Sabina Park in Jamaica will host two Test matches in the current West Indian season, after one of the two Tests against Bangladesh was switched from Georgetown in Guyana.

Zorol Barthley, the West Indies Cricket Board's chief operations officer, explained: "The Guyana Cricket Board has informed us that the timing of the tour coincides with their rainy season, hence the change."

St Lucia's Beausejour Stadium, originally the venue for the second Test, will now host the first one (May 28 to June 1), and the second Test will now take place at Sabina Park from June 4 to 8.

Bangladesh will also play three one-day Internationals against West Indies - at St Vincent's Arnos Vale Playing Field on May 15 and 16, and Grenada's Queen's Park Stadium on May 19. It will be Bangladesh's first full tour of the Caribbean, although their A team took part in the West Indian first-class competition two years ago.

Revised schedule:
May 15 - 1st ODI - St Vincent
May 16 - 2nd ODI - St Vincent
May 19 - 3rd ODI - Grenada
May 28-June 1 - 1st Test - St Lucia
June 4-8 - 2nd Test - Jamaica
