International cricket will return in July amid a dangerous epidemic like Coronavirus and its dates have also been announced. After this pandemic, the first international series of three Test matches are to be held between England and West Indies, the series will start from July 8 and the first match will be played at Agel Ball.
But England captain Joe Root has revealed that he will probably not play the first match starting July 8 and he could be replaced by star all-rounder Ben Stokes. Actually, Root’s wife is Carrie pregnant and in early July, Root can become a father for the second time and wants to be with his wife. Even if they are not allowed to come on the ground for a few days. However, the match organizers are still deciding whether anyone can return, except for the ‘Bio Secure’ bubble created on the field.
Ben Stock can become captain
If Root does not take part in the first test, he will be replaced by Ben Stocks, who is currently the vice-captain of the England Test team. However, many believe that he will never be able to represent his country after joining Road Fight in Bristol in 2017. Routes, who started outdoor training two days in advance, believe that if stock captains are made then it would be fantastic.

The test series between England and West Indies (England vs West Indies Test Series Schedule) will begin on July 8 at Agel Ball in Southampton. The second and third Tests will be played at Manchester’s Old Trafford ground. The second test will be held on 16 July and the third test on 24 July.
