Start time adjusted for Women’s series

The West Indies Cricket Board has announced that it has adjusted the starting times for the International Home Series between West Indies Women and Pakistan Women next month.

All four of the One-day Internationals on the schedule will now become day/night fixtures, each starting at 2 p.m. at the Beausejour Cricket Ground in St. Lucia.

Three Twenty20 Internationals at the National Cricket Stadium in Grenada follow the ODIs and will now each start an hour earlier at 1 p.m.

“We believe the adjusted times will allow more people to view the matches and give our players a new playing experience,” said WICB operations officer, women’s cricket, Josina Luke.

An 18-member West Indies Women’s training squad will be encamped in St. Lucia from October 1 in preparation for the series.
