New Delhi - India will begin a 17-day tour of the West Indies next month with five one-day internationals and one Twenty20, the cricket boards of both countries confirmed Tuesday.

The ODI matches will be played at Queen's Park Oval in Trinidad and Tobago, Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua and Sabina Park in Jamaica. The only T20 is scheduled for July 9 at Sabina Park.

"The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) have confirmed India's tour to the West Indies starting June 23, 2017," the BCCI said in a statement.

India last toured the Caribbean islands in 2016 for a four-match Test series that was won by Virat Kohli's side 2-0.

India's cricket board dropped a $42 million damages claim against the West Indies over an abandoned tour in 2014.

Schedule:

June 23 - 1st ODI at Queen's Park Oval in Trinidad and Tobago.

June 25 - 2nd ODI at Queen's Park Oval in Trinidad and Tobago.

June 30 - 3rd ODI at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua and Barbuda.

July 2 - 4th ODI at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua and Barbuda.

July 6 - 5th ODI at Sabina Park in Jamaica.

July 9 - Only T20I at Sabina Park in Jamaica.
