Barbados will host the third Test between West Indies and New Zealand after it was moved from Guyana. The West Indies Cricket Board announced on Saturday that a new venue would be found for the Test after a disagreement on a new bill passed by the government of Guyana.

"The third Test was originally scheduled to be played at the Guyana National Stadium but was relocated following the board and the government of Guyana not being able to find a mutually agreeable resolution relating to the Cricket Administration Bill," the WICB said in a statement.

The dates for the Test - June 26 to 30 - have not changed. New Zealand begin their tour with Tests in Jamaica and Trinidad before moving on to Bridgetown for the final Test.
