New Delhi:

High on confidence after their successful tour of Bangladesh, the West Indies cricket team, led by Darren Sammy, arrived in New Delhi on Thursday to play a three-match Test series and five One-day Internationals against India.

The West Indies squad arrived at the Indira Gandhi International Airport and immediately left for a city hotel.

The West Indies will first play the three-match Test series against the hosts, starting from November 6 here at the Feroz Shah Kotla ground.

The other two Tests will be held at the Eden Gardens, Kolkata (November 14-18) and Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai (November 22-26), respectively.

The ODI series will be held at Cuttack (November 29), Visakhapatnam(December 2), Ahmedabad (December 5), Indore (December 8) and Chennai (December 11).

The Caribbeans are coming fresh from their 229-run victory in the second Test against Bangladesh, which helped them to wrap up the two-Test series 1-0, after they clinched the three-match ODI series 2-1. The Windies, however, had lost the one-off Twenty20 International.
