Southampton [UK], July 8 (ANI): After a hiatus of 116 days, rain further delayed the start of international cricket and now an early lunch (5 pm IST) will be taken in the first Test between England and West Indies here at the Ageas Bowl.
Since March, no international cricket has been played due to the coronavirus pandemic. Because of this virus, whole sporting action across the world came to a grinding halt.
The three-match Test series between England and West Indies will be played behind closed doors and the matches will be played in Southampton and Manchester.
This will be the first time in the 143-year long history of Test cricket that the matches will be played without no crowds.
The England-Windies Test series will be held at Hampshire's Ageas Bowl and Lancashire's Emirates Old Trafford, which have been chosen as bio-secure venues.(ANI)
