West Indies vs EnglandWest Indies vs England Test, ODI & T20 Series - Travel & Tour Packages
England's men's team is set to play five T20Is and three Tests in the Caribbean in 2022. Cricket West Indies (CWI) and the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) announced the cross-format tour on Wednesday 24th March 2021.
It is an expanded schedule to what had been planned in the International Cricket Council's (ICC) original Future Tours Programme (FTP). England were initially slated to play three T20Is and two Test matches. They will now play five T20Is and three Tests.
The Test series will see the two teams compete for the newly commissioned "Richards-Botham Trophy" for the first time. The trophy is named after two legends of the game in West Indies great Sir Vivian Richards and England icon Sir Ian Botham.
The T20I series will be the longest series to date between the two teams in the format and provide both sides an opportunity to prepare for the ICC Men's T20 World Cup in Australia in October 2022.
The expanded tour comes after the West Indies toured England last July in what was the first international cricket in more than three months following the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic.
