Dominica to host International Cricket, scheduled for July 2nd and 3rd, 2022

After witnessing two-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Commonwealth of Dominica is all set to welcome the International Cricket tournament to its shores.

Roseau, Dominica: After witnessing two-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Commonwealth of Dominica is all set to welcome the International Cricket tournament to its shores. The tournament will be held at Windsor Park Sports Stadium for the first time since May 2017. 

The games will be started with back-to-back matches starting next month scheduled for July 2nd and 3rd, 2022. The Windsor Park Stadium will be the prime T201 venue for the Bangladesh tour of the West Indies. The authorities have confirmed the matches of both games which will be handled between Bangladesh and the West Indies. 

A total of four international cricket matches will be held at the Windsor Park Sports Stadium. The first ODI West Indies vs Bangladesh will be held in July 2009 which is followed by a second ODI, West Indies vs South Africa in May 2010 the first T20I West Indies vs New Zealand in July 2014, and the last being a Test Match, West Indies v Pakistan from May 10-14, 2017. 

Director of Tourism Colin Piper exclaimed that the Discover Dominica Authority would like to express its gratitude to Cricket West Indies and the government of the Commonwealth of Dominica for their incredible efforts and aid in bringing international cricket ack to the country after around five years of absence.  

Cricket West Indies, Events Management Executive, Joneé Charles said “The return of T20I games to Dominica is fantastic. We are delighted that Dominica has been chosen to host these two matches, and we hope to host more in the future. After a challenging two years owing to the pandemic, we must express our gratitude to the local organizing committee and Cricket West Indies for staging these T20I matches.”

In the following days, a full announcement on entry protocols and ticketing information for the Windsor Park Sports Stadium experience will be made. In the interim, Cricket fans and patrons can expect a ‘Carnival-like’ atmosphere with various local Dominican cultural presentations and an ‘after party’ experience.
