Day 5 of the 5th rescheduled Test between England and India will begin from 3 pm IST. So far, the Test has been a gruelling encounter and the final day will decide who will clinch the match and the series. Team India is playing the final Test of the 5-match series which began last year but only 4 games could be played due to COVID complications in the Indian camp.

Before the game began, the visitors led 2-1 in the 4-match series as they had won the 2nd and 4th Test of the series. England had won only the 3rd Test while the 1st Test of the series ended in a draw. Currently, England are in a commanding position as they have managed to score 259 runs while chasing a target of 378 runs and have 7 wickets in hand.

Joe Root And Jonny Bairstow Put England In The Driver’s Seat

England will have to chase a mammoth target of 378 runs, a feat that has never been achieved before at the Edgbaston Cricket Ground. Knowing the enormity of the total, the English openers, Zak Crawley and Alex Lees provided the hosts with a brilliant start as they contributed more than 100 runs for the opening wicket partnership.

However, India bounced back after Tea and claimed 2 wickets in quick time to push the Englishmen on the backfoot. But the former English skipper Joe Root and the flag-bearer of BazBall, Jonny Bairstow counter attacked the Indian bowlers as they cruised towards the target. Both of them are not out and have put England in a commanding position.

To win the game from here, team India will have to pick up the remaining 7 wickets in no time whereas the Englishmen will look to get to the total as quickly as possible. Looking at the conditions and the performance of the side, England looks like hot favourites to win the game and level the series.
