West Indies will play three ODIs and three T20Is in Pakistan between December 13 and 22, it was confirmed on Thursday (November 4).
West Indies will become the first side to tour Pakistan since February this year. New Zealand, who travelled to Pakistan, pulled out of their three ODI and five T20Is tour on the morning of the game on September 17 because of security concerns while England too cancelled their two-match T20I series.
“After missing out on home internationals in September and October, the West Indies tour will formally kick-off of an exciting and entertaining season of men’s international cricket in Pakistan with HBL Pakistan Super League 2022 and Australia’s first full series to follow,” Pakistan Cricket Board chairman Ramiz Raja said.
“The West Indies have always remained one of Pakistan cricket fans’ favourite sides. I am hopeful that the NCOC will support this series by allowing maximum crowds so that the fans can watch live in action their favourite players and back both the sides.”
West Indies will arrive on December 9 and will have three days to acclimatise before the opening T20I while the ODI series, part of the ICC Super League, will start on December 18.
