Kovid did not follow the protocol
The Sun reports, citing players from England, that Indian players are behaving carelessly despite the threat from Kovid 19. They also allege that they saw Indian players circling Manchester, where the fifth test would take place. Players also ask why the members of the Indian team were willing to tour the city instead of following Kovid’s protocol in the hotel room.
The ECB loses millions of rupees
The cancellation of the fifth test has cost the ECB and the organizers millions of rupees. The Indian team is on the verge of not being able to postpone the Test for a day or two. With the IPL scheduled to begin on September 19, players will need to arrive in the United Arab Emirates. England alleges that the IPL was one of the main reasons for postponing the Manchester test.

India says lifting work
Kovid 19 was reportedly affected by Ravi Shastri’s book release before the fourth test. None of the participants wore masks. About 150 people attended the Shastri event. Meanwhile, Indian players say the infection may have been in the Oval elevator. It is estimated that this was due to the large number of fans.

Will you withdraw from the IPL?
With the cancellation of the fifth round, India will travel to the United Arab Emirates to play in the IPL earlier than England’s scheduled. Five players from England will go to the IPL. At the same time, it’s no wonder some of them back down. England players are considering retiring as the fifth test is postponed. However, they may lose the opportunity to play in the IPL in the future if they withdraw for no particular reason.
