The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) has released the itinerary for the seven-week tour of India to the Caribbean starting in July.

The tour was thrown in jeopardy after the West Indies pulled out of a series on the sub-continent two years ago.

India will play four Tests matches over a 49-day stint in the region following a couple of warm-up matches in St. Kitts, the WICB said in a statement.

The Indians will arrive in St. Kitts on July 6 for two-day warm-up matches at Warner Park on July 9-10 followed by a three-day fixture at the same venue between July 14-16.

The first Test begins on July 21 at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium, Antigua, while the second will start on July 30 at Sabina Park, Jamaica.

The Indians will then travel to St. Lucia for the third Test, to be played at the Darren Sammy Cricket Stadium from Aug. 9.

The final game of the series will be held at the Queen’s Park Oval, Port of Spain, Trinidad from Aug. 18.
