West Indies yesterday confirmed their tour to Pakistan and it is a massive development with regard to the return of international cricket in the country.
West Indies All Set To Tour Pakistan
The Windies have agreed to tour Pakistan for the first time after the year 2018. It is a massive development as New Zealand and England had withdrawn from their tours to the country earlier owing to different reasons. Refusal from what was termed as the “Western Block” by chairman PCB, Ramiz Raja dented severely Pakistan’s cause of reviving international cricket. Hence, the West Indies tour if successful is likely to restore confidence of other cricket playing nations and open doors for Australia’s tour to the country next year.
Ramiz Raja Announces An “Exciting” Season
While commenting following the development Ramiz said, “After missing out on home internationals in September and October, the West Indies tour will formally kick-off of an exciting and entertaining season of men’s international cricket in Pakistan with HBL Pakistan Super League 2022 and Australia’s first full series to follow.
“The West Indies have always remained one of Pakistan cricket fans’ favourite sides. I am hopeful that the NCOC will support this series by allowing maximum crowds so that the fans can watch live in action their favourite players and back both the sides.”
The Windies will travel to Pakistan in December for three T20s and ODIs and will play against the green shirts as per the following schedule.
