Karachi set to host Pakistan-West Indies T20Is

Moin Khan unhappy with overseas players refusing to travel to Pakistan for PSL playoffs

SHARJAH: Pakistan's cricket authorities were on Tuesday forced to change the itinerary of their eagerly-awaited Twenty20 worldwide series against the visiting West Indies because of the death anniversary of former Prime Minister Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto.

Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Najam Sethi said the West Indies have confirmed the series.

Lahore Qalandars stunned Karachi Kings in a super over in the 24th match of the Pakistan Super League's third edition at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.

West Indies and Pakistan have signed an agreement to play a T20I series every year for the next 5 years. There has been a slow trickle of global teams returning to Pakistan since 2015, with Zimbabwe, a World XI, and most recently Sri Lanka making short visits for limited-overs games, but all of them were confined to the Gadaffi Stadium in Lahore. They will not play in Lahore but in Karachi.
