World champs West Indies to face Ireland in Jamaica
Published on December 20, 2013 Email To Friend    Print Version

ST JOHN’S, Antigua -- Defending World T20 Champions West Indies will face Ireland in two T20 Internationals at Sabina Park, Jamaica in February, 2014. The two teams will also meet in a One-Day International at the historic venue.

The three-match series will be played immediately following the NAGICO Super50 Tournament in Trinidad and Tobago. The Irish will travel directly from Trinidad while the Windies will assemble in Jamaica on Sunday, February 16 to start their preparations.

Following the series West Indies will played three ODIs against England at the Sir Vivian Richards Cricket Ground in Antigua (February 28, March 2 and 5) and three T20s at Kensington Oval in Barbados (March 9, 11 and 13).

“We are delighted to welcome the Irish Team to play against our Windies in this upcoming series. It comes immediately after the NAGICO Super50 Tournament and will be a great opportunity for the squad to get quality preparation ahead of the visit by England and before they head off to defend the ICC World T20 title which they won so spectacularly back in October 2012,” said Richard Pybus, the WICB’s director of cricket.

“It will also signal the start of the international season in the West Indies and it promises to be a bumper year of cricket for the fans here in the Caribbean. The Windies will have several assignments and we foresee some tough and exciting cricket as we look to build and move up the ICC rankings in all three formats.”
