Windies to tour Pakistan early next year, says Sethi

Pakistan put off West Indies series to March

He added: "There were talks that the series should be played in November, but the weather conditions were not good, so we didn't take any risk".

The worldwide cricket came back to Pakistan after the series against World XI and a one-off match against Sri Lanka and now, the development goes ahead with the next series against West Indies in March 2018.

PCB Chairman Najam Sethi revealed the news at a press conference in Lahore, at which he also said Pakistan and Windies had agreed to play a series of T20 contests over the next five years, in Pakistan and the USA.

In a press conference, PCB chairman said, "West Indies and Pakistan cricket board has signed an agreement to play a series of T20 matches each year for the next five years in Pakistan and in the US", said Sethi.

Sethi further informed that the Caribbean team would visit Pakistan in March for the first series.




The chairman lauded PSL's role in promoting Pakistan cricket, saying that the league is Pakistan's answer to rest of the world as local cricket has already started to receive the fruits of the league.

In return, Pakistan and West Indies will play a series in United States of America in 2018 which will be a tri-series.

As per the agreement, the first series is to be held in Pakistan by the end of March 2018. The third participant is yet to be finalised.

The series, originally carded for late November, was aborted because of severe smog in Lahore and the unavailability of the leading West Indies players, but will now be played from March 29th to April 1, 2018.

Pakistan had largely been shunned by global teams for the past eight years due to security concerns following an attack by gunmen on the bus carrying the Sri Lankan team in 2009.
