Antigua & Barbuda has been named as one of three host countries for the 2015 Test series between West Indies and England from April 13 to May 5 next year.

The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB), on Sunday, announced the schedule for the England Test tour of the Caribbean.

West Indies and England will square off in three Tests in Antigua, Grenada and Barbados.

The series will commence at the Sir Vivian Richards Cricket Grounds with the first Test from April 13 to 17. England will then play their first ever Test in Grenada followed by the final Test at the Kensington Oval.

The WICB embarked on a bidding process to determine the venues for the three Test series. The three venues prevailed following the bidding process.
England played a limited overs series in the Caribbean earlier this year. That series included three One Day Internationals in Antigua and three Twenty20s in Barbados.

A couple of two-day warm up matches will precede the Test series and will be played at Warner Park in St Kitts on April 6 to 7 and 8 to 9.
