CWI strikes five-year tour agreement with Pakistan

CWI strikes five-year tour agreement with Pakistan

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 U.S. on regular basis for the next five years.

Windies will face Pakistan in Lahore on March 29 and 31 and April 1 after the tour was postponed from its initial November schedule. The reciprocal series in United States of America in 2018 will be a tri-series, with the third participant yet to be finalized.

The tour was slated to take place in November this year, but it had to be rescheduled for next year.

"There has been a lot of speculation regarding Pakistan and West Indies series".

The match would have been the team's first return to the Asian country since the 2009 attack on the Sri Lanka tour bus caused it to be blacklisted as a venue.

In a press conference, PCB chairman said, "West Indies and Pakistan cricket board has signed an agreement to play a series of T20 matches each year for the next five years in Pakistan and in the U.S.", said Sethi.

The attack injured six Sri Lankan players and killed six security personnel and two civilians and Pakistan have since played nearly all of their "home" matches in the United Arab Emirates.

Pakistan hosted Zimbabwe for a limited over series in 2015 followed by staging of the final of the Pakistan Super League and Twenty20 series with a World XI - both this year.

Pakistan put off their three-match Twenty20 series with the West Indies scheduled later this month to March next year, citing weather conditions as the reason for postponement.

"These bilateral [series] will be a part of the FTP, since we've made this agreement involving the ICC".

"It was their wish".
