The final Test of the three-match series will be a day-night encounter at the Kensington Oval in Barbados starting 23 June, said Sri Lanka Cricket.

Sri Lanka depart for the West Indies in late May and will play a two-day warm up match before the opening Test starting 6 June at the Queen's Park Oval in Trinidad and Tobago.

The second Test gets under way 14 June at St. Lucia.

The West Indies have played two day-night Tests but never on home soil. Sri Lanka made their pink-ball Test debut against Pakistan last year in the United Arab Emirates.

Australia hosted New Zealand for the first-ever Test played under lights with a pink ball at the Adelaide Oval in November 2015.
