The BBC are reporting that England will play their first Test Match in the Sir Vivian Richard's Stadium since 2009 when their last test was called off.

The tour, which is set to take place in April, also has tests set to take place at the Grenada National Stadium and the Kensington Oval in Barbados.

The last time England played a test mach at the Sir Vivian Richard's stadium was in 2009. However only 10 balls of the test were bowled and the match was abandoned due to the outfield having excess sand on it.

As a result of this, the stadium was banned for hosting any International cricket for a year. In that time, it has only hosted one other test, when West Indies beat New Zealand by nine wickets. 

England did however return to the stadium to play three One-Day-Internationals. England are also set to travel to Australia and New Zealand in February and March to play in the 50 over World Cup.

After the World Cup is over, England face both Australia and New Zealand in home test series.
