Live Score 5th Test Day 1 India vs England today match result, highlight and scoreboard: Anderson into the attack for his latest over. The partnership between Jadeja and Pant is vital for India, and it’s gone beyond 30 now. Jadeja begins this over with a cracking boundary, nailing the on-drive through long-on. We don’t see that often, but it’s an expensive over from Anderson with nine runs coming off it.
Preview: India take on hosts England in the rescheduled fifth Test, starting in Birmingham’s Edgbaston, on Friday (1 July). The fifth Test is a part of the England-India Test series in England last year that was played between August and September. India, then led by Virat Kohli, currently lead the series 2-1 after four Tests. The fifth Test was slated to begin on 10 September, 2021 but was later rescheduled to July this year after COVID-19 cases rocked the Indian camp back then.
A lot has changed for both teams since then. Rohit Sharma took over as all-format skipper from Virat Kohli, and Ravi Shastri handed over the coaching duties to Rahul Dravid. Ben Stokes is England’s new skipper while Brendon McCullum is the hosts’ head coach.
However, last week, Rohit had tested positive for COVID-19 following a Rapid Antigen Test, but Rahul Dravid on Wednesday said that Rohit was not completely ruled out of the Test.
“So the update on Rohit is that he is being monitored by our medical team, he is not yet been ruled out. Obviously, he needs to get the negative test to be available. We will keep monitoring him, we have still got close to 36 hours to go so he will have a test later tonight and one maybe tomorrow morning as well. We will see, it is really up to the medical team and sports science team to decide on that. We will keep monitoring, “Dravid said at a media interaction.
There were even reports of pacer Jasprit Bumrah captaining the side in Rohit’s absence, but Dravid said it was for official sources to decide.
Should Bumrah go onto lead the side at Edgbaston, he will become the first fast bowler since Kapil Dev to lead the Team India Test side.
