The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) has confirmed that Barbados will host the third and final New Zealand Test later this month.

The match was originally scheduled to be held in Georgetown, Guyana, before the WICB took the decision to move the match earlier this week.

"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," a statement from the WICB confirmed.
 
"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 match will begin on 26th June and will follow Tests in Jamaica (8th-12th June) and Trinidad (16th-20th June).
