Joe Root captain of England Cricket team is a suspicious starter for the primary Test against the West Indies one month from now as he will be required to experience seven days of self-isolation after attending the birth of his second child.
The primary round of the three-Test series starts at the Aegeas Bowl from 8 July and Root’s wife is expected around a similar time, The Telegraph revealed.
According to the rules from England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB), Root should self-isolate for seven days before rejoining the national team. In any case, ECB is continually surveying its rules and the self-isolation rule might be loose by one month from now.
The Test series, to be played in a bio-secure condition to counter the COVID-19 danger, is dependent upon the last final approval of the UK government. The challenge will also mark the arrival of global cricket which was suspended in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak.
The first Test will be held from 8-12 July while the remaining two at Old Trafford (16-20 July and 24-28 July).
The West Indies team will show up in the UK on 9 June and will head out to Old Trafford for training and quarantining. The setting will be their base for three weeks before they move to the Ageas Bowl for the beginning of the primary Test.
