With the Test series between England the West Indies, international cricket is expected to restart after a significant break of nearly four months. The first test is scheduled to play at Southampton’s The Rose Bowl, even as the hosts are lacking their usual skipper Joe Root. Ben Stokes will lead in his absence as the squad has strengthened the visitors with the inclusion of Shannon Gabriel.
The first two days of the match may be experiencing rains while the weather is good on the rest of the days.
Wait for a pitch to support the pacers in the game. The spinners that late on the fourth day join the game. The wise choice should be to win the toss and bat at first.
