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.
