Cricket West Indies (CWI) President Dave Cameron is negotiating with governments in the Caribbean over hosting the India tour of the region next summer after the 2019 Cricket World Cup.

He has been speaking to the governments of Jamaica, Guyana and Trinidad and Tobago for matches with the powerful Indian team.

This was revealed by Cameron who said with an Australia Women’s tour in 2019 to the Caribbean too, there are still several matches still to be scheduled to ensure each international venue hosts Windies cricket next year.

For major international home tours against England and India, countries are asked by CWI to bid for matches.

Cameron said once the bids are received they are reviewed by the CWI International Fixtures Committee (IFC) after which a recommendation is made to the board for a final decision on the tour schedule.

The CWI president has thanked all the regional governments that took part in the recent bidding process for their support of the upcoming England Tour next year.

Cameron said England tours to the West Indies have a tremendously positive impact on the countries who bid to host the games.

He said West Indies cricket can be used as a platform to promote the host countries and their tourism to cricket fans in England and around the world.
