Kensington Oval will host two One-Day Internationals at the end of July as part of the India cricket tour of the West Indies.
The 1st and 2nd CG United ODIs will be played on July 27 and 29, while the third will be played on August 1 at the Brian Lara Cricket Academy in Trinidad, which will be hosting a West Indies Men’s ODI for the first time.
The series starts with two Test matches as part of the 2023-2025 ICC World Test Championship. Windsor Park in Dominica will host the first Test match from July 12 to 16. The second Test match, to be played from July 20 to 24 at Queen’s Park Oval in Trinidad, will be historic, marking the 100th Test match played between the two teams.
The T20Is also bowl off at Brian Lara Cricket Academy on August 3. Guyana hosts the second and third T20Is at the Guyana National Stadium on August 6 and 8. The T20I Series concludes in Lauderhill, Florida with a blockbuster weekend of back-to-back matches on August 12 and 13 at Broward County Cricket Stadium.
CEO of CWI, Johnny Grave, said: “We are delighted to be able to confirm the schedule and venues for the highly anticipated visit by India. One of the highlights will be the 100th Test at the Queen’s Park Oval and this promises to be a fantastic occasion as we celebrate this historic event between these two proud cricketing nations.”
He added: “We also look forward to hosting India in the white ball fixtures and welcoming fans to attend the matches across the region, as well as in the United States. It will be 18 days of entertainment for cricket lovers to enjoy and saviour.”
