What Lies Ahead For Windies In 2019

The Windies cricket team will be in the hunt early next year seeking not only to improve their ICC rankings but also to take home some silverware.

The fact is the team’s cupboard has laid bare up until recently when they pull off a 2-1 T20I win against Bangladesh.

However, apart from that series win, there is nothing else to shout about, and one could say without any fear of contradiction that the Windies has lost its swagger from its glorious heyday to what obtains today:

Tests: Played 9, Won 3, Lost 5, Draw 1 Ranking: 8

ODIs: Played 11, Won 3, Lost 7, Tie 1 Ranking: 9

T20Is: Played 9, Won 3, Lost 6, Tie 0 Ranking: 7

The team’s first outing for the new year will be a home series against England where they’re set to play three Tests, five ODIs, and three T20Is, between January and February.

The Windies schedule also includes the following:

June-July – ICC World Cup 2019

July-August – Host India for two Tests and three ODIs

October – Tour Zimbabwe for 1 Test and five ODIs

November – Tour India to play Afghanistan in one Test, three ODIs and three T20Is

December – Hosted by India for three ODIs and three T20Is

Now, one cannot help but wish the team a Happy New Year and better returns!
