A PCB official revealed that Pakistan will be hosting Windies for a short 3-match T20 series in Lahore at the end of November this year.
Talking about the same, PCB chairman Najam Sethi said, “The agreement with the West Indies Cricket Board has been finalised and done and they have confirmed they will come to Lahore in November to play three T20 Internationals.”
None of the leading the Test playing countries has visited Pakistan due to security concerns since the terrorist attack on the Sri Lankan team in 2009. Sethi also asserted that the tour by the Windies is an important milestone as it would be a proper bilateral series in Pakistan. It will also open windows for the PCB to consult with other cricket playing nations.
PCB chairman said that with 5 South African cricketers playing in the World XI side currently in Lahore, the PCB would holds talks with Cricket South Africa to consider sending the full South African team for a short bilateral series as well.
