England V/S India Test Series Itinerary Following ECB-BCCI
After ECB-BCCI Back-Channel Talks, the England V/S India Test Series is not likely to change. There were no positive results from informal discussions between the ECB and the BCCI. Therefore, the test series may also be carried out as scheduled. The Cricket Board of England and Wales rejected the request of the BCCI that a five-test series be moved. Therefore, the sequel from India to England, planned for 31 IPL Games on August 4, will start one week (ECB). Although, as confirmed by an ECB spokesman, the BCCI did not present a formal request.
It learns that the top managers of both banks held informal discussions. The ECB will have their first ‘Hundred’ from July 24 to August 21. Their broadcast deals are in place, and everything is in order. As a result, there is no chance of a shift occurring,” the source stated. The Indian team is anticipating a six-week gap between the World Test Championship final against New Zealand, which is scheduled for June 18-22 in Southampton, and the start of the England series.
The five-Test series kicks out in Nottingham (Aug 4-8), then continues to Lord’s (Aug 12-16), Leeds (Aug 25-29), the Oval (Sep 2-6), and Manchester (Sep 2-6). (Sep 10-14).
However, in the last week of July, there are shorter gaps, allowing the BCCI to complete the IPL in the United Arab States between September 15 and October 15. But Michael Atherton, former captain of England, had previously indicated that the ECB would not meet the demand of the BCCI.
During this time, there is no surety and should remain consistent with accepting the ECB for any future reform,” Atherton writes in “The Times.”
Fifth Test Series
The Fifth Test Of The India Series in Emirates Old Trafford is planned for September 10-14. Lancashire has already pre-sold three full days. Also, with a good wind between now and then, they should sell out ultimately. Moving the game from this late stage to earlier in the season would cause logistical problems for Lancashire. The ECB and the England team, not to mention the spectators who have already spent money and planned to attend,” he reasoned in his article.
The BCCI learns already begun discussions with various boards about the window between September 15 and October 15. So it is with the UAE almost zero in as a potential venue.
Indian Men’s & Women’s Squads
In preparation for their England tour, Indian Men’s & Women’s Squads has started a strict quarantine. On Tuesday, India’s Virat Kohli, Captain, Rohit Sharma’s White Ball deputy, and Ravi Shastri, head coach. They join the British squad’s bio bubble, which began its brutal eight-day quarantine alongside the women’s team here. The Indian women’s team also started their brutal eight-day quarantine at the Grand Hyatt in Mumbai near the international airport. The teams were due to go on June 2 to return three negative RT-PCR findings for all the players and non-players.
The men’s team will face New Zealand in the World Test Championship final on June 18. It follows by a whole series against England. From June 16, in one single trial, three ODIs and as many T20 Internationals, the ladies will meet the hosts. Wriddhiman and Prasidh Krishna returned to the bubble two days ago after fully recovering from COVID-19. Mumbaikars such as Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, and coach Ravi Shastri have all joined the drop,” a BCCI source confirmed. The length of quarantine once the side arrives in England is still negotiating. And the brutal quarantine (confined to hotel rooms) could reduce.
PTI already report that no changes to the five-Test schedule. It is possible after the England Cricket Board informs the BCCI during informal discussions that date changes are not possible.
