Surrey County Cricket Club is looking into the possibility of hosting matches at the Oval, with COVID-19 closing at a reduced capacity of about 6,000 fans, its chief executive Richard Gould has said.

The 25,500-capacity ground was set to host a test match between England and the West Indies in June, as the tour was pushed back due to the COVID-19 epidemic.

The government had given the green light to the elite game to return behind closed doors in June, but the cricket season, which was suspended in March, would not return as soon as July.

“25% capacity is something we’re looking at … it could be less than it is finished,” Gould told the BBC.

“The work is going on but at a very gentle pace. One of the issues of cricket is that we can only play in the summer. So we would like to understand the possibilities of getting fans later in the summer.

“But we are not going to do anything that does not have full approval. We are not going to do anything except follow government guidelines.”

British media have reported that the England and Wales Cricket Board is setting up a ‘Bio-Secure’ location with on-site hotels in Manchester and Southampton to visit Pakistan in August.

Cricket West Indies said they are in the final stages of discussion about a tour in July, once the ECB’s plans for bio-safe locations have government support.
