Tropical storm forces rescheduling of West Indies/New Zealand Women series
Cricket West Indies (CWI) and New Zealand Cricket (NZC) have agreed to commence the CG United ODI Series between the West Indies Women and New Zealand Women on Monday September 19.
The full eight-match white ball Series has been rescheduled due to Tropical Storm Fiona passing across Antigua and the Leeward Islands on Friday and continuing bad weather conditions anticipated over the rest of the weekend.
The three-match CG United ODI series will now be played on September 19, 22 and 24, with the five-match T20 International (T20I) Series starting on September 28, including two pairs of back-to-back T20Is.
The second and fourth T20I matches will now start at 10:00h Eastern Caribbean/90:00h Jamaica time giving both teams adequate recovery time between matches.
CWI Director of Cricket Jimmy Adams said: “I’m delighted that we have been able to reach an agreement with NZ Cricket with no loss of games resulting. Hopefully the inclement weather doesn’t linger, and we can get the show started bright and early on Monday.”
