Cricket news - West Indies to host 11 Tests in three-year cycle starting 2020
Cricket West Indies have announced a new three-year fixture cycle which will see the men's team play 11 World Test Championship games, 20 ODIs and 36 T20Is at home between January 2020 and August 2022.
The women's team is expected to play a minimum of 15 ODIs -- home and away -- in the lead-up to the ICC Women's World Cup which will be played in New Zealand in 2021.
The Brian Lara Cricket Academy in Trinidad, subject to ICC's approval, is set to become the newest international venue for men's cricket; it's scheduled to host Sri Lanka for a T20I in March 2021. The Trelawny Multipurpose facility in Jamaica is also a proposed venue for a T20I against Pakistan in July 2021.
International cricket will also return to Dominica and St Vincent & the Grenadines. Windsor Park stadium will be hosting New Zealand in an ODI and a T20I next year, pending final renovations to the stadium following Hurricane Maria. Arnos Vale in St Vincent is in line to host back-to-back T20Is when Australia visit in June 2021. The last international game at the venue was when West Indies defeated Bangladesh by 10 wickets in 2014.
"This is a significant step forward for CWI and cricket fans and stakeholders across the region," CWI CEO, Johnny Grave said on Friday (October 25). "Not only does this provide a full calendar of international fixtures which allows us to better plan and schedule our cricket, but it allows everyone who supports and loves cricket to know when the next big game or tournament is coming."
