England looks like the hot-bed as cricket boards are deciding their ways to resume playing after a brief period of halt due to the pandemic situation. As of now it looks like cricket will resume with the three-Test series between England and the West Indies. The series was originally slated to take place in June but as the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) had suspended competitive cricket till July 1, the series will take place in July.

Pakistan are also in readiness to send their 25-man squad to England for a ‘bio-secure’ series from end of July. The first of three-match Test series is slated to get underway from July 30 with the final match concluding on August 24 while the three-T20I series will run from August 29 to September 2.

ECB chief executive: The plan is to get some international game for the women’s team

The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) are in talks with BCCI and Cricket South Africa (CSA) for a tri-series later this year. The England cricket board chief executive Tom Harrison has brought his focus to women’s cricket after the men’s team are set to resume their season in July.

“Ultimately, we will get some international cricket, all being well. The plan is to get some international cricket for the England team later this summer. We’re talking to the BCCI and Cricket South Africa about bringing their women’s teams over to play a tri-series,” ECB chief executive Tom Harrison said in a podcast with former England captain Michael Vaughan.
