Jasprit Bumrah is set to lead the Indian team for the fifth Test against England after Rohit Sharma was ruled out of the fixture after testing positive for COVID-19.

Sources in the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) have indicated that with Rohit yet to recover, the team management plans to go ahead with Bumrah as the captain at Edgbaston. Since 1987, no fast bowler - Kapil Dev was the last - has led India in Tests.
