PCB reschedules Pak-WI T20I series on request of Sindh govt

Pakistan had been a no-go zone for global teams since a 2009 terrorist attack on the Sri Lankan team bus which killed eight people and left seven visiting players injured. Pakistan have played almost all their "home" matches in the UAE since then. "Lahore had Zimbabwe, PSL2 Final, ICC XI and Sri Lanka". It could be the first time that a three-match global series will be played without a single rest day in between.

"It's a good news that West Indies have confirmed three Twenty20 internationals to be played in Karachi on April 1, 2 and 4", Sethi told media in Dubai on the sidelines of the ongoing third edition of the PSL. They will not play in Lahore but in Karachi. "The idea wasn't to make money, it was to bring cricket back, so this is a step in that direction".

The matches, which were initially scheduled to be played in Lahore, will now be carried out in Karachi. "Karachi people should welcome this". But talking about security perspective Najam Sethi said that "They will stay for another week after PSL final and work for the security of West Indies series,". This is part of our agreement with the West Indies board.

"This will be a one-off series... it will be a loss-making enterprise".

Pakistan and West Indies will play T20Is on three consecutive days after Pakistan Cricket Board has rescheduled the series itinerary on the request of Sindh Government. "The details about the venues, dates and financial model will be discussed later but in principle it has decided that three countries will play in the US".

Sethi also announced he was in talks with West Indies Cricket for a Twenty20 tri-series in United States.
