India are set to tour West Indies and USA for a white-ball series in July-August this year. As per a Cricket West Indies (CWI) statement, India's limited-overs tour will comprise three ODIs and five T20Is, including two in the United States. The Queen's Park Oval, Trinidad will host the ODIs. Notably, New Zealand and Bangladesh will also visit WI over the next three months.

As stated, all three ODIs will be played at Queen's Park Oval on July 22, 24, and 27 respectively. The Brian Lara Cricket Academy (Trinidad) will host the first T20I on July 29. Meanwhile, the second and third T20Is will be held at Warner Park (August 1 and 2). Lauderhill in Florida will host the last two matches on August 6 and 7.

"The upcoming summer is expected to feature 30 days of top-quality entertainment for our fans as we look ahead to hosting three teams in all three formats," Johnny Grave, CEO of CWI, said. "This is the busiest year of cricket ever in the West Indies. In January, we hosted Ireland and England in white-ball formats, and also successfully staged the U-19 World Cup."
