BCCI made revisions to the West Indies tour of India on Saturday, taking into account the country's growing Covid-19 situation. From February 6 to 20, the West Indies will play three ODIs and three T20Is, with the number of venues reduced from six to two.

ODIs will now be played at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad, while the three T20Is will be played at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata. The BCCI had initially picked Ahmedabad, Jaipur, Kolkata, Cuttack, Visakhapatnam, and Thiruvananthapuram as the Venus for the ODI and T20I series.
