CWI confirms home series against Sri Lanka

The West Indies have confirmed the home series against Sri Lanka which will mark the return of international cricket to the Caribbean. The series was in doubt after Sri Lanakn head coach Mickey Arthur and opening batsman Lahiru Thirimanne tested positive for COVID-19 late last  month after tests were carried out on the provisional 36-man squad ahead of the tour to the Caribbean.

The two teams will play three T20is, three One Day Internationals (ODIs) and two test matches in a bio-secure environment in Antigua from March 3 to April 2.

The T20 series will be played on March 3, 5, 7 at the Coolidge Cricket Ground. The ODI series will be played at the Sir Vivian Richards Cricket Stadium on March 10, 12 and 14, with the third being a day/night encounter.

The two test matches will be played at the same venue with the first Match starting on Sunday, March 21 and the second starting March 29,

The West Indies men's last home series was against Ireland in January last year. Since then West Indies men have made three overseas tours to England, New Zealand and Bangladesh as part of the ICC's Future Tours Programme (FTP).
