ST JOHN’S – West Indies will look to build on their exploits during the recent ICC Women’s Twenty20 World Cup when they tour England next year for a six-match limited overs series at several major country venues.
The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) announced yesterday the itinerary for the much anticipated tour, which will run from June 6-25. The two teams will contest three T20 Internationals and three one-day internationals, the latter of which will form part of the ICC Women’s Championship – the qualification criteria for the 2021 50-overs World Cup.
The Windies last toured England for a bilateral series 11 years ago when the now-retired Nadine George captained a side, which included the teenaged pair of Stafanie Taylor and Deandra Dottin.
Taylor, now captain, said the Windies would be up for the challenge when they renew their rivalry with the hosts. (CMC)
