Following schedule is the last time India will be playing some cricket in West Indies before the World Cup in March 2007. This schedule of India vs West Indies in 2006 has 5 One day Internationals and Four Test Matches. First the Sechedule was supposed to be of just three test Matches but later, the West Indies cricket board(WICB) and India cricket board (BCCI) decided to go with the previously decided schedule of India's tour of West Indies.
Even I feel this schedule of four test matches is better than three test matches, as additional test match will provide our players to understand the west Indies conditions and prepare better for the World Cup. More over, its always good to have one more game in your schedule of such a tour of West Indies in order to come back in the series.. if situation rises!!
One last thing - I am sure our players will have a great time on the beaches of caribbean and it will reflect in their performance of West Indies tour. And as a viewer, you are adviced to get you ticket for the up coming series, of better note down the day and dates of the matches... The matches will be starting 1930 hrs India time.
