Pakistan to host Windies for three T20Is in March

PCB chairman also says teams will play each other regularly for five years in reciprocal arrangements

Windies have confirmed to play a three-match T20I series in Lahore in March next year, the Pakistan Cricket Board announced at a press conference on Saturday.

The tour was supposed to happen in November this year, but had to be rescheduled to next year. Najam Sethi, the PCB chairman, explained that logistics, weather and security challenges forced the three-match T20I series to be postponed.

Sethi added that the schedule for Windies' tour -- the three matches are to be played on March 29, 31 and April 1 -- has been mutually agreed, and also claimed both countries will play regularly for five years in reciprocal arrangements.
 
"There were talks to play the series in November, but due to unforeseen weather, we didn't take the risk," Sethi said in Lahore.

"From then onwards, they will keep coming to Pakistan for the next five years and we will reciprocate by playing in the USA. But the series we will play in the USA will be a tri-series with the third team to be decided later."

Since attacks on the Sri Lankan team bus in 2009 suspended international cricket in Pakistan, a limited over series with Zimbabwe, the Pakistan Super League final, Twenty20 series with a World XI were all held in Lahore. However Sri Lanka's T20I match in Lahore last month is considered as marking the end of cricketing isolation.
