England cricket team chief Ashley Giles feared a delay in the proposed home series against the West Indies in June, saying the three-match series would depend on the condition of the corona virus infection. The four-day county championship in England was scheduled to begin on Sunday, but any cricket competition here has been postponed until 28 May.
The postponement of the Kovid-19 epidemic is expected to proceed. England have to take part in a three-match Test series against the West Indies starting on June 4, with the first match to be played at the Oval.

England team director Giles told reporters in a conference call on Thursday, “We still have a deadline of May 28, but I think there is little chance that we can play any cricket in June.”
He said, ‘We have to think about the options’. After the West Indies, England will also have to play against Pakistan, Australia and Ireland on their home soil. “We are looking at a situation where we can move forward without losing a match,” Giles said.
