New Delhi. It happened just as I feared. The fifth Test between India and England starting from Friday in Manchester (India vs England Manchester Test Canceled) was cancelled. Actually, a day earlier, the corona report of Team India’s assistant physio Yogesh Parmar (Yogesh Parmar Covid-19 Positive) came positive. After this, Team India had canceled its practice session on Thursday and since then there was a cloud of crisis over the conduct of the Manchester Test. Several rounds of talks were also held between BCCI and ECB regarding the match. But she remained inconclusive, after which it was decided to cancel the match on Friday.
The English media is furious over the cancellation of the Manchester Test. He has blamed Team India’s head coach Ravi Shastri for this. Because Corona’s entry in Team India happened only through Shastri. First came the news of him being corona positive and after that 4 more members of the support staff got corona infected one by one. In fact, the English media is upset that Indian coach Ravi Shastri and captain Virat Kohli took part in a book launch event last week. Apart from these two, many players of the team and members of the support staff also participated in it.
There were also reports about this book launch event that except the hotel staff, most of the people involved were not even wearing masks and all the coaches had gone to meet Shastri. Shastri was found corona positive only 4 days after participating in this program. Due to his contact, bowling coach Bharat Arun, fielding coach R. Sridhar (R Sridhar) and physio Nitin Patel also came under the grip of the virus. After this everyone was quarantined in the hotel itself and all of them were not even present in the stadium on the last day of the Oval Test.
Shastri’s mistake weighed heavily on Team India
The case of 4 members of the support staff, including the coach of Team India, was not even cold yet that a day before the Manchester Test i.e. on Thursday, the team’s assistant physio Yogesh Parmar was also reported to be infected. After this, many players who came in contact with him refused to enter the Manchester Test. Since then, there was speculation about the cancellation of the Manchester Test, which was stamped this morning.
English media criticized Team India and Shastri
On this, the British newspaper Daily Mail wrote that thankfully, the nightmare was somehow averted on Thursday, when the corona report of all the players of Team India came negative. But it was only an immediate relief. This is clearly the irresponsible behavior of the coach and players of Team India. He went out of Bio-Bubble to attend a book launch event at a London hotel two days before the fourth Test starting at The Oval and the result is in front of everyone. He did not even take any approval from the ECB for this.
