IND vs ENG 5th Test 2021: After registering an astounding win at the Oval Cricket Stadium in the IND vs ENG 4th Test 2021, team India is now heading to Manchester to play the fifth & the final test match of the series. Team India bid goodbye to London & has headed to Manchester where they will play the final match of the series.
Team India had a great time in London as they won both second & third tests held at Lord’s & the Oval stadium. India will now hope to end the five-match test series on a high note by winning the fifth test at Old Trafford in Manchester.
India’s backup wicket-keeper Wriddhiman Saha updated his fans about team India’s travel plans by sharing a picture of team India traveling to Manchester on his Instagram handle. In the snap, fans can catch a glimpse of Saha, Pujara, Mayank Agarwal, Abhimanyu Easwaran, and Girish Dongre. Saha captioned the picture, “Destination Next: Manchester”.
Even the Indian pacer Umesh Yadav who scalped six wickets at the Oval test shared a picture on his Instagram handle in which he is seen traveling to Manchester with his wife & child.
The fifth test will start on September 10, 2021. There is just three days gap between the fourth & fifth tests which means the Indian team will not get much time to gear up for the fifth test.
Recently, India’s head coach Ravi Shastri & the other two support staff members have tested positive for COVID-19 & have been quarantined for 14 days in their hotel rooms. Their absence will be a big setback for team India as their experience & feedback will be missed.
England would aim to win the IND vs ENG 5th Test 2021, at Manchester to draw the five-match test series as a defeat would mean that India will clinch the series by 3-1. Virat Kohli led team however would try to continue their winning momentum & win the test series in England after 14 long years.
