Mumbai, July 6 : Sony Pictures Sports Network (SPSN) has announced the return of live cricket action after more than four months, with the West Indies tour of England.
As cricket finally makes a comeback with West Indies taking on England, viewers can watch the series unfold live and exclusive on SONY SIX channels from July 8. The first Test will be played at the Ageas Bowl, Southampton, followed by the second and third Test at the Old Trafford, Manchester from July 16 and 24 respectively.
West Indies will look to defend the Wisden Trophy on English soil as the historic series will witness some of the major transformations in cricketing history due to the new regulations within the sport such as empty stands and ban on the use of saliva for shining the ball among others.
The series will also witness some of the best international cricketers from both the teams back in action. While England will look to bank on players like Joe Root, Jos Buttler and Ben Stokes among others, the young West Indies squad will look to gain motivation from their senior squad members like Jason Holder, Roston Chase and Kemar Roach.
