WELLINGTON, New Zealand (CMC) — New Zealand Cricket (NZC) has released details of a West Indies tour of that country, which is scheduled to begin at year's end.

The West Indies will play three Tests, five one-dayers and two T20s during their first visit to New Zealand in five years in December and January.

However, chief executive David White said he was still awaiting details of the India tour, which represents a potential money-spinner for New Zealand Cricket.

"I have to admit discussions with the Board of Cricket Control for India (BCCI) have taken longer than we hoped, but we should be able to announce the tour schedule in the next few weeks," he said.

Under the ICC's Future Tours Programme, New Zealand are supposed to host India for three Tests, five one-dayers and one T20 in February and March
next year.

India are reportedly keen to trim the New Zealand tour so they can participate in the Asia Cup, which begins in late February.
