West Indies to play T20 series in Pakistan

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

Since then, Pakistan hosted two Twenty20 and three one-day internationals against Zimbabwe in 2015 but last year's final of the Pakistan Super League (PSL), three T20 internationals against a World XI and a T20 worldwide match against Sri Lanka helped convince the West Indies. Karachi is also set to host the final of the ongoing Pakistan Super League. "Good news is that West Indies will play three games, on [April, 1, 2 and 4], but these matches will be played in Karachi".

"I have been working day and night to conclude an agreement with West Indies which I have finalized", PCB chairperson Najam Sethi said. They will not play in Lahore but in Karachi.

He will join a team that made a deep playoff run last season and a roster that includes running back Leonard Fournette. The Pro Bowl defensive tackle has agreed to a one-year deal, just one day before becoming an unrestricted free agent.

"The PSL trophy will be taken directly from Dubai to Karachi, where final will be held at a jam-packed stadium".

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 is part of our agreement with the West Indies board. But the Board had no other option as the Sindh government had requested PCB to not have a match on April 4, when the province will be observing the 39th death anniversary of Zulfiqar Bhutto, who was the founder of the Pakistan People's Party, Sindh's ruling party.
