England in West Indies 2018-19

West Indies to host England for biggest tour in 10 years

St. John's: Cricket West Indies announced on Friday the dates for what they said was the "biggest" England tour in a decade.

The all-format two-month visit by England, which begins in January, will see them face the West Indies in three Tests, five one-day internationals and three Twenty20 Internationals.

A CWI statement said it would be "the biggest international home series between the two teams since 2009".

All the fixtures will take place in the eastern Caribbean, with Barbados, Antigua and St. Lucia staging the Test matches.

Meanwhile Barbados, Grenada and St Kitts will share the ODIs with the Twenty20s split between St Lucia and St Kitts.

The last Test series between the two sides in the West Indies ended in a 1-1 draw in 2014/15, with England retaining the Wisden Trophy on home soil thanks to a 2-1 success last year.

That was despite an impressive West Indies five-wicket win in the second Test at Headingley where Shai Hope (147 and 118 not out) became the first batsman to score hundreds in both innings of a first-class match at Yorkshire's headquarters.

The one-dayers will act as warm-ups for next year's World Cup in England, with the West Indies looking to underline their status as World Twenty20 champions in the shortest format fixtures.
