New Delhi. The 5th and last Test match between India and England to be played in Manchester was postponed shortly before the toss. Actually, Corona has entered the Indian camp. This step had to be taken due to the cases of corona infection coming one after the other. For this, some former veteran English players including fans are also telling the reason for IPL. At the same time, according to a report, Team India wanted to play the Manchester Test and captain Virat Kohli appealed to the England and Wales Cricket Board to postpone the match by two days after the case of Kovid.
However, the ECB rejected Kohli’s appeal and postponed the Test to be played at Old Trafford indefinitely. On Wednesday, the Kovid report of India’s second physio Yogesh Parmar came positive. Some players were also facing the crisis of Corona. According to Kohli, despite the negative report, there was a fear of infection before the match starting on September 10.
Board did not agree to Kohli’s appeal
Kohli spoke to head coach Ravi Shastri and the rest of the staff regarding the Manchester Test. The BCCI officials then requested the England Board officials to postpone the match by two days, but the English board did not agree to their appeal. The decision to postpone the match was taken about two hours before the toss.
