West Indies lead the way in 2012

TOUR OF DUTY: West Indies captain Darren Sammy

WEST INDIES will be the first tourists of England’s cricket summer in 2012. The Caribbean outfit arrive in May for three Tests, three one-day internationals and a Twenty20 game, before Australia and South Africa tour the UK.

West Indies will visit Lord's, Trent Bridge and Edgbaston for Tests, with one-day internationals at the Rose Bowl, The Oval and Headingley, and a Twenty20 international at Trent Bridge. Captain Darren Sammy's men will also take on Sussex, the England Lions, Leicestershire and Middlesex.

English Cricket Board chief executive David Collier said: "With England looking to maintain its position as the number one side in the ICC's World Test rankings and also preparing to defend the World Twenty20 title in Sri Lanka next autumn, interest in next summer's international programme will be intense.

"A record number of people attended this season's international fixtures and with an exciting summer in prospect again in 2012, we would urge spectators to buy tickets early in order to avoid disappointment."
