West Indies Arrive in England Ahead of Historic Test Series


West Indies squad arrived in Manchester on Tuesday, June 9, 2020, ahead of a historic three-Test tour of England behind closed doors.

Every member of the 39-strong touring party, including 25 players, tested negative for the coronavirus before taking a charter flight from Antigua to Manchester.

They were each due to be tested again at their new base at Old Trafford, where they will live and train in a “bio-secure” environment for most of their seven-week stay.

They are the first international sports team to arrive in the UK since the COVID-19 lockdown started in March 2020.

The three-Test series, originally due to begin on 4 June, starts on 8 July at bio-secure venues without spectators.

The second and third matches will take place at Old Trafford. Both venues have hotels on-site.

West Indies squad: Jason Holder (captain), Jermaine Blackwood, Nkrumah Bonner, Kraigg Brathwaite, Shamarh Brooks, John Campbell, Roston Chase, Rahkeem Cornwall, Shane Dowrich, Chemar Holder, Shai Hope, Alzarri Joseph, Raymon Reifer, Kemar Roach.
