West Indies, England series still on the cards
Isolation units and coronavirus checkpoints at cricket grounds in England could see the West Indies still making the trip to that country for closed-door games.
The West Indies were scheduled to start a three-Test duel with England at The Oval, Edgbaston, and Lord’s on June 4 until the rapid spread of COVID-19 across Europe threatened to derail those plans.
The ECB and Cricket West Indies have been trying to come up with solutions to keep what is expected to be a lucrative series alive.
According to reports, the ECB is stepping up plans to resume cricket in June, but with no spectators, and that broadcasting would still go ahead since that was safer and that is where the majority of money to be earned from the series would be in any case.
ECB Director of Special Projects, Steve Elworthy, explained that any approach involving re-starting cricket in England would mean creating a sterile environment, safe for players and staff. (Sportsmax)
