As per the latest developments, India are all set to tour West Indies in July 2022. The Men in Blue will play three ODIs followed by five T20I games. It is also learnt that the ODI matches and the first three T20I will be played in Trinidad and St Kitts before both teams fly to the USA for the final two T20Is to conclude the tour.
As per the reports, all three ODI matches will be played at Queen Park Oval, Trinidad, on the 22nd, 24th, and 27th of July, respectively. Meanwhile, the first T20I game will take place at the Brian Charles Lara Stadium on the 29th of July, and then the series will move the Warner Park in St Kitts and Nevis for the next two T20I games scheduled on the 1st and 2nd of August, respectively. The final two games of the tour are scheduled on US soil as both teams will square off in Florida on the 6th and 7th of August to complete the white-ball tour.
