Cricket West Indies (CWI) on the advice and agreement with the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB), announces the postponement of the West Indies Men’s three (3) Test series against England in June, to a future date to be determined.

The decision to postpone the tour came as a result of the uncertainty for the safe resumption of cricket in the United Kingdom, as well as international air travel. As a result, it was a logically mutual decision to postpone the tour to a later date until clearance is granted by the UK government.
