It is officially a 14-man West Indies Test squad plus 11 reserves who will act as net bowlers and warm-up opposition during the training period, something England are expected to replicate when they set-up camp at the Ageas Bowl on 23 June.
The West Indies will arrive in England on June 9 - almost a month before the proposed first test of the series in Southampton from July 8-12 - so the squad can quarantine and train in Manchester, the England and Wales Cricket Board said Tuesday.
Playing in empty stadiums is not ideal but a bigger challenge for players during England's home series against West Indies will be changing the way they shine the ball and keeping a lid on celebrations, former England captain Nasser Hussain has said.
The action will then move to the Emirates Old Trafford in Manchester for the second Test from July 16-20 as well as the third Test from July 24-28.
"We are in daily dialogue with the government and our medical team, who have been incredibly supportive during this period", said Steve Elworthy, the ECB's director of events. All these matches will be played behind closed doors and are still subject to UK Government approval.
The players' match fees have been increased to £5,000-per-game however to offset such losses, while the West Indies Board also hope to benefit from their act of goodwill in saving England's worldwide summer by earning an additional lucrative tour in the future.
"The bio-secure protocols will restrict movement in and out of the venues, so the selection panel has also named a list of reserve players who will travel to train and help prepare the Test squad and ensure replacements are available in case of any injury", said CWI.
Last week the European Central Bank announced it was pushing back the start of its domestic season until August at the earliest.
Tuesday's announcement came as the European Central Bank announced its financial results for 2019/20 at a virtual annual general meeting, reporting a record turnover of £228 million - an increase of £56 million.
The fallout from the coronavirus pandemic continued on Tuesday. The ECB will decide on the other series at a later date.
Ian Watmore's appointment as European Central Bank chairman was ratified on Tuesday.
