The controversy seems to be cooling down as the 5th Test between India and England in Manchester is canceled. The Indian Cricket Control Board has said that the match had to be called off due to the covid case coming to light. On the other hand, India is being blamed and criticized by the media and its former players for not playing matches in England. Now the new name in this matter has been added to former England captain David Gower. Gower attacked Virat Kohli saying the Indian captain had sent an email to BCCI at midnight before Manchester.
Indian players refused to play: Not only that, Team India had decided not to take the field in the 5th Test, which forced the cancellation of the 5th and final Test of the series just 2 hours before the toss. Kohli and others have been refused to play after Team India physio Yogesh Parmar was infected with corona. Parmar was the fourth support staff member to fall prey to Covid. Earlier, head coach Ravi Shastri, bowling coach Bharat Arun and fielding coach R Sridhar were hit by the virus.
Kohli sent an email in the middle of the night: David Gower told the media that sometimes the game has been called off after bowling a few balls, which has many circumstances. But the decision to cancel the match at the last minute surprised everyone. He also claimed Virat Kohli had sent an email to BCCI in the middle of the night before the test was cancelled. There is a need to speak more neatly in this case. I went to watch the first day's match to enjoy cricket, Said Gower. Talked to people about the game. But then it was considered that the situation changed.
