The West Indies and New Zealand will no longer contest this month's third and final Test at the Providence Stadium in Guyana.

The West Indies Cricket Board's disagreement about a new bill passed by the government of Guyana has prompted the decision. The alternate venue will be confirmed on Monday.

The Cricket Administration Bill, which has seen an independent committee lose the administration of cricket in Guyana, according to the WICB, contravenes the International Cricket Council's bid to all but eradicate governmental interference.

Sabina Park in Kingston will host the first Test and Queen's Park Oval in Port of Spain the second. The third Test – and two Twenty20 Internationals at Windsor Park in Roseau, Dominica, will follow.
