Cricket fans will be pleased to learn that Team India and England have agreed to play one Test match. It is going to take place in England in the summer of 2022. According to reports, the England Cricket Board (ECB) and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BBCI) have finalised their intentions.
This significant development follows the cancellation of the fifth India-England Test. It was cancelled earlier this month owing to a coronavirus epidemic in the Team India camp.
According to ESPNCricinfo, there is still no word on the rumour going around. Whether the encounter will be a stand-alone event or part of a series that began in August of this year. However, sources imply that the match will save the ECB from incurring the majority of the financial losses. Losses have resulted from the game’s cancellation.
Earlier conversations on the subject have mentioned the idea of a Test being replaced with two T20Is.
For the uninitiated, both teams played top-notch cricket in the first four Tests of the series. Rain halted play at Trent Bridge in Nottingham. Rain denied Team India a meaningful chance to win the Test. Following that, Virat Kohli and Co. won the second Test at Lord’s. They took all ten England wickets on the last day, making it a memorable victory. They grabbed a 1-0 lead after winning the game by 151 runs.
In the third game, England responded quickly by beating India by an innings and 76 runs at Headingley to square the series. After winning the fourth Test by 157 runs at The Oval, Team India reclaimed the lead and took command of the series with a 2-1 advantage.
