ST JOHN’S, Antigua – Cricket West Indies (CWI) and USA Cricket are delighted to announce a first-ever Women’s Youth bilateral international series, as the West Indies Women’s U19 team will travel to Florida to take on USA Women’s U19s in a five-match T20 International (T20I) series. The games are the first time in history that female youth internationals between the two teams are taking place.

With both teams having qualified for the inaugural ICC Under-19 Women’s T20 World Cup taking place in South Africa in January 2023, the series will be ideal preparation for both teams as they build up to the historic first U19 World Cup. USA Women’s Under 19 team also have the additional recent benefit of the exposure at the CWI Rising Stars Women's U19 T20 Championship, where they were crowned champions having played undefeated throughout the tournament. 

The series has been made possible because of the ongoing strategic partnership between CWI and USA Cricket which aims to unlock the potential of the USA and fast-track the growth of the sport; to inspire the next generation of young West Indians and re-ignite the cricketing passion in the Caribbean.
