India v England canceled Manchester's fifth test, postponed to July 2022 in Edgbaston

The fifth test match between India and England in Manchester, which has been postponed indefinitely, is now set to take place in July 2022, the England and Wales Cricket Council (ECB) announced on Friday. The fifth test game was canceled just a few hours before the scheduled start due to Covid 19 problems in the Indian camp.
“The fifth match between England Men and India Men has been rescheduled and will now take place in July 2022,” said ECB.

The game, which was due to take place at Old Trafford in Manchester last month, has been canceled as India has been unable to field a team for fear of a further spike in Covid-19 cases at the camp.

The game will now be played in Edgbaston, Birmingham instead of his hometown of Manchester. “With India leading the series 2-1, the concluding fifth match will now take place from July 1, 2022, at Edgbaston, following an agreement between the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI),” ECB added.

Old Trafford can no longer host the game as events are already taking place on the site.
Due to the postponement of the event, the schedule for Ballon Blanc matches between the teams has been moved from early July to the end of this month.
The T20I Series kicks off on July 7 in the Ageas Bowl, with Edgbaston and Trent Bridge hosting the Series 2 and 3 games on July 9 and 10.

The ODI series debuts on July 12 in the Kia Oval. Lord's will host the second game of the series on July 14 and the series will end at Emirates Old Trafford on Sunday, July 17.

“I am delighted that the England-India Test series will now have its rightful conclusion. The four Test matches were riveting, and we needed a fitting finale.

“The BCCI recognises and respects the traditional form of the game and is also mindful of its role and obligations towards fellow Board Members. In the last two months, both BCCI and the ECB have been engaged in discussions and our efforts were aimed at finding a suitable window. I thank the ECB for their understanding and patience in finding an amicable solution," said BCCI secretary Jai Shah.

“We are very pleased that we have reached an agreement with BCCI to creating a fitting end to what has been a brilliant series so far," said Tom Harrison, chief executive of the England and Wales Cricket Board.

“We recognize that accommodating this extra match means a tighter schedule for the white-ball series," Harrison added. 

"We will continue to manage our players’ welfare and workloads through next year.”
