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

MORE CRICKET TO COME Najam Sethi says five-year contract with West Indies proves that return of international teams to Pakistan is not just based on one-time affairs

From the deep of heart we welcome the West Indies cricket team in our country.

West Indies and Pakistan cricket boards have confirmed that the former will play three T20 games in the sub-continent region next year with all three games to be played in Lahore.

The regional team was expected to visit the Pakistan city of Lahore later this month, but saw the tour postponed after the region became enveloped in smog.

Instead, a five-year contract has been signed with the West Indies cricket board. The first series will be in Pakistan, and then we will go to America to play the [reciprocal] series.

Najam Sethi on Sunday said that the board is determined to host the third edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) final in Karachi in March next year.

They'll join Nigeria, Egypt and Senegal as the continent's five representatives at next year's tournament in Russian Federation . The Tunisians held on for the draw, though, and it turned out to be a precious point.


Pakistan had hoped three-match series would further help them revive worldwide cricket in their country, where foreign teams have been refusing to tour over security fears for eight years. This is not a one-off series, we have tied up with the Windies for a period of five years.

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

There is certain news around about a T20 series between Pakistan and West Indies in November. The third participant is yet to be finalised.

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. Zimbabwe ended that in 2013 but most recently a number of high profile players toured the region for World XI against Pakistan.

The matches are to take place on March 29th, 31st and April 1st.
