Manchester: England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) is considering ‘bio-secure’ venues to host upcoming home series against West Indies and Pakistan.
Currently, Old Trafford Cricket Ground, Manchester, and Edgbaston Stadium, Birmingham are the two stadiums in England which are considered as ‘bio-secure’ venues. Top-class facilities are available in both the venues to accommodate players, officials, and broadcasters in the best possible ways.
England is scheduled to play three Tests against West Indies and as many Tests with Pakistan along with three T20Is in July. Remember, professional cricket is suspended until July 1 following prevailing Coronavirus.
According to ECB’s Chief Executive Tom Harrison, the cricket board is trying every possible effort to resume cricket activities to avoid further financial losses. He earlier revealed that ECB will bear a loss of £380m due to no professional cricket around.
