West Indies Women to play England

West Indies Women will play a five-match Twenty20 International series against England Women in September this year.

The England and Wales Cricket Board recently announced that the first two matches at the Riverside ground and Old Trafford on Sept. 8 and 10 respectively, scheduled directly before England men take on South Africa in Twenty20 International, would be televised.

The third women’s Twenty20 will be played at the County Ground, Northampton on Sept. 13, followed by the penultimate match at the County Ground, Hove two days later.

The series will culminate with the fifth Twenty20 at Arundel Cricket Club in Sussex on Sept.16.

The series will be the international competition for both teams before the Women’s World Twenty20 in Sri Lanka, which starts 10 days later.

Before heading to India, West Indies are set to host India next month for a series of five Twenty20s and three One-Day Internationals.

Matches will be played at the Vivian Richard’s Cricket Ground, Antigua, Windsor Park, Dominica and Warner Park, St. Kitts.

The WICB said the West Indies Women will have a 12-day pre-series camp in Antigua ahead of the series against India Women later this month.
