West Indies to tour Pakistan for T20 series in November: PCB

Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Najam Sethi believes that the ongoing Independence Cup is the first step towards the resumption of worldwide cricket in the country, which would eventually also help in gradually improving PCB's finances in future contests. It is a long process and an early stepping stone.

Chief Executive, International Cricket Council, David Richardson has expressed the hope that Pakistan will be allocated an ICC approved event in a couple of years as security situation has improved a lot in the country.

Foreign teams have refused to tour Pakistan since a militant attack on the Sri Lankan team bus in Lahore in March 2009.

However, CWI said the three matches would be "subject to the safe conclusion of the ICC World XI team's three-match series in Lahore in September and affirmation of manageable security by the ICC sponsored worldwide security company overseeing the security arrangements of the World XI".

However, there will be no change in the plan and farewell ceremony will be held as planned. This time, ICC not only supported the tour but also gave funds for the visit of security experts to Lahore.


He pointed out that PCB was making solid efforts to build its capabilities for hosting global cricket events in a safe manner ensuring adequate security for the visiting teams.

Pakistan had piled up 183-4 after they were sent into bat by World Xi skipper Faf du Plessis. Apart from a three-match ODI series against Zimbabwe in 2015, the nation was starved of worldwide cricket since the dastardly terror strike on the touring Sri Lankans in 2009.

"We were a little sloppy today in the field", Ahmed said.

Pakistan will be aiming for to seize the historic Twenty20 worldwide series against the World XI in the intriguing finale on Friday.

Du Plessis was the next batsman to head back after the newly-appointed South African captain had scored just 5 runs. Already a T20 worldwide against Sri Lanka has been scheduled, subject to a security clearance and a three match T20 series against West Indies is also in the plans.
