West Indies to play T20 series in Pakistan


Islamabad:Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman Najam Sethi announced that all three T20 matches of the upcoming West Indies' tour will be held at National Stadium Karachi.

The PCB had been trying to convince foreign teams to restart worldwide cricket back in Pakistan.

Pakistan all-rounder Imad Wasim has been declared "stable" after the left-hander injued himself while playing for Karachi Kings against Lahore Qalandars during a Pakistan Super League match.

In November, last year, Sethi had stated that Cricket West Indies and Pakistan Cricket Board had signed an agreement to play T20Is series every year for a period of next five years, in Pakistan and the USA.

The three games, which were initially scheduled to be played in Lahore, will now take place in Karachi.

Pakistan has played virtually all its home series in the United Arab Emirates since then.

"That is how we intend to put Karachi back on cricket map once again". "Good news is that West Indies will play three games, on [April, 1, 2 and 4], but these matches will be played in Karachi".

An ICC security consultant will visit Karachi during the PSL final and Sethi said the PCB has contracted the same consultant for the West Indies series. This will be a one-off series, since, as I told you before, it will be a loss-making enterprise.
