West Indies to play three T20Is in Pakistan

Pakistan's cricket chief on Sunday confirmed three Twenty20 internationals with the West Indies in Karachi early next month, taking a giant step towards reviving global series amid improved security in the country.

West Indies are set to become the latest worldwide team to tour Pakistan.

These will be the first global matches in Karachi since the 2009 attacks on the Sri Lanka team bus in Lahore brought worldwide cricket in Pakistan to a virtual halt.

Pakistan has played virtually all its home series in the United Arab Emirates since then. "These bilateral (series) will be a part of the FTP, since we've made this agreement", PCB Chairman Najam Sethi said.

Sethi also announced he was in talks with West Indies Cricket for a Twenty20 tri-series in United States. "Karachi people should welcome this".

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. But the Board had no other option as the Sindh government had requested PCB to not have a match on April 4, when the province will be observing the 39th death anniversary of Zulfiqar Bhutto, who was the founder of the Pakistan People's Party, Sindh's ruling party.
