The rescheduled Test match between India and England will start from July 1

Rahul Dravid, Head Coach of the Indian Cricket Team, attendedĀ a virtual news conference from Birmingham ahead of the fifth Test against England

The latest news on Rohit is that he is being watched by our medical staff. He hasn't been ruled out just yet

Obviously, he wants the negative tests to be available, so we will keep an eye on that; we still have about 36 hours to go

He'll have a test later tonight and perhaps another tomorrow morning, and then we'll see what happens

Everyone else, including Ravichandran Ashwin, who recently contracted Covid also fit for selection

In his absence, Dravid stated that India had clarity on who would open in Rohit's absence

Mayank is obviously a regular opener. We have other choices; Bharat has opened in many games for Andhra

Pujara has absolutely excellent quality, he has played for India in the past, so I don't want to give anything away

But, as I said, we are genuinely pretty clear in our thoughts about the way we are going to follow, stated Rahul Dravid
