The West Indies will tour India for two Tests, five ODIs and three T20I, starting October 2 with the first Test at Rajkot.
“Windies Men will be in India for almost seven weeks starting September 26. They will compete against India in 2 Tests, 5 ODIs and 3 T20s,” a press release from West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) stated.
“As the team embarks on a tough tour of India the successes against Sri Lanka and Bangladesh should hold them in good stead during the India series. The panel welcomes back Sunil Ambris who missed the last couple of series due to injury, along with Jomel Warrican who adds a second spin bowling option to the attack,” said Chairman of Selectors, Courtney Browne.
Meanwhile, Team India will roughly have a week to prepare for the tour with the Asia Cup 2018, starting on September 15, scheduled to end on September 28.
