Several Indian players played for Leicestershire, while others, such as Cheteshwar Pujara and Shubman Gill, batted for both sides.

The Indian team’s highlights from the tour game included half-centuries from Virat Kohli, Rishabh Pant, Gill, and Ravindra Jadeja.

They were dealt a blow, however, when captain Rohit Sharma tested positive for COVID-19 on the penultimate day of the match.

He is in isolation and is questionable for the Test against England.

KL Rahul, who suffered an injury during India’s T20I series against South Africa earlier this month, is also a doubt for the match, potentially leaving India without their first choice opening pair.

When India took a 2-1 lead in the series last year, Rohit and Rahul were both crucial for the team. While Rohit Sharma hit a century at the Oval, Rahul had his name inscribed on the Lord’s honours board with his own fantastic ton.

Last year, the fifth Test was postponed due to a COVID-19 outbreak in the Indian camp.

The game will now take place at Edgbaston from July 1 to 5.
