Caribbean Life: Trinidad to host 100th Test, ODI and T20 in India tour

Trinidad and Tobago will host one Test, one One-Day International and one Twenty20 match during India’s tour of the West Indies from July 12 to Aug. 13.

The first Test match begins at the picturesque Windsor Park in Dominica, hosting its first match in six years from July 12 -16, before shifting to the Queen’s Park Oval, Trinidad for a historic 100th Test match from July 20-24 between the two teams.

The two teams will clash in the opening two ODI’s at Kingston Oval in Barbados on July 27 and 29. T&T will also host the third match of the ODI series at the Brian Lara Cricket Academy on Aug. 1.

At the same venue on Aug. 3, the T20I series bowls off, before heading to Guyana’s National Stadium on Aug. 6 and 8 and then to Florida at Central Broward Regional Park Stadium, Lauderhill on Aug. 12 and 13 for the last two T20Is, North America providing the scene for the series finale.

Cricket West Indies recently announced the itinerary for the all-formats tour. CWI CEO, Johnny Grave said, “We are delighted to be able to confirm the schedule and venues for the highly anticipated visit by India. One of the highlights will be the 100th Test at the Queen’s Park Oval and this promises to be a fantastic occasion as we celebrate this historic event between these two proud cricketing nations.”

Grave added,” We also look forward to hosting India in the white-ball fixtures and welcoming fans to attend the matches across the region, as well as in the United States. It will be 18 days of entertainment for cricket lovers to enjoy and savour.”

West Indies team is staring at a difficult tour in all formats. The team has not beaten India in a Test series in two decades and has not won a single Test during that period.

The Caribbean side has also not won an ODI series against the Indians in 17 years, while losing the last five T20I series and managing just two wins in their last 17 matches.
