The decisive fifth Test between England and India has been rearranged for next July after the original date was called off last month amid health concerns among India's players following a coronavirus outbreak in their camp. India were leading 2-1 and found themselves in pole position to win a test series in England for the first time in 14 years, and for only the fourth time in its history. The blockbuster Test will now be played from July 1-5 at Edgbaston in Birmingham instead of Old Trafford in Manchester, where the fifth test was scheduled to be played, an England statement said on Friday.
