West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) chief executive Roger Brathwaite, Zimbabwe Cricket (ZC) and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), whose team is also touring the Caribbean this year, met in Dubai to hammer out a schedule.

The talks followed the withdrawal by Zimbabwe from Test cricket for one year and the BCCI request to play only a three Test series.

“In adjusting the itinerary for the Zimbabwe tour we have attempted to ensure that international cricket is played in Guyana, as they would have been without cricket with the cancellation of the Test scheduled for Guyana,” Brathwaite said.
