New Delhi: India will begin a 17-day tour of the West Indies next month with five one-day internationals and one Twenty20, the cricket boards of both countries confirmed on Tuesday.

The ODI matches will be played at Queen’s Park Oval in Trinidad and Tobago, Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua and Sabina Park in Jamaica. The only T20 is scheduled for July 9 at Sabina Park.

‘The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) have confirmed India’s tour to the West Indies starting June 23, 2017,’ the BCCI said in a statement.
