Team India’s next fixture announced as their West Indies tour will begin on July 22 and the five-match white-ball series, including three One-Day Internationals and five Twenty20 Internationals, will take place in Trinidad and St. Kitts as well. As per the reports, from the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and Cricket West Indies (CWI), the three ODIs will take place at the Queens Park Oval in Trinidad on July 22, 24 and 27 at the Brian Charles Lara Stadium which will also host the first of the five T20Is on July 29 as well.
However, the next two T20Is will take place at the Warner Park in St Kitts and Nevis on August 1 and 2 as well after which the series will move to Fort Lauderdale in Florida where the last two matches will take place on August 6 and 7.
“Those are the dates and the schedule will be announced once the clearance from the US comes. We are waiting for the sanctioning from the US,” a top CWI official, related to the developments, said to Cricbuzz on Friday (May 6).
However, Team India will travel to Trinidad on July 18 from the UK after finishing the Test, three T20Is and as many ODIs respectively from July 1 to 17. Meanwhile, India will reach the UK through Ireland where it is scheduled to play two ODIs, on June 26 and 28, in Dublin. Two batches of the Indian team (one including the Test specialists) are likely to leave for Ireland and England on June 20, after the five-match T20I series against South Africa from June 9 to 19 as well.
“The India series is still about three months away but medical protocols will have to be adhered to as needed,” the CWI official said.
