Pakistan to host West Indies in T20s & ODIs next month

·1-min read

ISLAMABAD (AP) — Karachi will stage limited-overs series between Pakistan and the West Indies next month.

A three-match Twenty20 series will be played on Dec. 13, 14 and 16 and followed by three one-day internationals on Dec. 18, 20 and 22.

It will be the West Indies' first tour of Pakistan since April 2018 when it played three T20s.

The ODIs will be part of Pakistan’s fourth series in the World Cup Super League, which will see the top seven sides and the event host India qualify directly for the Cricket World Cup in 2023.

Just before the ongoing T20 World Cup, New Zealand abandoned its limited-overs tour of Pakistan due to unexplained security concerns, while England also pulled out citing player welfare concerns.

Pakistan Cricket Board chairman Ramiz Raja said on Thursday he hoped the government will allow maximum crowds at the National Stadium despite the pandemic, and the tour will pave the way for Australia's tour to Pakistan early next year.
