Cricket News: If recent rumours from England are correct, Lancashire could face a major schedule clash in the coming season. This is because, while the fifth Test match of India’s tour of England was cancelled earlier this year due to COVID-19 and was rescheduled for 2022, the Old Trafford in Manchester has yet to be finalised as the venue.
According to reports, the rescheduled Test match will coincide with the Three Lions’ limited-overs series against South Africa. Manchester, interestingly, is already one of the locations for that task.
According to the Daily Mail, Lancashire has been unable to commit Old Trafford as a venue for the rescheduled encounter, which is planned to be played in 2022, because the visiting Indian team pulled out on the morning of the Test match. Lancashire has failed to confirm Old Trafford as the venue for the match, despite having a very limited time frame.
While England and South Africa will play an ODI at this site on July 24, the stadium will also host a few musical events. It is worth noting that the cancellation of the previous Test cost Lancashire more than £1 million in hospitality.
In my opinion, we won the England series by a score of 2-1: Mr Rohit Sharma
As far as India opener Rohit Sharma is concerned, he believes that India has already won the series and that the rescheduled Test, if it occurs, will be treated as a new match.
“I’m not sure what’s going on with the last Test match. Whether we play a one-off Test (next year), we have won the series 2-1 in my opinion “According to a PTI report, he remarked this at an event.
The Hitman, who was India’s leading run-scorer in the four-Test matches and ended his wait for an overseas Test century on this tour, noted that while his runs in English conditions were good, this was not his best Test effort.
“It’s not my strongest series. My best is still to come, I believe. I used the period before the World Test Championship final in Southampton to find out what kind of technique and mindset was needed. I was pleased and would like to pursue it further “He continued.
