The fifth Test between England and India, initially slated for September 2021, is ready to take place on July 1, 2022. Following an agreement between the England & Wales Cricket Board (ECB) and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), the series will resume with India ahead 2-1. The final Test match will now be played from July 1 at Edgbaston rather than Manchester.

The T20I and ODI series between England and India has also been pushed back by six days due to the rescheduling. Now the T20I series will begin on July 7 at Ageas Bowl, while the ODI series will begin on July 12 at the Oval.
