The coronavirus epidemic halted all cricket activities in early March this year. However, England made their move and organized the Test series for the first time amid the global epidemic to provide relief to fans as well as cricketers.

The English team invited the West Indies for a three-match Test series, which kicked off on 8 July. The onlookers won the series opener, but the hosts then bounced back and crushed the Windies in the subsequent Test.

All eyes were now on the third game to be held at Old Trafford, Manchester, to see who would win the series decider. Like the second match, England completely dominated the third Test and defeated the Windies by 269 runs to win the first series post coronavirus outbreak.

Although the game could have ended on the 4th and washed due to any ball being thrown. The Windies, who had lost their two wickets at the end of Day 3, resumed the final day of their overnight score of 10/2.

Stuart Broad, who took a 6-turn in the first innings, needed a wicket to complete the 500 Test scale, which he did in the 13th over of the second innings of the West Indies by ending opener Craig Brathwaite (19).

Another English pacer Chris Woakes also joined the action as he sent Shai Hope (31) and Shamar Brooks (22) in their consecutive overs. As if this problem was not enough for the tourists, middle-order batsman Roston Chase (7) met with a terrible run-out.

Vox simply did not stop there as he continued his order of taking five wickets by sending Jason Holder (12) and Shane Daurich (8) back to the pavilion. This was Vox’s fourth five-turn in Test cricket.

Broad again came into the attack and completed the proceedings by dismissing Jermaine Blackwood (23) to complete his 10 wickets in the match.
