West Indies decides to play three T-20s in Lahore
MUMBAI: International cricket will once again return to the country as West Indies cricket team is scheduled to travel to Pakistan next month. This was confirmed by Dave Cameron, the president of the Cricket West Indies (CWI).
Speaking exclusively over telephone, he said, “our team will play three T-20 matches in Pakistan”.
“All the three matches are to be played in Lahore”, he further confirmed.
The PCB was also keen to host a tri-nation series in Florida, but the plan has been shelved for this year, it is also learnt.
Very few teams have traveled to Pakistan since the terror attacks on visiting Sri Lankan team in March 2009. And the PCB have staged their home series and the PSL matches in the UAE. The last international team to play in Pakistan was Sri Lanka in October last year.
Karachi has not been allotted any match, however, few PSL (Pakistan Super League) matches may be staged this year.
