Many players are not played in this series. Here are the Updates relating to West indies tour of England
- Root may miss first Test against WI. In the absence of Root, Stock will take a charge of team as a captain. The England Captain is awaiting the birth of his second child at the start of July.
- Hetmyer, Bravo, Paul pulling out of England tests. The players have decided against going to England because of the Coronavirus Pandemic Concerns.
All set for the series. I hope we will start seeing again the cricket action from July 2020. But I think this is not a good decision in this time because cases of COVID-19 are rising every day.
