Last update on. From the section Cricket
England won the last series of Tests against West Indies and claimed the Wisden Trophy

England will be facing West Indies in five Twenty20s, and three Tests in The Caribbean in January and February next year.

The first five-match T20 series will be played in Barbados at the Kensington Oval between 22 January and 30 January.

After West Indies' white-ball tour in India in February, they will be competing for the Richards-Botham trophy.

The Test series starts on March 8.

The Sir Vivian Richards Cricket Ground will host the opening Test. The second and third tests will be held at the Kensington Oval, 16-20 March, and at the National Cricket Stadium in Grenada, 24-28 March.

Cricket West Indies stated that fully vaccinated England fans would be welcomed throughout the tour, and that tickets would go on sale in mid November.

West Indies last played England in a three-Test series on July 2020. This was when the tourists became first international team to arrive in the UK following the outbreak of coronavirus last March.

To regain the Wisden Trophy which was retired after the tour, the hosts won the series with a 2-1 victory. A trophy in his honour, named in honour West Indies legend Richards, and England's great Ian Botham (now Lord Botham), replaced the trophy.

The previous edition was won by West Indies 2-1. England's last Caribbean tour saw England win the T20 series 3-1 and the 5-match international series draw 2-2.

England will play West Indies, holders of the T20 World Cup on 23 October. This is a rematch from the 2016 final in Group 1 in the Super 12 stage.
