WEST INDIES – Switching this summer’s Test series from England to the Caribbean is “an unrealistic option”, says Cricket West Indies chief Johnny Grave.
The three-Test series, set to start at The Oval on 4 June, is in doubt because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Grave is reported as saying a switch was a possibility but he told BBC Sport: “I have not had any discussions with England over whether we can host.
“It would be strange that England can’t have cricket but the Caribbean can.”
He added: “Realistically, without knowing anything about pandemics, if England can’t hold cricket then it almost certainly means the rest of the world can’t hold cricket either. I think it is an unrealistic option.”
Grave did say the West Indies are being as “flexible as possible” to get the series played.
