The ECB have been given a free run at reorganising their international summer plans after West Indies prioritised their three Tests in England over home series against New Zealand and South Africa.

Travel logistics have also come into the thinking of Johnny Grave, Cricket West Indies' chief executive, who has been in continuous dialogue with Tom Harrison — his ECB counterpart — for several weeks on plans to relocate a Test series due to open at the Oval on June 4.
