The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and Cricket West Indies (CWI) have announced the revised schedule for the upcoming T20I series between Pakistan and West Indies.
Initially, the five-match T20I series was scheduled to begin on 27 July but the schedule of the series had to be revised because of the delay in the ODI series between Australia and West Indies due to COVID-19.
Both the cricket boards have decided that the five-match T20I series will be reduced to four matches and the series will now commence on 28 July at Kensignton Oval, Barbados. The rest of the three T20Is will be played at Guyana National Stadium on 31 July, 1 August, and 3 August.
Ricky Skerritt, CWI President said, “Together with the PCB, CWI has examined various scenarios, and we jointly agreed that the best solution in the present circumstances is to cancel the first T20I and play a four-match T20I series starting on Wednesday and keep the rest of the tour schedule unchanged.”
The four-match T20I series will be followed up by a two-match Test series, scheduled to begin from 12 August. Pakistan’s T20I squad already arrived in West Indies last week and the first batch of the Test squad has also left for the Caribbean.
Here is the revised schedule:
|Wednesday, 28 July||1st T20I||Kensington Oval, Barbados||7:00pm|
|Saturday, 31 July||2nd T20I||Guyana National Stadium||8:00pm|
|Sunday, 1 August||3rd T20I||Guyana National Stadium||8:00pm|
|Tuesday, 3 August||4th T20I||Guyana National Stadium||8:00pm|
|12-16 August||1st Test Match||Sabina Park, Jamaica||8:00pm|
|20-24 August||2nd Test Match||Sabina Park, Jamaica||8:00pm|
