England to tour West Indies for Five T20I, three Test matches in 2022

England to tour West Indies: England are set to tour West Indies for five T20Is and three Test matches in 2022. Cricket West Indies (CWI) and the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) announced the same on Monday (October 18).

This would be England’s first-ever five-match T20I series against West Indies and it would be interesting to see how it pans out.

With the ICC World Test Championship being underway, the Test series also holds significant relevance.

All five T20I matches will take place in Barbados across a nine-day period from January 22 to 30 next year.

With England and West Indies being two of the strongest T20 teams going around, the series is set to witness some exciting action between the willow and the ball.

“Following West Indies’ white-ball tour of India in February 2022, the West Indies will welcome England back to the region for a three-match Test Series to compete for the newly created Richards-Botham Trophy. This new trophy honours two legends of cricket, Lord Ian Botham and Sir Vivian Richards, whose friendship and on-field heroics became synonymous with some of their respective teams greatest Test match moments,” the ECB said in an official statement.
