Cricket On Wednesday, June 1, the West Indies announced an action-packed summer of cricket at home.
Between June and August, the Windies will host Bangladesh, India, and New Zealand in the Caribbean Islands, as well as the United States of America, for two Tests, nine One-Day Internationals, and 11 Twenty20 Internationals at home.
Bangladesh will be the first side to arrive in the Caribbean, where they will play two Tests, three Twenty20 Internationals, and as many One-Day Internationals as they can. The tour will begin with two Tests in Antigua and St Lucia before moving on to Dominica and Guyana for white-ball action.
The two Tests against Bangladesh will be part of the current ICC World Test Championship cycle, in which West Indies are currently ranked seventh with a 35.71 point percentage. With 16.67 percent, the Tigers sit a place behind.
India’s white-ball trip will begin six days after the Bangladesh series concludes on July 16, with three one-day internationals at the Queen’s Park Oval in Trinidad and Tobago from July 22 to 27. The first T20I will be played in Trinidad, followed by two in St Kitts and the final two in Lauderhill, Florida’s Broward County Cricket Stadium.
Between the 10th and the 21st of August, the thrilling season of cricket will come to a close with three T20Is and three ODIs against New Zealand. The Black Caps were supposed to visit the Caribbean in 2020, however owing to COVID-19, the journey had to be rescheduled.
