ST JOHN’S, Antigua – The West Indies Cricket Board on Monday advised that the Third Test between West Indies and New Zealand will be played at the Kensington Oval in Barbados.

The dates of the Test – June 26 to 30 – remain.

The WICB thanks the Barbados Cricket Association and the Government of Barbados for their commitment in ensuring that the match is successfully hosted following the rescheduling.

The Test will be a bonus for cricket fans in Barbados who witnessed three enthralling Twenty20 Internationals between the West Indies and England in March this year.

The Third Test was originally scheduled to be played at the Guyana National Stadium but was relocated following the Board and the Government of Guyana not being able to find a mutually agreeable resolution relating to the Cricket Administration Bill.

The opening Test bowls off at Sabina Park in Jamaica from June 8-12 with the second Test scheduled for Queen’s Park Oval in Port of Spain from June 16-20.
