Dubai, Apr.15 (ANI): The International Cricket Council (ICC) has announced the schedule of warm-up matches to be played in the lead-up to the ICC World Twenty20 2010 to be staged in the West Indies from 30 April to 16 May.

With just 16 days to go before the first match takes place in Guyana on 30 April, both the men's and women's teams will play a series of warm-up matches against either other competing teams or host XIs where a competing team is not available.

The men's teams will play their warm-ups from 27 to 29 April in Barbados, St Lucia and Guyana while the women will play on 2 and 3 May in St Kitts. In line with previous ICC events, none of these matches will carry official Twenty20 International status.

It should be noted in the men's warm-up schedule that India has elected not to play any warm-up matches while Sri Lanka has opted to play only one warm-up match.

Admission is free to all the warm-up matches. A limited number of tickets are still available for the main tournament and can be purchased here: http://icc-cricket.yahoo.net/events_and_awards/twenty20/eventinfo/tickets.php
