New Delhi: The last match of the five-Test series between India and England was canceled due to Corona virus. In fact, the head coach of the Indian team, Ravi Shastri and some staff members came under the grip of Corona, after which this decision was taken. Many English giants are criticizing the Indian team and BCCI on this matter.
This Englishman spews poison for IPL
Former England fast bowler Steve Harmison fears that the canceled fifth Test between India and England could be the beginning of the end of Test cricket. He also believes that the second leg of the IPL to be held in the UAE played a role in the cancellation of the match. A few hours before the start of the fifth Test match between India and England, the Indian team was canceled due to Corona concerns.
All this happened because of IPL
Harmison said, ‘It’s bullshit, it really is. My initial thoughts are that this is the beginning of the end of Test cricket. When you choose to go down this path, that’s it. To be fair, before we start criticizing, England did this to South Africa. We are not a completely innocent side in this because we came home when we didn’t know what was going on. But all this happened because of IPL.
‘I feel sorry for the players of England’
Harmison said, ‘IPL is to start in five days and before the tour starts, India had asked about whether the last Test could be carried forward so that they can go to the IPL. I am not feeling well and I am sad for the people of Manchester. Harmison said, ‘I feel sorry for England players, supporters and Test cricket because for me this is where it starts, if we start canceling games.’
