Lord’s to host 2012 Test Match between England and West Indies

England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) has announced that Marylebone Cricket Club had been awarded an England v West Indies Test Match at Lord’s in 2012.

The match was originally been awarded to Glamorgan CCC but was put back out to tender last month after the club advised ECB that it would be late in making its payment of the staging fee for hosting the recent England v Sri Lanka npower Test Match in Cardiff.

The dates for next summer’s Lord’s Test Match against West Indies will not be announced until the ECB has finalised the international match schedule for 2012 in its entirety.

West Indies are scheduled to visit England in May and June next summer for a three-match Test series followed by three NatWest Series One-Day Internationals and a NatWest International T20.
