On the West Indies tour, India might play two additional 20-over matches


Later this year, the West Indies will host two more Twenty20 Internationals than originally planned, according to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). The extra games will be included in the comprehensive series, which was a part of the FTP in July-August. Instead of three T20Is, there will be 10 games total during the tour, divided between two Tests, three ODIs, and five T20Is.

In addition, the BCCI is thinking of hosting a second brief home series in June. The possibility of a three-match One-Day International (ODI) series against Sri Lanka or Afghanistan in the second half of June, specifically following the World Test Championship (WTC) final, is being looked into, though nothing has been finalized as of yet.

This kind of series will have to be scheduled between the WTC final in London (from June 7 to 11) and the start of the West Indies tour, for which the team should be on vacation in the first week of July.

Cricbuzz finds out that discussions about this have taken place with a number of boards in the past, but the outcome is still unknown. The BCCI will need to find a short-term broadcaster in the event that that series is made, as the new broadcast deal is unlikely to have been signed by then. The ongoing arrangement finished with the keep going ODI against Australia on Walk 22.

The additional games in the series against the West Indies were settled bilaterally on the sidelines of the recent ICC meetings in Dubai. Cricket West Indies (CWI) president refused to confirm or deny when contacted. BCCI and CWI have a solid reciprocal relationship that depends on common regard and comprehension of one another's requirements and job in world cricket," Ricky Skerritt told Cricbuzz.

The schedule is expected to be finalized after the CWI AGM on Saturday, and India are expected to begin the 10-game series with a Test tentatively around July 10-12. The CWI president stated, "The schedule will be out the earliest." According to a recent announcement made by Cricket Ireland, India will depart the Caribbean for Ireland, where they have agreed to play three Twenty20Is in the third week of August.

Thus, Indian teams will have a packed schedule beginning on March 31 and continuing through the World Cup, with the WTC (June 7-12, including reserve day) final immediately following the Indian Premier League (March 31-May 28). The yet-to-be-announced series is likely to take place in the second half of June, before tours to the Caribbean and Ireland, the Asia Cup in September, and a three-match one-day international series against Australia just before the ODI World Cup in October and November follow.
