Last year, Pakistan celebrated the return of international cricket on home soil. However, since then, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has been gunning to host more international series in Pakistan.
West Indies, one of three teams alongside Ireland and Zimbabwe, showed interest in visiting Pakistan following an open invitation.
After being postponed twice, West Indies series has once again been confirmed by the chairman PCB, Najam Sethi.
Speaking to National Stadium Karachi management after his visit, Najam said:
West Indies will be touring Pakistan in April. They will play three Twent20 Internationals (T20I) on 1st, 2nd and 4th of the month at the Gaddafi Stadium Lahore.
The PCB chairman was visiting Karachi Stadium to oversee the Pakistan Super League (PSL) final preparation.
The West Indian Cricket board have signed a contract to play three matches in Lahore, but I will try to convince the board to play at least one match in Karachi.
The series will take place after the conclusion of PSL’s third edition. The final of the tournament will be played in Karachi on 25th of March.
