The Australian cricket team toured the West Indies from 27 May to 15 June 2015. The tour consisted of one first-class warm-up match and two Test matches. On 8 April 2015, the West Indies Cricket Board brought forward the date of the two Test matches by two days "due to a number of logistical challenges beyond [their] control". Australia won the 2-match Test series 2–0 and therefore retained the Frank Worrell Trophy.

Squads

Australia announced their squad on 31 March 2015. They included three uncapped players, spinner Fawad Ahmed, wicket-keeper Peter Nevill and batsman Adam Voges. West Indies announced a training squad on 24 May 2015. Shivnarine Chanderpaul was not selected in the 12-man training squad, a decision that was criticised by Brian Lara. However, former fast-bowler Michael Holding backed the selectors saying that "I don't believe that cricketers should just get a series for getting a series sake". The full squad was announced on 30 May, with Chanderpaul ultimately being dropped. Australia's Chris Rogers was ruled out of the series after suffering a concussion while practicing in the nets before the first Test.
