  • PCB chairman assured that no stone is being left unturned to get the National Stadium in Karachi ready in time

"We have an agreement with West Indies for the next five years", PCB chairman Najam Sethi said in comments published by Dawn newspaper.

Sethi also confirmed that both PCB and the West Indies Cricket Board have signed a mutual agreement to play each other in Pakistan and in United States of America on regular basis for the next five years.

The tour was initially supposed to happen in November this year but has had to be rescheduled due to unforeseen circumstances.

West Indies team will tour Pakistan right after the third edition of Pakistan Super League. Worldwide cricket was suspended in Pakistan after terrorists attacks on the Sri Lankan team bus in Lahore in 2009, which killed eight people and injured several players.

"West Indies has confirmed that its full team will tour Pakistan next year to play three T20Is on March 29th, 31st, April 1st".

"These bilateral [series] will be a part of the FTP, since we've made this agreement involving the ICC". "So I am hopeful that this ends the whole speculation around cricket in Pakistan".

The two teams will then go to America for a trilateral affair which will include, Pakistan, West Indies and a third country, which has not been named yet.

The PCB is on a quest to have worldwide cricket returned to the country after several years, following an attack by militants on the Sri Lankan team bus back in 2009 which left several of the security forces dead.

The West Indies was due to visit Pakistan this month, but Sethi said heavy smog in Lahore made organization hard. Zimbabwe ended that in 2013 but most recently a number of high profile players toured the region for World XI against Pakistan. The matches would be played on 29March, 31 March and 1 April as Sethi informed.
