BREAKING: England To Play West Indies In September

The ECB have announced that England will host a 5 match T20 series against the West Indies in late September.

All 5 games will be played behind closed doors at Derby, but will be broadcast live on Sky, with one match also being shown Free To Air on the BBC.

  • Monday September 21: 1st T20, England v West Indies (Sky Sports)
  • Wednesday September 23: 2nd T20, England v West Indies (Sky Sports)
  • Saturday September 26: 3rd T20, England v West Indies (Sky Sports, BBC)
  • Monday September 28: 4th T20, England v West Indies (Sky Sports)
  • Wednesday September 30: 5th T20, England v West Indies (Sky Sports)

[Start times all “TBC”]

The confirmation of the schedule has necessitated a change in date for the Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy Final, which will now be played on Sunday September 27.

England currently have 24 players in their training group, and all 24 will be made available for the first two rounds of the RHF on Saturday August 29 and Monday August 31. (So expect an announcement on teams very soon!)

Anyone not selected for the Windies series will be released to return to their regional team for the final round and final of the RHF.

One thought on “BREAKING: England To Play West Indies In September

  1. Good stuff. I guess iT20s were always more likely to be scheduled now the ODI world cup’s been delayed, and they do offer a bit more flexibility with getting results in when there’s weather around. Although it is taking a bit of a risk weather-wise at that time of the year, to say the least, the last match being all but in October. Not sure either England nor West Indies players will be too happy about the potentially cold and dreary autumnal conditions, and along with the RHF it’s a shame that the upper tiers of the women’s game have been pushed so far to the back end of the summer. It’s better than nothing though and it would have been a huge lost opportunity to have no England matches for a whole summer. The ECB still owe West Indies and Pakistan cricket big time, for their effort and commitment since the crisis began. Let’s hope for a decent series once more.
