Karachi to host West Indies T20I series in April, confirms Sethi”

West Indies are set to become the latest worldwide team to tour Pakistan.

All three matches of West Indies T20 series will be held in Karachi, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman Najam Sethi announced at Dubai International Cricket Stadium on March 11.

Not only will this be the first Full Member series Pakistan have hosted since Zimbabwe visited the country in May 2015, but it is also the first time that an worldwide match will be held in Karachi since Sri Lanka visited Pakistan in 2009. Pakistan have played almost all their "home" matches in the UAE since then. "Many people were asking if the stadium will be renovated on time and I have been ensuring them that it will be done", Sethi said.

Sethi also repeated his previous statement saying that debates over doubts on PSL final in Karachi should be put to an end.

Speaking to media in Dubai, Sethi stated that he was working day and night to reach this agreement and Cricket West Indies have just confirmed to play these matches. They will not play in Lahore but in Karachi.

"The trophy of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) will be brought to Karachi and ticket sale will start soon", said Najam Sethi.

An ICC security consultant will visit Karachi during the PSL final and Sethi said the PCB has contracted the same consultant for the West Indies series. "Their expert will stay back for seven days and conduct the security for West Indies series". This will be a one-off series, since, as I told you before, it will be a loss-making enterprise.

The West Indies' agreement to play the series in Karachi is another move in the right direction for worldwide cricket returning to Pakistan. "The details about the venues, dates, financial model will be discussed later but in principle it has decided that three countries will play in the United States of America".
