Pakistan to play 3 T20Is against West Indies in Karachi

TOO EXPENSIVE! With ticket prices starting from Rs1,000 for general stands and ending on Rs12,000 for the VIP enclosures the demand for the lowest price tickets would be high when PSL final is staged in Karachi on March 25

The Pakistan Cricket Board said Monday that the West Indies will tour Pakistan early next month to play a three-match Twenty20 worldwide series in the southern port city of Karachi. You can all afford to pay.

The PCB had been trying to convince foreign teams to restart global cricket back in Pakistan.

"Good news! West Indies have agreed to play three T20 matches in Karachi on 1st, 2nd and 4th April", wrote the PCB chief on Twitter, adding: "CM Sindh is fully supporting this PCB initiative". This will also mark another return of global cricket to the country.

Pakistan had been a no-go zone for worldwide teams since a 2009 terrorist attack on the Sri Lankan team bus, which killed eight people and left seven visiting players injured. The attack left six players inured and a British coach and eight Pakistanis were killed. However, 2017's final of the Pakistan Super League (PSL), three T20 internationals against a World XI and a T20 worldwide match against Sri Lanka helped convince the West Indies.

While the National Stadium is still being renovated, Sethi assured everyone that the construction work will be completed in time for the West Indies series and Pakistan Super League (PSL) final, which will take place on March 25.


PCB Chairman added, "Just some hours before they have confirmed that they will play three matches on April 1, 2 and 4th in National Stadium of Karachi", adding that "PCB was in efforts to bring cricket back in Karachi".

"The PSL final and three West Indies matches will be held in Karachi".

"Their expert will stay back for seven days and conduct the security for West Indies series".

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

"This will be a one-off series... it will be a loss-making enterprise".
