Srinagar, July 31: Despite some sort of spike in Coronavirus cases in Britain, the English and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) has said that the first Test between Pakistan and England will go ahead as planned.

According to BBC report The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) does not expect the first Test between England and Pakistan to be affected by new coronavirus restrictions imposed in Manchester.

In light of the recent spike in virus cases, the British government has placed a ban on separate households meeting each other indoors.

As per report the new rules would not have any impact on the Test series that starts August 5, the ECB believes, thanks to the protocols in place.
