Weather at Edgbaston today: The SportsRush brings you the pitch report of the England vs India 5th test in Birmingham.
Birmingham’s Edgbaston Stadium is ready to host day five of the blockbuster test between England and India. The stadium is completely sold out after the announcement of free tickets on day five of the match.
India gave England a target of 378 runs in the 4th innings, and England will need to break their chasing record in order to achieve the target. It was looking like a tough target, but the English side is in a very comfortable position to chase the record. The BazBall is working perfectly for the hosts.
Joe Root and Jonny Bairstow are currently batting for the English side, and both of them have completed their half-centuries. With just 119 runs required on the last day, this is looking like a cakewalk for the hosts. Apart from a miracle, only weather can save the match for the Indian team.
