The fifth day of the first test between England and India was postponed due to rain on Trent Bridge

The start of the fifth day of the first test between England and India was delayed due to continuous rainfall in Nottingham.

The game was set to be an exciting ending. India won 52-1 overnight and needed another 157 games to win, while England needed another 9 wickets to lead 1-0 in the five-game series.

India could have been closer to victory if it hadn’t been for Chorrut’s brilliant fourth day. The England captain scored 109 points to maintain his position in the game, although once Sunday’s game started, the tourists would still have the upper hand.

Rain has always been a major feature of the entire game, and as a result, the second and third days were shortened.

However, the forecast later on Sunday is more positive and the situation is so attractive that both sides hope to have enough time for the game to achieve results.
