England captain Joe Root will miss the opening Test against the West Indies next week to attend the birth of his second child. 
Star all-rounder Ben Stokes is set to lead England. Root is also a doubtful starter for the second Test as he will be required to undergo seven days of self-isolation. 
On the other hand, West Indies head coach Phil Simmons is in self-isolation after leaving his cricket team’s bio-secure location in Manchester for a short period of compassionate leave. 
Simmons attended the funeral of his father-in-law, having been given permission by medical officials.
