Windies to tour Ireland

The West Indies team has been confirmed to play in Ireland next summer, as part of a major international schedule in which 16 international fixtures will be played around Ireland in 2019.

The Caribbean team will also compete in a One-Day International (ODI) tri-series with Ireland and Bangladesh.

The Windies last tour of Ireland was in 2017, however, a scheduled match at Stormont was abandoned without a ball being bowled.

The first match against the West Indies will bowl off on May 5 at Clontarf, just two days after the much-anticipated One-Day International against England, which takes place in Malahide on May 3.

Ireland will face the West Indies again on May 11 in Malahide, with two games against Bangladesh either side of that match.

The top two teams in the One-Day International tri-series will then play the final on May 17.
