West Indies are willing to play in Pakistan says PCB
Lahore, Pakistan: The West Indies are willing to play two Twenty20 matches in Pakistan next March once adequate security could be guaranteed, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) executive committe chairman Najam Sethi told a press conference in Lahore he was in touch with the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) and the governing body for cricket in the Caribbean was keen on the move.
“West Indies have asked to make satisfactory security for the team. We give a proposal to the WICB that after West Indies tour against England on March 9, they can visit Pakistan between March 11 to15”, Sethi said.
He added that in return the PCB will give the green to the West Indies for Pakistan to play two Twenty20 Internationals in Florida at the end of March.
The West Indies recently played a full series of three Twenty20 Internationals, three One Day Internationals and three Tests against Pakistan in the United Arab Emirates. The PCB had requested the limited over games be played in Pakistan but the request was rejected by the WICB.
No major Test playing country has toured Pakistan since 2009 when a bus carrying the Pakistan team was attacked by milliants. Several players were injured and policemen killed.
