The Indian Men’s cricket team is looking to settle some work they have pending, as they travel to England to face the Three Lions in what is now touted to be “The Ultimate Test” by cricket fans. As cricket fans from around the country will be looking forward to watching the game, it will also be available on OTT.
India and England faced each other last year in a five match test series, which the Indian team was leading by 2-1 as they went into the final game. But the fifth test, which was supposed to happen in Manchester, was called off following the COVID-19 scares in the Indian camp. Now after 297 days, both India and England will face off once again, with the Indians looking to win a storied series, while England looks to pull off a series draw.
While the two teams also face off in three T20s and three ODIs, a lot of attention will be drawn towards the test match, which is set to take place at Edgbaston. Both the teams will look to deploy their best teams for the rescheduled test game, which will start on July 1.
With Rohit Sharma as captain and KL Rahul as vice captain, the BCCI has already announced the Indian squad for the five day decider. Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, Hanuma Vihari, Cheteshwar Pujara, Rishabh Pant (wk), KS Bharat (wk), R Jadeja, R Ashwin, Shardul Thakur, Mohd Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohd Siraj, Umesh Yadav and Prasidh Krishna make up the squad.
The fifth test, which will take place on July 1 at 3:30 PM IST, will be available to stream on SonyLIV.
