And, from Barbadoes come Jason Holder, Kraigg Brathwaite, Shayne Mosely, Kemar Roach, Chemar Holder, Keon Harding, Shane Dowrich, Shai Hope, Kyle Mayers, Roston Chase, Shamarh Brooks and Jomel Warrican.

 Cricket West Indies (CWI) is open to West Indies players being quarantined for the tour of England to come off, but it would want four weeks of preparation and has outlined that and other considerations to the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB).

West Indies was scheduled to begin a three-Test tour of England on June 4, but the COVID-19 pandemic has forced a postponement. 

Reports are that both the CWI and the ECB, are looking at early July, for the tour.
