The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) has confirmed that the third Test between the West Indies and Australia has been moved from Guyana to Dominica.

The match will still take place from 23rd to 27th April and the change in venue comes against the backdrop of the Guyanese government trying to take over the management and governance of cricket in Guyana.

"The Guyana Cricket Board which is the agent of the WICB and the legitimate cricketing authority has been prevented from undertaking the necessary tasks needed to ensure the successful hosting of the match," a statement from the WICB read.

Dominica's Windsor Park hosted its first Test last year when India took on the West Indies in July.
