England on Monday announced the itinerary of their tour to the West Indies next year in April-May. England will be playing their first-ever Test match at the National Cricket Ground in Grenada along with two other Tests on tour.

According to England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) website, the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) announced the schedule of their bilateral series next year. Grenada will be hosting a Test match, which will be the third Test on the venue. Grenada last staged a Test match against Bangladesh in 2009.

Paul Downton, Managing Director England Cricket, said: “We thank the West Indies Cricket Board for their assistance with the organisation of the tour and we know the venues will prove extremely popular with the thousands of cricket lovers who follow England to the Caribbean. It will also be exciting for many to visit the new venue of Grenada for the first time.”
