The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) has confirmed that a two-Test series in India in November is set to go ahead.

The tour will also include three One-Day Internationals with precise dates and venues yet to be confirmed.

The two Tests are likely to receive huge attention as they provide Sachin Tendulkar with the opportunity to play in his 199th and 200th Tests in front of a home crowd.

India met the West Indies in the Celkon Mobile ODI tri-series tournament in the Caribbean earlier this year, a tournament India won following their Champions Trophy victory in England.

The last time the West Indies toured India to play a Test series, in November 2011, India won the series 2-0 and the final Test in Mumbai ended as a draw with the scores level.

West Indies will leave India following the series to tour New Zealand, where they will play three Tests, five ODIs and two Twenty20 Internationals.
