Cricket is back! England lock horns with the Windies

Jul 06, 2020 14:49 IST

India's most loved sport is on the brink of resumption and even though it won't be on Indian soil, but the fans are still eager for cricket to resume. All eyes will be towards Rose Bowl in Southampton as England take on the Windies in first of the 3 Tests from July 8. After a forced 4-month break due to the pandemic, the cricketers resumed training last month in a bio-secure environment, keeping in mind all the safety protocols laid down by the ICC. The visitors might seem like underdogs but proved that they aren't pushovers when the last time these two teams faced each other in a Test series. West Indies beat England 2-1 and are the holders of the Wisden Trophy. Though it will be tough to emulate that performance in England, the Caribbean boys can't be written-off. From reliable all-rounders to lethal fast bowlers, the two teams have a lot in common and the Test series surely promises to beat the lockdown blues.
