WEST INDIES tour to England is not currently under threat in the wake of the global coronavirus threat.
Cricket West Indies (CWI) says it will continue to liaise with its counterparts, the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB), over the upcoming Test tour as the coronavirus pandemic continues to disrupt the United Kingdom’s sporting calendar.
West Indies are scheduled to tour England for Tests at the Oval and Lord’s in London and Edgbaston in Birmingham, all three fixtures scheduled during the month of June when the UK Government expects the coronavirus outbreak to be at its peak.
The virus, known as COVID-19, has resulted in thousands of UK infections and over 50 deaths, and has already forced the suspension of major fixtures like the English Premier League, Grand National and the London Marathon.
Recently the ECB last week recalled its side from the tour of Sri Lanka where they were scheduled to play two Tests later this month.
