ST JOHNS: Cricket West Indies (CWI) has announced that it has given its approval in principal for a Test series in England where the players will stay in "bio-secure environment".

The Jason Holder-led side was scheduled to visit England for three Tests in June but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the tour was pushed back. The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) is now looking to host series in July.
