BBC Cricket Commentators: Former England women’s seamer Isa Guha is BBC’s new lead cricket presenter.
The historic West Indies’ tour of England will resume international cricket post the COVID-19 outbreak is all set to begin from tomorrow as both teams will contest against each other inside a bio-secure bubble without spectators.
If you think that these two changes are the only which will be on display tomorrow, then think again as ICC has introduced five rule changes to aid both players, officials and administrators while playing amidst a global pandemic.
As far as the teams are concerned, both England and West Indies are yet to finalize their playing XI and will need to make vital decisions with respect to their bowling divisions.

Much like the players, commentators will also have to reside inside the bio-secure bubble to ensure that no one contacts the virus. As far as the BBC Cricket Commentators are concerned, 2009 World Cup-winner and former England seamer Isa Guha will be seen playing the role of the lead cricket presenter.
