I emailed the ECB a couple of weeks ago asking if they had any idea when dates would be announced and they suggested that it would be likely after yesterdays Board meeting but, like you say, no news anywhere.


Let them get in touch with the airlines and hoteliers 1st,so they can put their prices up............then they'll tell the public.

To be honest this is a bit farcical now I'm getting very irritated waiting for the West Indies cricket board to pull their finger out for this schedule let alone those on here who seem to be planning weddings and such. The way it's going the South African your details will be announced before this one.

From what I've read it seems to be a combination of West Indies inter island politics and the trademark Caribbean laid back never get anything done attitude.

Perhaps ecb should step in and tell them what islands going to and when they are to be played if organising 3 bloody cricket games is beyond them.

Well quite. Still would love to do a Caribbean tour particularly with test cricket on the decline over there and fears won't be many more tours over there but out of lads usually go with few are having heads turned by South Africa tour. Just don't think its too much to ask to organise an event 12 months in advance of it happening.

As I pointed out earlier in the thread…..

If the last series in the WI is anything to go by, about eight months before the First Test. We know that's April, so they should be announced anytime from the start of August. :roll:

Rumours circulating around the Rose Bowl that it's going to be Jamaica, Barbados and St Lucia, though I also heard Antigua mentioned for the 3rd venue

Have it on very good authority that Barbados and Antigua will both be hosting a test. 3rd is still TBC. Watch this space.....
