India will kickstart their West Indies tour with two Tests, Cricket West Indies confirmed on Monday (June 12) while announcing the schedule. As reported by Cricbuzz previously, the two Test matches, beginning on July 12 and July 20 will be played in Dominica and Trinidad.

These two Tests will be India’s first assignment in the World Test Championship for the next cycle. The teams will then play three ODIs and five T20Is following the conclusion of the Test series. The first two ODIs will be played in Barbados on July 27 and July 29.
