The West Indies tour of England is most likely to get underway in July after it had already been approved by the board.
Cricket West Indies held a meeting with their board of directors for the upcoming tour of the West Indies against England in July. In that said meeting, the board gave their approval after there had been detailed discussions which involved both medical and cricket-related representatives of both CWI and ECB.
According to CWI, ‘These discussions involve the local and international logistics and protocols which are already being put in place to minimize risk and optimize the health and safety of all concerned. CWI has also received and reviewed detailed plans for players and staff to be kept in a bio-secure environment for the duration of the tour, with all matches being played behind closed doors’.
CWI also stated that their next process will involve logistics to facilitate the safe movement of all their players and staff. Also, they will be transported by private charter planes as they will all undergo some medical screenings which will include individual COVID-19 testing.
The ECB, on the other hand, promises to give a gold standard bio-secure environment for their international cricket event. The West Indies tour of England is a three-match Test series which is most likely to push through on July. To learn more about Test matches, check out Betwala.
