The fifth test between India and England has been canceled due to COVID-19 concerns, India was leading the series by 2-1 from the test matches played so far. Earlier head coach Ravi Shastri tested positive then Indian support staff also tested positive consequently the final test match between the two nations has been canceled.
Reacting to that cricket fans giving a different opinion on this matter, but former Pakistan captain, Inzamam Ul Haq supported the Indian team’s decision has supported Indian team’s decision after support staff tested positive there will be a high chance that Indian team players came close contact to the support staff, so Inzamam ul Haq deems that decision to cancel the test match is the right thing to do.
“It is unfortunate that the fifth Test between India and England couldn’t go ahead due to Covid. It was a great series but to be fair to India, they were playing the fourth Test as well without their coach and support staff. But they showed great determination on the field,” said Inzamam while speaking on his YouTube Channel.
Later he explained the importance of support staff during the match if the players are getting injured. Physios are the ones to make players stay fit during the game if they got injured during the game.
Further, he said”It is very difficult to play without the support staff. When you are injured or are facing a niggle, you need a trainer or physio to help you recover and make you match-fit. People must be wondering why India pulled out despite all their players being fit. The physios and trainers are very important. After a day’s play in a Test match ends, the physio’s job begins. He needs to treat the players and keep them in shape for the upcoming day’s play. So, it would be wrong to say that India pulled out despite their players having tested negative”.
