Pakistan's tour of West Indies starts July 14
St. John's (Antigua): The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) has released the schedule for Pakistan’s tour of the Caribbean starting July 14.
The series will include five One Day Internationals and two Twenty20 Internationals.
Guyana will host the first two ODIs, followed by three ODIs at the Beausejour Cricket Grounds in St. Lucia.
The Arnos Vale Cricket Ground in St. Vincent will host the two Twenty20 Internationals July 27 and 28 to conclude the tour.
The series will also mark the return of international cricket to Guyana after a one year absence.
“This has been a bumper year for international cricket in the Caribbean. We have had a full series with West Indies and Zimbabwe and the Celkon Mobile Cup including India and Sri Lanka is about to commence,” said WICB corporate communications officer Imran Khan Thursday.
“The seven match series involving Pakistan will give fans, especially cricket starved fans in Guyana, more international cricket action to rally behind the West Indies team."
