The Indian team is currently on the verge of becoming the greatest ever eternal comeback team. India won the Oval Test for the first time in 50 years after that fourth test. They were on the verge of grabbing a 2-1 lead in the five-match test series with that victory.
From beginning to end, it was a fantastic team effort. Everyone has impressed, whether it’s Rohit Sharma or Jasprit Bumrah in the lower order. India will take control of the series with one more win, while a loss will see the trophy split between the two nations.
Man of the Match was to Rohit Sharma for his brilliant maiden overseas century, which came at a crucial time for the team.
Before the start of the last test, the visitors were met with yet another unwelcome circumstance, when another member of the Indian team was found to be positive.
As previously reported, on the fifth day of the fourth test, Indian Team Head Coach Ravi Shastri tested positive for covid, putting him in isolation. 2-3 more members were also isolated with him for their own safety.
The Indian team’s instructional meeting scheduled for the day before the final Test of the five-match series at Old Trafford has been cancelled as a result of another member of the Indian medical team testing positive for Covid-19 in Manchester. The Indian squad members have been asked to return to their hotel rooms until further notice, according to ESPNcricinfo.
The most recent positive case is thought to have occurred following a new round of testing on Wednesday evening; the group had prepared on Wednesday morning as planned.
The final test will take place in Manchester on September 10th.
