The BCCI believes that the fifth Test in Manchester could not be played under the rules of Kovid-19. At the same time, the ECB does not agree with this. ECB chief Tom Harrison said, “This is not a match canceled due to Kovid. The match was canceled due to concerns about one team’s mental health. There is a difference between the two things. We have asked the ICC whether this series should be considered to end here. Has the fifth man been canceled? Giving India a workover in this match, can England be declared won in the fifth match?
