India to tour West Indies in 2009

November 07, 2008 21:38 IST

The Indian cricket team will tour the West Indies next year in June to play a four-match ODI series.

"The West Indies will host three touring teams next year, including a reciprocal tour by India late June," West Indies Cricket Board's Chief Cricket Operations Officer Tony Howard said in a statement.

The four matches, scheduled after the Twenty20 World Championship in England, are planned of June 26 and 28 and July 3 and 5.

Before India, Howard said, England will arrive in mid-January for a tour comprising four Tests, five ODIs and a Twenty20 International. 

Bangladesh will be in Caribbean in late March for a one-month tour, which will feature two Tests, three ODIs and a Twenty20 International.

Howard said the tour by India is a reciprocal trip to that undertaken by West Indies just before the last year's ODI World Cup in the Caribbean.
