England v West Indies cricket – Test schedule TV coverage, dates and times plus results

England host West Indies in a Test series live on Sky Sports in July.

England host West Indies during their first Test series in a lockdown-restricted world.


Ben Stokes captained the side for the very first time as Joe Root missed out due to his wife giving birth.

The 2019 BBC Sports Personality of the Year award winner failed to steer England to victory as West Indies made light work of a 200-run target in their second innings.

Root returned for the second Test as England triumphed, although Jofra Archer was ruled out after breaching lockdown protocols.

Archer returned home to Brighton on following Monday following the first Test in Southampton, and had to undergo a period of self-isolation before returning to the team bubble.

The third and final Test is now underway.

Check out the full times, TV details and weather for the rest of the week as England v West Indies marks the glorious return of Test cricket.
