New Delhi. The fifth and last match of the Test series (IND vs ENG Test Series) between India and England that ended last month in Manchester had to be canceled due to Corona. India was already 2-1 in the series. After the cancellation of this match, there was a long debate about the final result of the series. England issued a statement claiming that if the Indian team withdrew from playing the Test, the winner of this match would be the host team. England withdrew their claim on the rise.After this it was decided that the final decision would be taken by the ICC, BCCI and ECB together.
Now whatever decision will be taken by the cricket boards and ICC of both the countries. But Indian cricket team opener Rohit Sharma has made it clear that the winner of the 5-Test series is Team India.
Rohit said in a virtual press conference of a sports wear brand that I believe that the Indian team is the real winner of this test series. However, the final result has not come yet. It will be decided by BCCI, ICC and ECB. But in my view, we have won the series. I still don’t know what will happen to the final test. Will we play only one Test or will the series be decided on the basis of 4 Tests only? Nothing is clear on this yet. But I think Team India has won this series.
Manchester Test was canceled due to Corona crisis
Let us tell you that after Indian coach Ravi Shastri and three other members of the support staff got corona infected, Team India refused to play the last Test against England to be held in Manchester. For this reason the match had to be cancelled.
Rohit had scored 1 century and 2 half-centuries on the tour of England.
Rohit batted brilliantly on the England tour. He scored 368 runs in 4 Tests at an average of over 52. He also scored 1 century and two half-centuries on this tour. Rohit scored a century in the fourth test. This was his first century in England. England captain Joe Root scored more runs than him. Root had scored 564 runs in 4 Tests.
‘My best in Tests is yet to come’
34-year-old Rohit said that the tour of England was very good for me. I wouldn’t call it the best. Because my best is yet to come in Test cricket. But I am happy with the way I batted on this tour. I would like to maintain this form even further and try to make my Test career more successful.
