India vs England Test series has come to a halt due to COVID-19. As per the sources, team England thought that India has backed out of playing the last match which made them think that England had won the match and the series would be believed to end in a tie. But England had won the previous match so England would be considered the winning team. BCCI says that this is not true.
A source from BCCI has stated that India has not lost the series. Team India would continue its lead by 2-1. The last match would be played later between the two teams when the conditions would be normal. England and Wales Cricket Board also released a statement regarding the same. According to that statement, ECB and BCCI are in a conversation regarding the last test and after that, the boards can confirm whether that last match has been canceled or not.
Ravi Shastri, the head coach, and bowling coach Bharat Arun had already been found COVID positive, and after that Yogesh Parmar also tested positive which has increased the threat of infection for the players. ECB said that the increasing cases of COVID-19 do not allow them to make their players appear for the last Test. According to BCCI, no player has been found infected with COVID-19 but this risk can not be taken otherwise the players would have to stay quarantined for the next ten days.
India has a lead in the series right now after winning the Oval Test but if the match is rescheduled, who knows how the series would turn out.
