West Indies Cricket have released the schedule for the upcoming New Zealand tour with Twenty20 matches on 30 June and 1 July at Lauderhill in Florida launching the series.
The five One Day Internationals will be shared between Jamaica and St Kitts, with the first match on 5 July and final fixture on 16 July.
New Zealand will then face a West Indies Selection in a three-day warm-up match in Antigua ahead of the first Test on 25 July, before returning to Jamaica for the final Test on 2 August.
NZC Chief Executive David White said he was delighted the West Indies were able to take the Twenty20 component of the tour to the USA.
“Playing matches in the Florida is great for the profile of cricket as Cricket Holdings America works towards forming a professional Twenty20 league and think West Indies Cricket should be commended for the hard work that has gone into scheduling the matches,” said White.
“We’re excited about the potential impact of this series for the development and growth of cricket in the USA.
“I’m thrilled that New Zealand and the West Indies can help increase exposure and show the locals how exciting Twenty20 cricket is.”
