West Indies to host India in June
ST JOHN’S, Antigua – The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) have now finalised the schedule for India’s four-week tour of the Caribbean that include five One-Day Internationals (ODI) and one Twenty20 International (IT20) match from Tuesday, June 20 to Monday, July 10.
The series is scheduled to start in Trinidad and Tobago and end in Jamaica.
The series will begin with two ODIs at the Queen’s Park Oval, followed by two ODIs at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua and will end with one ODI and an IT20 at Sabina Park in Jamaica.
CEO of WICB, Johnny Grave said: “We are all looking forward to hosting the Indian Cricket Team so soon after Afghanistan’s inaugural tour of the Caribbean. The five-match ODI series gives our young side the opportunity of playing one of the world’s best 50-over sides, and we hope for a competitive series as we strive for automatic qualification for the 2019 Cricket World Cup.”
Acting Secretary, BCCI, Amitabh Choudray, said: “When both these teams meet, we can always expect exciting cricket, and as always we hope to maintain that for this series.”
The teams last met in August 2016 in Fort Lauderdale, where the second of two Twenty20 matches was abandoned due to rain. (PR)
