PORT OF SPAIN – Cricket West Indies president Ricky Skerritt has ruled out sending a second-string team to England, if the leading Test players are hesitant to tour because of COVID-19 fears.
But with discussions over how and when the rescheduled series can be staged still “taking place on both sides of the Atlantic”, Skerritt said speculation over player availability was misplaced.
West Indies were scheduled to tour England for three Tests next month but the outbreak of the deadly COVID-19 pandemic forced a postponement.
The England and Wales Cricket Board said it hoped to press ahead with the tour between July and September, and recent media reports have touted July as the date identified by administrators to host the series.(CMC)
