Here's how to get the England vs India 5th Test live stream from anywhere as the postponed match continues.

You might be confused about why England are suddenly playing a Test against India after just completing a series with New Zealand.

Well the match was rearranged from last year because the match originally scheduled in September 2021 had to be cancelled due a Covid outbreak in the India squad.

India are leading the series 2-1, so this is a chance for England to belatedly level the series.

England will be a very different proposition to the side India faced last year. As demonstrated in their 3-0 win over New Zealand, England are now adopting the same aggressive style they’ve been using in the One Day game and so far it’s working.

Ben Stokes is England’s new captain and he will be hoping England can beat an Indian side packed with amazing talent.

Stoke has promised England will go for it again, saying to the BBC (opens in new tab): "It is different opposition but I made it very clear after the New Zealand series how we're going to do things and we're going to go out there and try to operate in the same way."

He added: "I know the bigger picture of it — trying to draw a series — but every game for me, so early on in my captaincy and trying to rebuild this team, is bigger than results."

It will be interesting to see what plan the Indian bowlers come up with to try and get out Jonny Bairstow, who’s in the Test form of his life.

You probably need a reminder of what’s happened so far in the series. India won the 1st Test at Lord’s easily by 151 runs, England leveled the series in the 2nd Test. But India regained the lead at the 4th Test at The Oval.

England go into the final day amazingly as favorites to win the match. Wind back to yesterday morning and India looked firmly on course for victory. But England have continued their attacking style of cricket and it’s clearly working. It will be England’s highest ever Test chase, but a few early wickets and things could unravel quickly…
