ESPNcricinfo staff

Chris Gayle is set to play his 100th Test at his home ground, in Jamaica, when New Zealand tour the Caribbean in June. The WICB has announced a three Test series between the two teams, and two Twenty20s. West Indies will then host Bangladesh for two Tests, three ODIs and a one-off T20.

The Jamaica Test will kick off the New Zealand series on June 8, and then the teams will play in Trinidad (from June 16) and Guyana (from June 26). The two T20s will be played in Dominica.

The Bangladesh series will kick off with the limited-overs games in Grenada and St Kitts, followed by the Tests in St Vincent and St Lucia. Bangladesh will have fond memories of their previous tour to the West Indies, in July 2009. Then, they recorded historic wins in both the longer formats, sweeping the Tests 2-0 and ODIs 3-0 against a weakened West Indies side.
