SOUTHAMPTON: International cricket returned on Wednesday after a four-month absence with England and the West Indies managing just 82 minutes of play in the rain-hit opening day of the first Test that started with players taking a knee in support of the Black Lives Matter movement.

England was 35-1 at stumps, having faced only 17.4 overs because of light but intermittent rain at Southampton’s Rose Bowl, where there were no spectators for a match being played in an isolated environment because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Rory Burns was 20 not out and Joe Denly was unbeaten on 14, with Dom Sibley the man out bowled by Shannon Gabriel off the 10th delivery of the day.
