Windies Set To Play New Zealand

Following the shellacking from England in a three-match Test series last month, the Windies are now set to travel to New Zealand in October, where they will take on the home team in three Test matches and three T20 Internationals.

New Zealand cricket is currently working with the government on the bio-security measures that will need to be in place for the visiting team.

Currently, visitors to the country are required to isolate for 14 days on arrival.

CEO of New Zealand Cricket, David White says they are looking into a model like what the English Cricket Board used when the Windies toured England.

The test series will count as points towards the ICC World Test Championship.

The last time the Caribbean side toured New Zealand was in 2017, where they lost the test series 2-0, went down 3-0 in the ODI series and lost the T20 series 2-0.

Before welcoming the West Indies, New Zealand will host Bangladesh in a limited-overs series.
