Cape Town – The Caribbean will be the epicentre of the cricket world next June, when two of the world’s leading teams visit for a three-nation One-day International tournament.

Hosts West Indies will face-off with reigning One-day world champions Australia and current world No.3 South Africa in a 10-match tournament over a three-week period from Wednesday, June 6 to Sunday, June 26 according to the West Indies Cricket website.

“This tournament promises to be very exciting with two of the world’s top teams coming to the Caribbean,” said WICB Manager, Cricket Operations Roland Holder.

“It will provide a golden opportunity for our team to test themselves against two of the best sides in the world in the ODI format.”

The Tournament opens with round-robin matches contested at the Guyana National Stadium before the teams travel to Basseterre in St. Kitts for another series of matches at Warner Park with the series moving to the Barbados capital of Bridgetown for the final round of matches at Kensington Oval, culminating with the Final.

“Australia won the ICC Cricket World Cup on home soil earlier this year and South Africa are highly ranked in this format, but are also the No.1 side in Tests,” said Holder. “These two sides have shared some fascinating rivalries not only in ODI's, but other formats of the international game in recent years.

“The regional audience, therefore, will have a rare chance to attend and see this strong rivalry played out before their eyes, so we expect them to pack the three venues and bring the noise and colour associated with the game in the region.”
