West Indian cricket team in India and Sri Lanka in 1978–79

The West Indies cricket team, captained by Alvin Kallicharran, toured India and Sri Lanka from November 1978 to February 1979 and played a six-match Test series against the India national cricket team. India won the series 1–0. In Sri Lanka, the West Indians played two internationals against the Sri Lanka national cricket team which had not then achieved Test status; therefore, the internationals played at the Paikiasothy Saravanamuttu Stadium and the Sinhalese Sports Club Ground, both in Colombo, are classified as first-class matches. India were captained by Sunil Gavaskar and Sri Lanka by Anura Tennekoon.[1]
