The first Test between England and the West Indies which marks the return of international cricket after a 4-month hiatus due to Corona virus pandemic is all set to begin today.
The three-match Test series will be played in a bio-secure bubble - behind closed doors, with no crowds allowed, no age-old practice of shinning the cricket ball using saliva and other norms.
The 1st Test will be played from Jul 8-12 at Rose Bowl / Ageas Bowl Cricket Stadium in Southampton.
For the first time in its 143-year history Test cricket will have no spectators.
Let’s follow this historical beginning of a new era in Cricket and get used to the new norms post the pandemic.
