    Barbados’ Kensington Oval will host all five T20I matches between England and the West Indies next year.

    The first ever five-match T20I Series between the two teams will run from January 22nd to 30th 2022, including two consecutive weekends of back-to-back T20I cricket.

    Then, following West Indies’ white-ball tour of India in February 2022, the West Indies will welcome England back to the Caribbean for a three-match Test Series to compete for the newly created Richards-Botham Trophy.

    The 1st Test will be played at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua from March 8th 2022, the 2nd Test will be played at Kensington Oval in Barbados from March 16th, and the 3rd Test match will bowl off on March 24th at the National Cricket Stadium in Grenada.

    The Test Series is a key fixture in both teams’ World Test Championship schedule which will determine the best Test match cricket team in the world by 2023.

    Online ticket sales will begin in mid November through CWI’s new ticket platform.
