Since the attack on the Sri Lankan team bus in 2009 worldwide cricket in Pakistan was suspended but recently a limited over series with Zimbabwe, the Pakistan Super League final, Twenty20 series with a World XI were all held in Lahore.

Sethi further mentioned that a bilateral series would be played between the two teams in Pakistan and later a third team would be joining them in the United States.

It should be mentioned here that Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of International Cricket Council (ICC) visited Lahore in September for World XI tour the same month and hailed efforts of the board to revive international cricket in terror-stricken Pakistan.

He added: "There were talks that the series should be played in November, but the weather conditions were not good, so we didn't take any risk".

"We have an agreement with West Indies for the next five years", PCB chairman Najam Sethi said in comments published by Dawn newspaper.


"WICB will send its full-strength national team in 2018 and will play three T20Is [on] March 29, 31 and April 1". This is not a one-off series, we have tied up with the Windies for a period of five years.

"There has been a lot of speculation regarding Pakistan and West Indies series".

Pakistan had largely been shunned by worldwide teams for the past eight years due to security concerns following an attack by gunmen on the bus carrying the Sri Lankan team in 2009. Thereafter, Sri Lanka played third T20 in their three match series in Lahore as well.

Sethi said the agreement with West Indies showed a confidence by worldwide sides in touring Pakistan again.
