Chris Gayle is in line to play his 100th Test at his home ground in Jamaica after the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) revealed the fixtures and venues for home series with Bangladesh and New Zealand.

New Zealand will tour the Caribbean to play three Tests and two Twenty20 Internationals between 8th June and 6th July.

They will start with the first Test at Sabina Park, where Gayle's 100th Test will be celebrated, before moving on to Trinidad and Guyana with Dominica hosting both Twenty20 games.

Gayle would have played his landmark Test in New Zealand had he not torn a hamstring during an ODI series in India in November.

In August and September, Bangladesh arrive to play three One-Day Internationals, a single Twenty20 International and two Test matches.

Grenada, St Kitts, St Vincent and St Lucia will host those matches which conclude West Indies' international summer.
