Sourav Ganguly To Meet With ECB Representatives

Sourav Ganguly will meet with ECB representatives and the official broadcasters to try and resolve the situation as both the parties are set to lose a huge amount of money due to the cancellation of the 5th and final Test of the series between England and India.

Hours ahead of the scheduled start of Day 1 of the 5th Test, the fixture was cancelled. The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) stated that Indian players were unable to field a team amid the Covid-19 scare in the dressing room.


The BCCI, in a statement, said it will offer a rescheduling to the ECB and that the two boards will work towards finding a window for the Test match amid a busy cricket calendar.

“In lieu of the strong relationship between BCCI and ECB, the BCCI has offered to ECB a rescheduling of the canceled Test match. Both the Boards will work towards finding a window to reschedule this Test match,” the BCCI said.

India had to cancel their training session on Thursday after assistant physio Yogesh Parmar tested positive for Covid-19. India players then were forced into isolation but all of them returned negative results in the first round of RT-PCR tests for Covid-19.
Sourav Ganguly was left impressed with the way India and England are battling in the ongoing 5-match Test series. Sourav Ganguly reckoned that both teams have displayed great skill on the field and there is no substitute for a well-fought series before the Covid-19 positive case resulted in the last Test being postponed. India was leading 2-1.

Senior Members Of Indian Team Were Apprehensive After Yogesh Parmar Tested Covid-19 Positive

Even as they were waiting for the results of the second round of tests, it is understood that the senior members of the team were apprehensive about possible infections within the incubation period as some of them were deemed as close contacts to Yogesh Parmar.

Notably, Yogesh Parmar was the 4th member of the Indian support staff to test positive for Covid-19 in England. Head coach Ravi Shastri, bowling coach Bharat Arun and fielding coach R Sridhar were not part of the dressing room in the Oval Test after they tested positive for the virus ahead of the start of the 4th Test. India players took the field after two negative RT-PCR Tests in London last week.
