The Government of Guyana was successful in its bid to host matches on the Indian Men’s team tour to the Caribbean in July-August, 2023.

India last visited Guyana in August 2019 for a T20I and a One-Day International.

The matches in Guyana will be the second and third in what is expected to be a three-match T20 series.

Reports have indicated the tour will comprise of two Test matches, three One-Day Internationals and three Twenty20 Internationals.

It was confirmed on Monday that the first Test will be in Dominica.

Matches are also rumored to be heading to Barbados, St. Kitts, Trinidad and Tobago and Florida, but Cricket West Indies has not yet given any confirmation as they finalise plans with the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).

The delays are linked to the ongoing Indian Premier League, India playing Australia in the World Test Championship final and the upcoming Asia Cup.
