India and England would be facing in the last Test match at Edgbaston from tomorrow. This is the last Test match of the series, which started last year. However, it was postponed in the wake of a COVID-19 case that broke in the Indian camp. The Indian team is leading the Test series by 2-1 currently. They would look to win the match and win their first Test series in England since 2007.

Indian players made out for a practice session in Birmingham ahead of the fifth Test match. They spent a lot of time in the nets gaining more and more perfection in their skills. Team India started with the catching practice. Fielders practised for both slip catches and high catches.

Later, the Indian batsman had a long net session. Virat Kohli was once again the focal point of the practice session. Former Indian captain spent a lot of time in the nets. Jasprit Bumrah too bowled for a long period of time in the nets. Bumrah is also expected to be the captain for the fifth Test match.

Team India head coach Rahul Dravid in the press conference called Virat Kohli as the most hardworking guy. Dravid said, “I disagree with you when you said he is on the wrong side of his 30s. He’s the most hard-working guy I have come across. The way he played in the practice match he’s ticking all the right boxes.”


“He has not been ruled out yet” – Rahul Dravid on availability of Rohit Sharma

Rohit Sharma still remains in doubt for the last Test match against England. He caught COVID-19 during the practice game against Leicestershire. Coach Dravid revealed that the Indian team management would wait till the reports on Thursday before making a final decision on captaincy.

“He’s being monitored by our medical team. He has not yet been ruled out,”Obviously, he needs to get the negative test to be available. So we will keep monitoring that, we’ve still got close to 36 hours to go. He will have a test later tonight and maybe one tomorrow morning as well. And then we’ll see,” Dravid added in pre match pree conference.
