India will begin its bid to become World Test champion during its Windies tour which starts in August.

India and West Indies will play two Tests of the World Test Championship (WTC) during the five-week Tour, which also includes three Twenty20 and three One-day Internationals.

After playing the first two T20Is in Florida on August 3 and 4, the teams will travel to Guyana to play the last T20I on August 6.

Guyana also hosts the first ODI, after which the other two ODIs are scheduled to be played at Trinidad.

The two Tests will take place from August 22 to 26 at the Vivian Richards Cricket Ground and in Antigua from August 30 to September 3 at Sabina Park in Jamaica.

“The West Indies and India have a long and colourful rivalry, and the MyTeam11 Series will bring more thrilling competition across every format of the game,” said Cricket West Indies Chief Executive Officer Johnny Grave.

“We’ll be seeing some of the World’s best players go head to head in T20Is, ODIs and then in the new World Test Championship. West Indies fans, young and old, will have the opportunity to see some incredible cricket.”

“We’re excited to bring two more T20Is to Florida, giving the West Indies diaspora in North America the opportunity to watch the team play ‘live’ and in person,” said CWI Commercial, Marketing and Communications Director, Dominic Warne.

“This continues our plans of growing our audience and the game’s appeal in North America to increase participation and investment back into the West Indies. The MyTeam11 Series will provide a chance for a growing audience in the United States, who follow the West Indies, to experience the fast-paced action of the T20 format.”
