Windsor Park in Dominica is one of the home grounds of the Windward Islands cricket team.

The Windward Islands are one of the regions which make up the West Indies cricket team. It has produced international cricketers in all forms of the game—Tests, One Day Internationals (ODIs) and Twenty20 Internationals (T20Is). In cricketing terms the Windward Islands are made up from the following nations: Dominica, Grenada, Saint Lucia and Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. The current captain of the West Indies team is the Saint Lucian Darren Sammy, who is the only player from the Windwards to hold this position.[1]

The Vincentian Alphonso Roberts became the first player from the Windwards to represent the West Indies when he played his only Test match in 1956.[2] The only players from the Windwards to have played in over thirty Test matches are the Grenadians Junior Murray and Devon Smith.[3] Smith is the highest Test and ODI run scorer from the Windwards.[4][5] Winston Davis is the leading Test wicket taker from the Windwards,[6] while Nixon McLean has taken the most ODI wickets.[7]
