The fifth Test match between India and England, scheduled to begin today, has been cancelled, the England and Wales Cricket Board announced on Friday. There was uncertainty regarding the fifth and final Test match after another member of Team India's support staff tested positive for Covid on Thursday. But all Indian players had returned negative RT-PCR results on Thursday and it was expected that the match will be held as per the schedule but it wasn't to be. The ECB informed that India were "unable to field a team" due to Covid cases in the visiting team's camp.
