Some key West Indian players, Darren Bravo, talented Shimron Hetmyer & Keemo Paul have decided to skip the tour & allow new guns, fast bowler, Chemar Holder & compact batsman Nkrumah Bonner an opportunity to be on the tour.
Chemar Holder, the pacer has been the leading wicket taker in the West Indies cricket domestic season. 31 years old Nkrumah Bonner is someone, who can carry the bat through the innings with his stubborn stay at the crease. Raymond Reifer keeps his place. Shannon Gabriel, who has not been in active cricket for more than 6 months now finds himself in the reserves.
Cricket for a fact, will be way different with no public in the stadium due to the grave situation, No saliva can be used on the ball to enable the swing. All players on the field will be wearing masks and gloves. No high fives will be seen from the players due to social distancing.Spinners might be the ones to get the excitement going in this scenario.
One silver lining, though is the traditonal English Test match special will be broadcasting the cricket commentary on BBC tv after a gap of 20 years.
