The women teams of England and the West Indies are yet to face each other in a series of five T20Is that will be held in England in September.
England Women will have their first game after their long break as the ECB confirmed that they’ll host a five-match T20I home series against the West Indies. The said games will be held from September 21 to 30 in Derby.
As per ECB managing director of women’s cricket Clare Connor, ‘It's so pleasing after many months of work and communication with colleagues across the international game that we are now able to confirm international cricket for England Women this summer’.
‘We're grateful to the West Indies for the pace and determination with which they have worked with us over the last couple of weeks. It's fantastic for the visibility of the women's game that the third IT20 will be simulcast live on the BBC and Sky Sports and I hope that it's an event that catches the attention of some new fans’, she added.
So far, the ECB is still in contact with the ICC to ensure the regulations of the said game. Similar to other games, the said series will also be a closed-door event in a bio-secure environment. As per Connor and the other members of the board, they are still continuing to adapt to the new standards that had been set for cricket matches.
The five T20Is will be held on September 21, 23, 26, 28, and 30 respectively. To learn more about how cricket is played, visit Betwala.
