India will play England in their fifth and final Test match at Emirates Old Trafford in Manchester beginning September 10. A historic win at the Oval, London, gave India a 2-1 lead in the series, and a win at Manchester could wrap up the series.
In London, the visitors beat Joe Root’s side by 157 runs, becoming the first team to win at the Oval after 50 years. Rohit Sharma was adjudged the man of the match after scoring a brilliant hundred in the second innings, while Shardul Thakur scored fifty runs in both innings and took three wickets in total.
India last won the red ball series in England in 2007 under Rahul Dravid’s captaincy. Could the Virat Kohli-led side win the Test series in England after 14 years? England, on the other hand, would like to even up the series. Their play at Lord’s was clinical, and they are hoping to do the same in Manchester.
The match will begin at 3:30 PM IST and will be broadcast on the SonyLiv app in India.
