Sides will play five T20Is in January, three Tests in March after West Indies travelled to England last year

England will extend its tours of West Indies in 2022, adding an extra Test and two more T20Is to their schedule.

The tour next January will now feature five T20Is – increased from three matches – to be followed by England returning to the Caribbean for three Test matches in March – increased from the original two games.

The possibility of extending the tour, expected to be worth nearly US$100m to the region, was reported by ESPNcricinfo last week, with CWI President Ricky Skerritt saying it would be an acknowledgement of West Indies’ agreement to travel to England last year, which he said didn’t earn the tourists anything, but which helped the ECB stage a complete international season in the middle of the pandemic and avoid a £380 million budget black hole.
