The dates and details for the Sandals West Indies tour of England have been announced by the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) with Hampshire’s Ageas Bowl and Lancashire’s Emirates Old Trafford hosting the three Tests matches behind closed doors. The West Indies squad will arrive in the UK on Tuesday June 9, travelling to Old Trafford for quarantining and training. This will be their base for a three-week period before moving to the Ageas Bowl for the start of the first Test.

The ECB’s independent Host Venue Panel (HVP) recommended the use of two full matchday broadcast venues for the West Indies Test series. A decision on other scheduled matches for England Men and England Women this summer will be determined at a later date.
International venues were encouraged to submit their expressions of interest during a five-day window, based on several fundamental principles. Four venues submitted an interest in staging matches by the deadline of Monday May 11, with the final recommendations for the use of the Ageas Bowl and Emirates Old Trafford later ratified by the ECB Board.
