The Richards-Botham Test series, part of the ICC Test Championship 2021-23, will follow after a significant break of a month with the first of the games starting on March 8. The teams will return to Barbados for the second Test (March 16-20) before the tour-ending Test at Grenada between March 24-28.
England will also play a four-day warm-up game ahead of the Test series at Coolidge Cricket Ground from March 1.

The history and rivalry between the two teams creates great anticipation for fans here in the Caribbean and around the world. These fixtures are part of a bumper year of international home cricket running from January to August in the Caribbean.” Johny Grave, CWI CEO, said.
