital for India and has now crossed the 30-year mark. Jadeja starts it off again by cracking a boundary, nailing a drive over long-on. We don’t see it often, but it’s an expensive nine-run inning from Anderson.
Preview: India will take on England in the rescheduled fifth Test starting at Birmingham’s Edgbaston on Friday (July 1). The fifth Test is part of the England-India Test series in England last year, which was played from August to September. India, then led by Virat Kohli, currently leads the series 2-1 after four Tests. The fifth Test was scheduled to start on 10 September 2021 but was later postponed to July this year after cases of COVID-19 rocked the Indian camp then.
A lot has changed for both teams since then. Rohit Sharma took over the captaincy of all formats from Virat Kohli and Ravi Shastri handed over the coaching duties to Rahul Dravid. Ben Stokes is the new England captain while Brendon McCullum is the head coach of the hosts.
However, last week, Rohit tested positive for COVID-19 after a rapid antigen test, but Rahul Dravid said on Wednesday that Rohit has not been completely ruled out of the test.
“So the current information about Rohit is that he is being monitored by our medical team, he has not been ruled out yet. Obviously, he needs to get a negative test to be available. We will continue to monitor him, we still have almost 36 hours to go so he will have a test later tonight and possibly one tomorrow morning. We’ll see, it’s really up to the medical team and the sports science team to decide. We will continue to monitor,” Dravid said while interacting with the media.
There were even reports of Jasprit Bumrah captaining the side in Rohit’s absence, but Dravid said it was for official sources to decide.
Should Bumrah get to lead the team at Edgbaston, he will become the first fast bowler since Kapil Dev to lead a Team India Test team.
