After two 55-over friendly matches in 1991, the West Indies men’s team are returning to the Netherlands for the first time to play an international series. This will also be their first meeting since their 2011 World Cup match.

“We have been working closely with our colleagues at KNCB to put together this series immediately after the IPL and we are happy to now be able to announce the match schedule. It’s going to be exciting to tour the Netherlands for the first time. It is a short tour, but we expect great entertainment during what promises to be a wonderful week of quality cricket for the fans in The Netherlands,” said Johnny Grave, CEO of CWI.

These matches will be the 2nd Cricket World Cup Super League home series for the Dutch team and we look forward to a great Caribbean style contest.”

All the three matches will be played at VRA Cricket Ground, Amstelveen.
