West Indies skipper Jason Holder says he will not force his teammates to travel to England for a three-test series delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic. Cricket West Indies Chief Executive Johnny Grave had said last week that the players would not be coerced to tour the UK, which has recorded over 243,600 cases and more than 34,000 deaths.
"Each player has to be comfortable in making the step," Holder told the BBC. "It's been made clear if we are to hop on a plane and go over to England to play, it must be safe ... from my perspective, I won't be forcing anyone to go anywhere."
