"This is very welcome news for all cricket supporters, and specifically for those with tickets to come to Lord's on July 10," quoted Guy Lavender, MCC Chief Executive & Secretary as saying.

"Our teams are working incredibly hard to ensure a safe and enjoyable environment and we look forward to welcoming as many people as possible to Lord's for this fixture", he added.
