WI Confirm Tour to England
« on: December 05, 2008, 04:54:24 PM »

The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) has today confirmed to the England and Wales Cricket Board that the West Indies will tour in April and May 2009 to replace the tour scheduled by Zimbabwe.

What you guys think?  I think it should be a fairly balanced tour, and a much better test than Zim!

Why is it stupid. Good practice before we get the real test up against the Australians! It will still be a challenge though up against the likes of Gayle, Sarwan and Chanderpaul.

Hi, I think the series will be a very good for England because it will give time for our batsmen to get in form and it also makes sure that our bowlers aren't rusty.
