England is set for the biggest International Home Series against the West Indies in 10 years with the first game starting January 15, 2019.
The series will feature three Tests, five One-Day Internationals (ODI), and three Twenty 20 Internationals (T20I).
The two-month tour matches will be played in five of the region’s top tourist destinations, with the tour starting in Barbados and ending in St. Kitts.
Barbados, Antigua, and St. Lucia will host the three-match Test Series; Barbados, Grenada, and St Lucia will share the ODIs; while St. Lucia and St. Kitts will host the T20Is.
The playing history between the two teams is well known going back to over 90 years.
Both teams will contest the Wisden Trophy, having previously played 154 Tests, with the Windies in pole position with 55 wins to England’s 48 and with 51 drawn.
The last time the English men traveled to the Caribbean region for a series it ended in a 1-1 draw, with England retaining the trophy.
