Nagpur:The Board of Control for cricket in India (BCCI) has requested their West Indies counterparts to drop one match from a proposed four-Test series in the Caribbean, an official announced.

"We have requested them to reduce one Test from the itinerary as India are already playing enough matches there," Indian board official Shashank Manohar told reporters here on Tuesday.

India are scheduled to play four Tests and five One-day internationals on their tour of the West Indies from May 15 to July 5 with Antigua, Jamaica, St. Lucia and St. Kitts as the Test venues.

Manohar, who is the chairman of the board's fixtures committee, also announced that India would figure in a tri-series in Sri Lanka in August with South Africa as the third team in the tournament.
