30 days of men’s international cricket scheduled from June 16 to August 21

ST JOHN’S, Antigua – Cricket West Indies (CWI) today confirmed the full match schedule for the West Indies Senior Men’s team from June 16 to August 21. This will see visits to the region by Bangladesh, India and New Zealand featuring all three formats of cricket.

The list of fixtures features 30 days of men’s international cricket comprising two Tests, nine CG United One-Day Internationals and 11 T20 Internationals at 10 world-class venues. This promises to be a bumper “summer of cricket” for fans across the Caribbean as well as for the West Indies diaspora in the United States of America, when West Indies and India make a return to the Broward County Cricket Stadium in Lauderhill, Florida for two T20Is against India.

Bangladesh will tour the Caribbean from June 16 to July 16 and will face West Indies in two Test matches in Antigua and St Lucia as part of the ICC World Test Championship. The two Tests will be followed by three T20Is and three CG United ODIs in Dominica and Guyana. The first two T20Is will see a return to international cricket at the fully refurbished Windsor Park, where international cricket is being hosted for the first time since the hurricane damage of 2017. The Bangladesh home series will conclude with the third T20I and then three CG United ODIs at the Guyana National Stadium.

India’s white-ball tour will commence on July 22 in Trinidad and Tobago with three CG United ODIs from July 22 to 27 at Queen’s Park Oval, Port of Spain, followed by five T20Is in three separate venues. The first T20I on Friday, July 29 will be historic as the first ever Men’s T20I to be played at the Brian Lara Cricket Academy in the south of Trinidad. The venue for the back-to-back second and third T20I matches is Warner Park, St Kitts, coinciding with Emancipation Day and Culturama holiday celebrations there. The eight-match India white ball tour concludes with an exciting weekend of back-to-back T20I fixtures at the Broward County Cricket Stadium in Lauderhill, Florida from August 6 and 7.

West Indies’ summer of cricket climaxes with New Zealand’s white-ball tour of the Caribbean, which has been rescheduled from 2020 following the COVID-19 pandemic. The BLACKCAPS will arrive in Jamaica to play three T20Is from Wednesday, August 10 to Sunday, August 14 before moving to Barbados for three day/night CG United ODIs. All three CG United ODIs are part of the ICC ODI Super League with the West Indies aiming to qualify directly for the ICC World Cup in 2023.

“We are delighted to announce the match schedule for the men’s international calendar at home for the rest of the year. We know our supporters will be delighted with the news that the matches are being played all across the region as well as those living in the USA will be able to see their favourite players in action,”

said Johnny Grave, CEO of CWI.

“This is the busiest year of cricket ever in the West Indies. In January we hosted Ireland and England in white ball formats, and also successfully staged the ICC Under 19 Men’s Cricket World Cup 2022, which featured 16 teams traversing the region. We also witnessed the Apex Test Series, against England, which West Indies won in great style and with real fight.” Grave added: “The upcoming summer is expected to feature 30 days of top-quality entertainment for our fans as we look ahead to hosting three teams of differing styles in all three formats, which will sure to whet the appetite. We are mindful that COVID-19 is still present, and we again want to thank the various Governments and other stakeholders who have worked with us to ensure the matches will be played in a safe environment.”
