England will face West Indies in the 25th Caribbean Championship in January and March next year.

The first of five T20 matches will be played between the two teams at Kensington Oval and Barbados between January 22 and 30.

They will compete for the newly produced Richards-Botham Cup when the West Indies return from their white football tour of India in February.

Testing will begin on March 8.

The tests will take place at Antigua’s Sir Vivian Richards Cricket Park, second at Kensington Oval from 16-20 March, and third at Grenada National Cricket Stadium from 24-28 March.

The Cricket West Indies have announced that England fans will be greeted with vaccines during the trip, and tickets will go on sale in mid-November.

England faced the West Indies in three major tests in July 2020, when tourists became the first international team to arrive in England since the coronavirus outbreak began in March last year.

The visitors won 2-1 to reclaim the Wisden Trophy, which was removed after the trip and given it a name in honor of West India legend Richards and England legend Ian Botham, now Lord Botham.

West Indies won their last 2-1 win when England traveled to the Caribbean last season, where five games a day international teams drew 2-2 and England won T20 3-0.

The British West Indies will play on 23 October in the Group 1 final of the 2016 T20 World Cup Super 12 round on 23 October
