Windies to tour Pakistan on April

Windies agreed to tour Pakistan for a three-match T20I series set to be played on April 1, 2 and 4, this year.


Pakistan Cricket Board chairman Najam Sethi announced the information on Sunday.


The tour which was set to take place in November last year was initially postponed to late March due to ‘unforeseen circumstances’ and has now been postponed further by a couple of days.


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.


Sethi said: “So I am hopeful that this ends the whole speculation around cricket in Pakistan. This is not a one-off series, we have tied up with the Windies for a period of five years. These bilateral series will be a part of the FTP, since we’ve made this agreement involving the ICC.”


There has been a change in venue as well. The three games, which were initially scheduled to be played in Lahore, will now take place in Karachi.
