Dubai: The West Indies will prepare for the upcoming ICC Men's Cricket World Cup Qualifier with a three-game ODI series against the UAE in Sharjah at the start of next month.
It will be the first time the West Indies have taken on the UAE in a bilateral series and will be crucial for the Caribbean side as they attempt to earn a place at the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup at the end of the year.
The two-time World Cup champions finished outside the automatic qualification spots for this year's tournament during the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup Super League and will only feature at the 2023 event with a top-two finish at the qualifier during June and July in Zimbabwe.
1st ODI June 5
2nd ODI June 7
3rd ODI June 9
These key warm-up fixtures will see the West Indies take on another team that will feature at the qualifier, with the UAE winning their place at the event via a well-deserved second-placed finish at the recent ICC Men's Cricket World Cup Qualifier Playoff.
All three fixtures will take place at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium, with both teams then flying to Zimbabwe for the start of the qualifying tournament from June 18.
