Pakistan gets Windies boost with T20 series in Karachi

KHALID-Javed-Sammy

The ill-fated tour's second match saw the islanders targeted in a terrorist attack, following which worldwide teams opted against visiting Pakistan, forcing the PCB to organise its home series in UAE. West Indies have agreed to play 3 T20 matches in KARACHI on 1,2 and 4th April.

Lahore Qalandars kept their cool to register their second straight win and deny Karachi Kings in a thrilling Super Over triumph in the the Pakistan Super League on Sunday.

Karachi will also host the PSL final on March 25, while Lahore will host two play-off games on March 20 and 21.

"This is how we intend to bring Karachi back on map of cricket", he added.

International Cricket Council's security consultant Reg Dickason will visit Karachi during the PSL final to assess security arrangement for the Twenty20 series. "Karachi people should welcome this", said Sethi of Karachi, where the last global was a Test match against Sri Lanka in February 2009.

"I have been working day and night to conclude an agreement with West Indies which I have finalized", PCB chairperson Najam Sethi said.

Zimbabwe, a World XI and a Sri Lankan team have toured Pakistan over the last three years but all these short limited-overs series were organized at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore.
