The ECB has confirmed the itinerary for England’s 2009 winter tour of the West Indies comprising of four Tests, one international Twenty20 match and a five-match one-day international series.
England will arrive in Barbados on Wednesday January 21, where they will play two three-day warm up matches before moving to Jamaica for the first Test against the West Indies at Sabina Park on Wednesday February 4.
The fourth and final Test (March 6-10) will be played at Queen’s Park Oval in Trinidad, with the same venue hosting the international Twenty20 match less than a week later.
The tour concludes in St Lucia on Saturday April 4, following the final day-night ODI the previous day at the Beausejour Stadium.
