KINGSTON – Cricket West Indies (CWI) is anticipating a financial windfall this year, with four major home tours expected to provide a much needed injection of money for the cash-strapped Antigua-based body.

Sri Lanka, South Africa, Australia and Pakistan are all expected in the Caribbean later in the year, marking the first home series since Ireland toured for a mixture of One-Day Internationals and Twenty20 Internationals last January.

The region had been scheduled to host several home tours in 2020 but the COVID-19 pandemic forced the entire itinerary to be scrapped.

CWI chief executive Johnny Grave said in the wake of the disappointments last year, 2021 would be an “unprecedented” year in which West Indies are scheduled to play nearly all of their cricket at home. (CMC)
