West Indies will tour Australia this November and December for a two-game Test series, as they look to break a lengthy drought Down Under. 

The likes of Kraigg Braithwaite and Jason Holder will line up for the Windies in matches at Optus Stadium and Adelaide Oval, with the latter to be held as a day-night contest with the pink-ball. 

It has been 25 years since West Indies have won a Test on Australian soil, with the side losing 3-2 in a five-game series in the 1996/97 summer. 

Since that series, West Indies have toured Australia another four times in Test cricket and have failed to win a game.

West Indies previously won four Test series in Australia, with the most recent occurring in 1992/93.
