New Delhi: Hyderabad and Rajkot will host two Test matches against the West Indies, according to India’s home series itinerary, finalised by the BCCI on Saturday.
The Indian team will play only three Test matches at home -- the historic first against Afghanistan in June along with two more against West Indies in October after Diwali.
Apart from that, India also host the Caribbeans for five ODIs in Mumbai, Guwahati, Korchi, Indore and Pune in early November.
The series will end with three Twenty20 Internationals at Kolkata, Chennai and Kanpur (or Lucknow).
The Kolkata T20 will held on November 4 but dates for other matches are yet to be known. CAB president Sourav Ganguly was a special invitee (as technical committee chairman) at the Tours and Fixtures Committee meeting today.
The day-night Test is subject to approval from the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA).
The CoA's head Vinod Rai had earlier pulled up BCCI's acting secretary Amitabh Choudhary for hastily initiating a move to schedule India's maiden day-night Test against the Windies in October without consulting his panel and the other office-bearers of the board.
