A Test match between England and West Indies marked the resumption of international cricket.
Since March, no international cricket match took place due to the coronavirus pandemic. The virus had brought the whole sporting action across the world to a grinding halt.
It was looking as if it would take a while for sports to come back, but slowly and steadily, all different sports managed to get into gear and provided fans some respite in these tough times.
However, due to the concerns regarding the spread of COVID-19, the three-match Test series between England and West Indies is being played behind closed doors.
