West Indies commits to T20 series in Pakistan in March

West Indies to play 3-match T20 series in Pakistan, confirms Sethi

Sethi also confirmed that the proposed West Indies' tour to Pakistan has also been rescheduled to March next year, which will be first of the series agreed between the two boards.

Confirmation by the West Indies board has come in after a successful Sri Lanka visit to Pakistan for the third Twenty20Internationl of a series of three that Pakistan won.

The last worldwide match played at National Stadium was the first Test between Pakistan and Sri Lanka during the 2009 series, following which there was an armed attack on the Sri Lankan team bus, the incident that led to Pakistan being shunned by visiting teams.

Najam Sethi reiterated his and the Pakistan Cricket Board's commitment to hosting the final of the third edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) in 2018, saying that the board would leave no stone unturned to make it happen. The tour was to take place in November of 2017 but was postponed because of weather conditions in the country that were not deemed appropriate.

While West Indies will tour Pakistan, Sethi said it was CWI's (Cricket West Indies) decision not to have the return series in the Caribbean because of commercial reasons. This is not a one-off series, we have tied up with the Windies for a period of five years.

The PCB is on a quest to have global cricket returned to the country after several years, following an attack by militants on the Sri Lankan team bus back in 2009 which left several of the security forces dead.

The three games are slotted for March 29, 31 and 1st April.

Sethi said the agreement with West Indies showed a confidence by global sides in touring Pakistan again.
