The women’s team is expected to play a minimum of 15 ODIs — home and away — in the lead-up to the ICC Women’s World Cup which will be played in New Zealand in 2021.

The Brian Lara Cricket Academy in Trinidad, subject to ICC’s approval, is set to become the newest international venue for men’s cricket; it’s scheduled to host Sri Lanka for a T20I in March 2021. The Trelawny Multipurpose facility in Jamaica is also a proposed venue for a T20I against Pakistan in July 2021.

International cricket will also return to Dominica and St Vincent & the Grenadines. Windsor Park stadium will be hosting New Zealand in an ODI and a T20I next year, pending final renovations to the stadium following Hurricane Maria. Arnos Vale in St Vincent is in line to host back-to-back T20Is when Australia visit in June 2021. The last international game at the venue was when West Indies defeated Bangladesh by 10 wickets in 2014.
