IND vs ENG: No Ravi Shastri, bowling & fielding coach for fifth Test at Manchester

The latest development rules out head coach Ravi Shastri’s presence in the fifth Test at Old Trafford, Manchester. Shastri and the other support staff members- bowling coach Bharat Arun and fielding coach R Sridhar are currently isolating in hotel rooms after Ravi Shastri tested positive for COVID-19 on Sunday.

Their absence will be a big blow for Team India as the coaches’ experience and feedback for the players will be missed.

England would run errands to win the final match at Manchester as a loss would mean India clinching the series 3-1. Virat Kohli led side, however, would try to continue their winning spree and win the Test series in England after 14 years. The visitors had last won the red ball series in England in 2007 under Rahul Dravid’s captaincy.
