Final England-India test off after outbreak in Indian camp

The England and Wales Cricket Board says India is “regrettably unable to field a team” due to fears of more cases inside the group. India’s entire touring party was forced to isolate in its Manchester hotel on Thursday after assistant physiotherapist Yogesh Parmar was the latest person to test positive for the virus. India coach Ravi Shastri, bowling coach Bharath Arun, fielding coach R Sridhar and main physio Nitin Patel had already tested positive. India was leading the series 2-1.
