India cancels practice

India’s practice session ahead of the fifth and final test against England was canceled yesterday after a member of its support staff tested positive for COVID-19, an Indian cricket board official said. Second physio Yogesh Parmar tested positive on Wednesday and the team was awaiting the results of a fresh round of tests carried out yesterday morning, the official said requesting anonymity. India head coach Ravi Shastri tested positive during the fourth test at The Oval and has since been isolating with bowling coach Bharat Arun, fielding coach R Sridhar and physiotherapist Nitin Patel. India leads 2-1 in the 5-test series after winning the Oval test by 157 runs. The final test starts tomorrow at Old Trafford.
