England v India fifth Test called off after Covid case – live reaction

The fifth Test at Old Trafford has been called off because of the Covid outbreak in the Indian camp. At first, the ECB’s official statement said India had forfeited the game, which would mean a 2-2 series draw, but the word ‘forfeit’ has since been removed. We all feared the Manchester weather would disrupt the game; turns out the forecast is for a shitstorm to start blowing over Old Trafford any minute now.

We’ll keep you updated as the story develops. For now, all we know is that the game is off, and that the series scoreline is either England 2-2 India or England 1-2 India.
