West Indies to play three T20 matches in Karachi: Najam Sethi
March 12, 2018

LAHORE: Pakistan Cricket Board Chairman Najam Sethi has announced that West Indies would play three T20 matches in Karachi in first week of April.

In a tweet, Najam Sethi said, “Good news! West Indies have agreed to play 3 T20 matches in KARACHI on 1, 2 and 4th April.”

Karachi will also host the final of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) on March 25.

“Lahore had Zimbabwe, PSL2 Final, ICC XI and Sri Lanka. Now it is Karachi’s turn to rise and shine with PSL3 Final and WI,” Sethi said in another tweet.

Pakistan has remained largely starved of international cricket since the 2009 attacks on a bus carrying Sri Lankan cricketers in Lahore, wounding six players and a British coach and killing eight Pakistanis.

The incident forced Pakistan to play nearly all of their home matches in the United Arab Emirates. Pakistan have since hosted Zimbabwe, a World XI, and a Sri Lanka team for limited overs matches, all at Lahore’s Gaddafi Stadium.
