    England's stand-in captain Ben Stokes has declared his side ready to return to the cricket field, even amidst a number of Covid-19 restrictions


    His side squares off against the West Indies from tonight when the first of three tests gets underway in Southampton.

    The matches will be played without crowds, with sanitising breaks to take place during play.

    Both teams have been staying - separately - at the hotel onsite.

    Stokes says it's time to play some cricket.



    First ball is at 10pm, with Spark Sport confirming it's signed a four year rights agreement to broadcast English cricket.
