The coronavirus pandemic has brought many changes in our lives and we will experience some more as the world will open more. As of now, there is no cricketing event taking place in India but West Indies and England will soon clash in the three-match test series starting 8th July 2020. The England and Wales Cricket Board is taking all the precautions and safety measures in regard to the health and well-being of the cricketers and for this purpose, the England cricketers have been sent into a bio-secure environment for training sessions.
The series will be played in the empty stadiums due to the COVID-19 outbreak; however the good thing is that cricket fans will be able to enjoy the game on their television sets. Before the England players entered the bio-secure environment, they were tested for COVID-19.
The official Twitter handle of ECB uploaded a tweet with the photos of England players (Skipper Joe Root, Stuart Broad, Moeen Ali and Chris Woakes) undergoing swab test and the caption of the pic read, “Life in the bubble begins”.
Here is the tweet:

While everything else looked normal, the expressions of Stuart Broad and Chris Woakes were quite funny and Twitter didn’t waste time in having some fun at their expense. Check out some of the selected tweets:

The BCCI is not in the mood to start organizing cricketing events as of now as the number of COVID-19 positive patients is on the rise. The IPL 2020 was also postponed on account of the pandemic but as per some reports, the tournament may be organized in September-October this year.
