Karachi set to host Pakistan-West Indies T20Is

PCB Chairman Najam Sethi proudly made the announcement that West Indies will tour Pakistan for a three-match T20I series, scheduled to take place from April 1 to April 4 this year.

Earlier, Lahore was announced as the venue of the West Indies matches but the PCB was encouraged to host the matches outside Lahore after Karachi was declared safe by global security experts last month.

Pakistan all-rounder Imad Wasim has been declared "stable" after the left-hander injued himself while playing for Karachi Kings against Lahore Qalandars during a Pakistan Super League match. Pakistan have played almost all their "home" matches in the UAE since then.

"This is how we intend to bring Karachi back on map of cricket", he added.

Sethi also announced he was in talks with West Indies Cricket for a Twenty20 tri-series in United States. The PSL final, and now three more games for Karachi as per routine.

An ICC security consultant will visit Karachi during the PSL final and Sethi said the PCB has contracted the same consultant for the West Indies series.

"We have a separate agreement with the West Indies in which we are exploring a tri-lateral series including Pakistan, West Indies and one other country, which will be played in the United States of America over next five years".
