The West Indies tour of England is just a week away and cricket fans all across the globe are waiting with baited breaths to watch it go down. The three-match red-ball series also marks the revival of international cricket after the coronavirus hiatus.
It starts off a busy period for England -the Lions play three Tests against the West Indies in July, and then three against Pakistan straight after that.
The first Test of the three-match series between England and West Indies will take place at Hampshire’s Rose Bowl, popularly known as the Ageas Bowl ground. The venue was selected in tandem to a bio-secure environment due to obvious concerns for coronavirus. The arena has a hotel on-site, implying that the fixture will be taking place in a safe environment maintaining all the norms.
