New Delhi. The 5th Test (India vs England, 5th Test) between India and England had to be canceled 2 hours before the toss. Following the corona virus case in the Indian team, the BCCI and the ECB took this decision for the safety of other players. The news comes after the cancellation of Manchester that the series is not over yet and the rest of the Tests will be played more and only then the winner of this series will be determined. But the England Cricket Board has given a completely different statement on the matter. The ECB CEO said in a conversation with English media that the India-England Test series is over for them.
The chief executive of the England Cricket Board said: ‘If the rest of the match happens, it will not be part of the series, it will be the only match. The series is over for us and the ICC will determine its future. Let us tell you that the ECB is running as the winner of the Manchester Test. In fact, the ECB issued the first statement after the cancellation of the Manchester Test, so that it clearly declared his team the winner. However, he later removed the thing from the press release. This means that the ECB believes that the Test series has been drawn 2-2 and so it has left the final decision to the ICC, although the BCCI’s thinking is completely different.
There is going to be a clash between BCCI and ECB!
According to media reports, the BCCI may consider hosting a canceled Test match for India’s next tour of England. However, the BCCI wants to link the Test match to the series as Team India was leading the series 2-1 and had a good chance of winning. The ECB has put the ball in the ICC court and now the BCCI may respond soon. It is clear that this issue could be debated on both boards.
