THE BCCI AND THE West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) have confirmed that India will play a limited-overs series in the Caribbean following the conclusion of the upcoming ICC Champions Trophy 2017 in England.
Between the period of June 20 to July 10, India will engage with West Indies in five ODIs and a T20I. The series is set to start in the twin-island of Trinidad and Tobago and end in Jamaica. With the first two ODIs being played at the Queen’s Park Oval and the next two at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua, the tour will end with a T20 at Sabina Park in Jamaica.
Speaking about the overseas tour, BCCI acting secretary Amitabh Choudhary said,
“When both these teams meet, we can always expect exciting cricket, and as always we hope to maintain that for this series.”
Meanwhile, WICB chief executive Johnny Grave stated,
“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.”
