West Indies Cricket have released the schedule for the upcoming Blackcaps tour with Twenty20 matches in Florida launching the series in late June.

The five One Day Internationals will be shared between Jamaica and St Kitts, with the first match on July 5th.

New Zealand will then face a West Indies Selection in a three-day warm-up match in Antigua ahead of the first Test on July 25th, before returning to Jamaica for the final Test on August 2nd.

New Zealand Cricket Chief Executive David White says taking the Twenty20 component of the tour to the USA, will be good for the profile of cricket as Cricket Holdings America works towards forming a professional Twenty20 league.
