London, July 5 (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 5th Jul, 2020 ) :It will be Test cricket but not as we've known it when England face the West Indies in the opening match of a "bio-secure" series at Southampton starting on Wednesday.
However, a number of anti-virus measures mean next week's match will look like few others in 143 years of Test-match history.
For a start, both sides will be staying at on-site hotels at Southampton's Ageas Bowl and Old Trafford in Manchester -- the venue for the second and third Tests -- in a series originally scheduled for elsewhere in England in June.
