West Indies have never played 'A' games ,tour or home against Australia. i.e if memory serves.
Perhaps the only country that they have never engaged. Maybe New Zealand too.
Yet there was a full scale tour of Australia's Under 19 to the Region in 1970 with games
in various Islands. Never to be repeated..or reciprocated. I think one or two players from that venture
went on to play Test cricket for OZ.
Those were building blocks for the future then and the benefits were positive.
Other countries have been playing 'A' cricket or such in OZ's winter months away from the main Test
With costs involved ,WI may not consider such ..But OZ could sponsor such as a favour and if the will
The benefits of 'A' games are huge nowadays with the sparsity of FC games in recent years.
