West Indies To Face India

News Americas, MUMBAI, India, Fri. Oct. 14, 2011: The West Indies cricket site are set to face India next month on the heels of their Bangladesh tour.

The West Indies are currently in Bangladesh for one T20I, three ODIs and two Tests and will then move on to Ferozshah Kotla in Delhi for three Test matches between India from November 6-26.

Earlier this year, India beat West Indies 3-2 in a five-match ODI series and also won the three-Test series 1-0.

The match announcement comes as the West Indies Cricket Board on Thursday announced that the Regional Super50 winner’s trophy will be named after one of the most revered leaders in the history of world sport – Guyana-born, Clive Hubert Lloyd.

The Board said the legendary former West Indies captain was chosen particularly in recognition of his leading the West Indies to lifting the first two Cricket World Cups in 1975 and 1979.

Lloyd was the revered leader of the West Indies team as it dominated world cricket from the late 1970s throughout the 1980s. He was integral to the rise of West Indies cricket and one of the most successful captains in the history of cricket.

Lloyd played for West Indies from 1966 to 1985 and captained the team from 1974 until the end of his career.

The Regional Super50 will be played from October 19th to the 29th, in Guyana.
