Manchester/IBNS: The fifth Test between India and England, to be played in Manchester, has attracted uncertainty after one support staff of Virat Kohli's team tested positive for COVID-19, media reports said Thursday.

Earlier Indian coaches Ravi Shastri, Bharat Arun and R Sridhar had to isolate themselves after Shastri tested positive for coronavirus.

Following which, all members of Team India had to undergo the RT-PCR test.

In this scenario, the fifth Test, which is scheduled to begin Sept 10, has become uncertain.
