BIRMINGHAM, England, July 5 (Reuters) - England beat India by seven wickets in the rearranged fifth test to level the series 2-2 at Edgbaston on Tuesday.

Joe Root (142) and Jonny Bairstow (114) forged a 269-run partnership for the unbroken fourth wicket to reach the 378-run target with two sessions to spare.

The five-match series could not be completed last year following COVID-19 cases in the India camp ahead of the final match at Old Trafford.
