Barbados to host four T20Is in December

England’s women cricket team will be touring the Caribbean to play three One Day Internationals (ODIS) and five international T20s against West Indies Women in December.

The three ODIs and the first T20 will be played at the Sir Vivian Richards Cricket Ground in Antigua, while the remaining four T20s will be at Kensington Oval in Barbados.

The longer matches are part of the ICC’s Women’s Championship 2022 to 2025, which is being contested among ten teams, to determine qualification for the 2025 World Cup in India.

The top five teams and the hosts qualify automatically. The bottom four teams and the top two from the Women’s ODI ranking will progress to a Women’s Cricket World Cup Qualifier tournament. Each team will play a total of eight three match series, four at home and four played away.

England are yet to register a point after losing the home series 3-0 to India.

Director of England’s women’s cricket Jonathon Finch said “We’re happy to be able to release the schedule for the tour of the West Indies. It’s always a great place to visit and with a new Head Coach soon to come on board it’s the beginning of a new cycle for this team. This tour also plays an important role in preparing for the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup in South Africa early next year.”

Lisa Keightley announced she would be stepping down from her role as head coach with England in August and they are yet to announce a replacement.
