West Indies to host Ireland in January 2020 for limited-overs series

Ireland will travel to the Caribbean next year in January to play three ODIs and as many T20 internationals, according to the announcement made by Cricket West Indies on Monday.

Barbados, Grenada and St. Kitts are the three venues which will be conducting the six games between January 7 and 19.

This marks the first time the two teams meet each other in a three-match bilateral series in both formats.

"It’s going to be a great start to the new year to welcome Ireland and their fans to the West Indies for this six-match series. It will be an exciting contest on the pitch as the West Indies play at home for the first time in five months," CWI Commercial Director Dominic Warne said.

West Indies and Ireland have contested ten ODIs against each other out of which two ended in no result.

West Indies boast a superior record having won seven games while facing their sole defeat in the 50-over format at the hands of Ireland in the 2015 World Cup.

West Indies triumphed over Ireland in two ODI games in May as part of the tri-nation series which also involved Bangladesh.

One of these encounters featured a world record opening partnership between John Campbell and Shai Hope, who put on 365 runs for the first wicket.

Ireland are scheduled to play a warm-up match on January 4 in Barbados before starting their ODI series three days later.
