England, India agree series decider at Edgbaston after fifth test postponed – .

The fifth postponed test between England and India will be held in Edgbaston from July 1-5 next summer, instead of its home location at Emirates Old Trafford, and will also determine the outcome of the series, the India currently leading the series 2-1. , following their victories at Lord’s and The Kia Oval.
In order to fulfill the appointment and thus meet the terms of the ECB’s broadcast deal with Sky, a complete rearrangement of England’s summer program was agreed.

With Foo Fighters and Red Hot Chilli Peppers set to host concerts at Old Trafford during the India test window, the venue will instead host the second test against South Africa, starting August 25, which was originally awarded to Edgbaston.

In addition, the series of white balls between England and India will now begin six days later than initially planned, with Edgbaston now scheduled to host a T20I on July 9, instead of the ODI which was originally scheduled for that date. .

Tom Harrison, Managing Director of the ECB, said: “We are very happy to have reached an agreement with the BCCI to bring an appropriate end to what has been a brilliant series so far.

“I am very grateful to all the venues involved for their cooperation in allowing us to reschedule this game. I also want to thank Cricket South Africa for their support and understanding to make these changes possible.

“We would like to apologize once again to the fans for the disruption and disappointment of the events of September. We know it was a day that so many people had planned well in advance.

“We recognize that hosting this extra game means a tighter schedule for the White Ball series. We will continue to manage the well-being and workload of our players throughout the next year while continuing to seek the optimal schedule for fans, players and our partners across the Game. ”

Jay Shah, BCCI Secretary, added: “I am delighted that the England-India test series has now come to its rightful conclusion. The four test matches were exciting and we needed a suitable final.

“BCCI recognizes and respects the traditional form of gambling and is also aware of its role and obligations towards other members of the board of directors. Over the past two months, the BCCI and the ECB have been engaged in discussions and our efforts have been aimed at finding an appropriate window. I thank the ECB for its understanding and patience in finding an amicable solution.
