BASSETERRE, St. Kitts - INTERNATIONAL cricket will return to Warner Park in August, when the visiting India squad squares off with the West Indies in the T20 series.
The Indians will be visiting the Caribbean and United States of America for a limited over series between July and August, with matches being played in St. Kitts, Trinidad and the US.
Regional sports broadcaster Sportsmax reported that the series would begin with the 50-Over matches at the Queens Park Oval in Trinidad and Tobago on July 22, 24 and 27, and would be followed by a lone T20 at the Brian Lara Stadium.
Action then shifts to to St. Kitts with Warner Park coming alive on August 1 and 2, and the series will wrap up in Florida on August 6 and 7.
Cricket West Indies has not officially released the dates for the second half of its home season, but it will be the first official series for the newly-minted captain, Nicholas Pooran.

Things will get underway with the 50-over matches, which will be played at Trinidad’s Queen Park Oval on July 22, 24, and 27.
