India’s next tour, which will be their first after losing to Australia in the World Test final, will consist of two Tests, three ODIs and five T20Is.
For the Windies, the series will be their first after an early exit from the ICC World Cup qualifiers that saw them miss out on the Men’s ODI World Cup for the first time since 1975.
However, mentor and former West Indies skipper Brian Lara believes his team is well placed to challenge the visitors.
We have two very important Test matches that start the two-year (Test World Cup) cycle for us, it’s against India. Both home and away, they are one of the best teams in the world, Lara said ahead of the first Test, which begins on Wednesday, July 12.
