  • Pakistan put off West Indies series to March

The tour was to take place in November of 2017 but was postponed because of weather conditions in the country that were not deemed appropriate.

Windies are set to play a three-match Twenty20 series in Pakistan in March and April next year, it was announced on Saturday.

"I wanted to reveal this [agreement] so that it would become clear that the visits to Pakistan by worldwide teams are not one-time affairs, and the five-year contract with West Indies explains our position", he said.

I can confirm now that both the boards have reached an agreement under which we will play a T20 series each year for the next five years in Pakistan and United States of America subject to availability of dates and venues which will be finalised later, an online sources quoted Sethi.

A third team will also be invited to U.S. for a tri-series, said Sethi.

Earlier, the tour was supposed to happen in November this year but due to unforeseen circumstances, the tour rescheduled to next year.

Filming for 2015's "The Force Awakens" also took place in the United Kingdom , but at Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire. Longcross Studios sits along the M3 Highway in Surrey, England, and so does the iconic Millenium Falcon .

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

"These bilateral [series] will be a part of the FTP, since we've made this agreement involving the ICC".

Following the terrorist attack on the Sri Lankan team in 2009 outside the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore, global teams didn't tour the country due to security fears. The series will comprise three T20 matches on March 29, 31, and April 1 and all the matches will be played in Lahore.

The news will be a big boost to the return of global cricket in Pakistan on a consistent basis after successfully hosted World XI in a three match series and Sri Lanka in a solitary T20I game earlier.

"It was their wish".
