After seven members of the England team were found to be Corona positive, the Indian team’s practice match could be in danger.
New Delhi. The Indian team may be in danger of playing practice matches after seven members of the England team playing the ODI series against Pakistan were found to be Coronavirus positive. India have to play a five-match Test series with England next month, in view of which the team wants to play practice matches. The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) said on Wednesday that there is no change or update regarding India’s series after positive cases were reported in the England camp.

India had demanded a practice match before the test series
This means the ECB is continuing to consider India’s request for a warm-up match ahead of the five-Test series starting in Nottingham on August 4 next month. The Indian team had appealed for a practice match before the Test series against England. Initially, the ECB did not have any plans to organize a practice match for the Indian team due to Corona, but last week it said that it is considering India’s appeal.
Team Indian players are on break of 3 weeks
However, no decision has yet been taken on India’s appeal. It remains to be seen whether the ECB will allow any first-class cricketers to play in the bio bubble and practice matches against India. The Indian team is currently on a three-week break and will start the camp in Durham from July 15. If the ECB organizes a match for the Indian team against any county team, it will happen in the coming few days.
