by Karen Rollins Nov 20, 2023
Antigua, Barbados, Grenada, and Trinidad are set to welcome the England men’s cricket team as they tour the West Indies throughout December 2023.
The eight-match series will include three One-Day Internationals (ODIs) and five T20 International (T20Is) games. There will be no Test matches.
The tour starts with two ODIs at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium on 3 and 6 December. The third ODI will be at Kensington Oval on 9 December. The first of five T20Is will also take place at Kensington Oval on 12 December.
Grenada’s National Stadium is the venue for two T20Is on 14 and 16 December and the tour concludes on 19 and 21 December with the penultimate and final T20Is at the Brian Lara Cricket Academy in Trinidad. This venue will be hosting a West Indies vs England men’s fixture for the first time.
In a press release, chief executive officer at Cricket West Indies, Johnny Grave, said the region was “delighted” to welcome the England cricket team and its fans to the Caribbean for a pre-Christmas tour.
He added: “This tour will be a major economic boost to the host countries, as well as providing our fans with the chance to see some of their favourite players in action against one of our biggest rivals.
“The tour will also help with our ongoing venue preparation and event planning for one of the biggest events ever to be staged in the region, the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup, which takes place in June next year.”
