International cricket, which has been shut down due to the global epidemic Corona virus, is set to return to the new club in Southampton, England after a long gap of 117 days when the England and West Indies teams face each other in the Test before 8 July.



The first Test of the three-Test series will be played in an empty stadium without spectators. This match between the fourth and eighth rankings teams in Test cricket is expected to return to cricket, which has been closed since mid-March due to Corona virus.

The last international match was a one-day match between Australia and New Zealand on 13 March which was played without an audience in Sydney. The Test series between England and the West Indies will also be played without an audience and some new rules brought in due to Corona virus will apply.

Players from England and West Indies have passed the 14-day quarantine and have also played practice matches between their teams. Cricket will start in a completely different style from the Southampton Test.
