The series is part of the ICC World Test Championship. The Windies will first play a four-day warmup match beginning on November 14 in Colombo. The first Test is scheduled to begin on November 21, with the second starting November 29.

After the Sri Lanka series, West Indies will tour Pakistan for a white-ball series, featuring three ODIs and three T20Is between December 13 and 22.

Windies are expected to reach Pakistan on December 9.

Meanwhile, star all-rounder Dwayne Bravo has confirmed that he would be hanging up his boots after the T20 World Cup. Windies play Australia in their final Super 12 match on Saturday. The 38-year-old has so far played 293 T20Is. He already retired from other formats of the game.
