Venues for India's tour of West Indies announced

The Indians are all set to tour the Caribbean for a four match test series from mid-July to mid-August. The development comes after the Shashank Manohar headed BCCI decided to waive of the $42mn dollar debt, which the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) owed to BCCI. The debt was owed as a consequence of the losses which the BCCI had to endure when West Indies pulled out of its India tour midway in late 2014.

The venues for the tour were announced recently with the iconic Queens Park Oval in Trinidad being allotted a test. As per reports suggesting, the Queens Park Oval in Trinidad will host the final game of the series, most probably in mid-August. The other three venues for the tests are Antigua’s Sir Viv Richards Stadium, St. Lucia’s Beausejour Cricket Ground and Jamaica’s Sabina Park.

In all probability, the first test will be held in Antigua, while the second and third test will be played in St. Lucia and Jamaica respectively. India last toured West Indies for a test series just after the 2011 World Cup and won the series 1-0. Back then, led by MS Dhoni, India had won the first test in Jamaica, as the remaining two tests were drawn. Ishant Sharma, for his outstanding bowling performance, was named the Man of the Series.

The test series will have a lot at stake for both the sides. After a dream 2016 for West Indies so far, the Calypso Kings will be eager to fire all guns in tests as well. For India, Virat Kohli would want to extend his side’s dominance, after marauding Sri Lanka away, and South Africa at home.
