    Hopefully the ECB has some good plans in for players safety and I would hope both boards allow players to sit out if there is reservations without repercussions.

    Whether, like the PCB, WICB is doing this to get cricket going, economic decision or a goodwill gesture, remains to be seen.

    Will be boring without fans in the stadium though.

    Won’t be a whole lot of fun to watch without fans in the stadium applauding and creating that pumping passionate environment.

    A crucial wicket falls and you will only hear half picked faint audio picked by stumps mic when players on the ground celebrate.

    A crucial boundary is hit and there will be pin drop silence in the ground while commentators try their best to put a fake passion in the voice.

    Darren Bravo, Shimron Hetmyer and Keemo Paul have declined an invitation to be part of West Indies' squad to tour England in July, with Nkrumah Bonner and Chemar Holder winning their first Test call-ups.

    Slight hiccup for WI's, still only 3 players declined, so you would have to say, still a success for WICB and ECB that majority of the top players will be touring for both sides.

    On a side note, Hetmyer will be a big miss for WI's.
