Indian team would play three Tests and five one-day internationals during their two-month tour of West Indies commencing on May 15, BCCI said on Tuesday.

"We have asked the West Indies Cricket Board to finalise three Tests instead of four as we have already played excess Test matches there", BCCI Fixture Committee Chairman Shasank Manohar told.

The Indian team would also participate in a triangular series in Sri Lanka with Lanka and South Africa, BCCI secretary Niranjan Shah, who was also present, said.

Manohar said India 'A' team would tour Australia and India under-19 teams would be touring England between June and July.

BCCI has requested its counterpart in Abu Dhabi to postpone the India 'A' fixtures from March 9-20 in view of the domestic matches to played during the period. "We have requested Abu Dhabi to start the tournament from March 20", he added.
