More test matches for West Indies
GEORGETOWN — The West Indies are expected to play about 25 Test matches over the next two years.
This was announced by Michael Muirhead, chief executive officer of the West Indies Cricket Board at a press conference at the Guyana National Stadium Providence, during the break of the first One Day International between the West Indies and Pakistan.
“There have been a lot of complaints that we were not playing a lot of Test matches so we will be having 25 of them. We will have a lot of test cricket home and away and this will give us an opportunity to qualify for the ICC World Test Championships set for 2017. We will have enough time to fight for a spot there and then we can go after the top spot,” said Muirhead.
