The fifth Test match between England and India which was postponed indefinitely over Covid-19 concerns has been rescheduled to happen on July 1, 2022. The announcement was made by the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) on Friday. The match was originally meant to take place last month at Old Trafford in Manchester.

The final match of the series will now be played at Edgbaston in Birmingham as Old Trafford has already been booked for other events. "The fifth match between England Men and India Men has been rescheduled and will now take place in July 2022. With India leading the series 2-1, the concluding fifth match will now take place from July 1, 2022, at Edgbaston, following an agreement between the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI)," the ECB mentioned in its statement.

Meanwhile the T20I series between the two countries will begin on July 7 at Ageas Bowl, while the 2nd and 3rd matches will happen at Edgbaston and Trent Bridge respectively on July 9 and 10. The three matches of the ODI series will be played on July 12 at the Kia Oval, on July 14 at Lord's and on July 17 at Emirates Old Trafford. "I am delighted that the England-India Test series will now have its rightful conclusion. The four Test matches were riveting, and we needed a fitting finale," BCCI secretary Jay Shah said.
