The schedule for England’s Twenty20 and Test tour of the West Indies in January and March 2022 was recently released by Cricket West Indies (CWI) and the England and  Wales Cricket Board (ECB).
England will arrive in the Caribbean to play the first-ever five-match Twenty20 series between the two teams.
All five matches will be played across a nine-day period from Jan. 22 to Jan. 30, including two consecutive weekends back-to-back Twenty20 cricket at the Kensington Oval, Barbados.
Following West Indies’s white-ball tour of India in February 2022, the West Indies will welcome England back to the region for a three-match Test series in March to compete for the newly created Richards-Botham Trophy.
The new trophy honors Sir Vivian Richards and Lord Ian Botham whose friendship on-field heroics became synonymous with some of their respective teams’ greatest Test moments.
The first Test will be played from March 8-12 at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua and the second from March 16-20 at Kensington Oval, Barbados.
The final Test will be at the National Stadium in Grenada from March 24 – 28.
