West Indies to tour Pakistan for T20 series in November
PCB chairman Najam Sethi claimed that the country has successfully tackled the menace of terrorism, which he felt will help in bringing in more international teams to play in Pakistan.
Sethi said the World XI will tour Pakistan every year for the next two years.
World XI play hosts Pakistan in a three-match T20I series.
Pakistan defeated the World XI in the first game by 20 runs.
Hours after Pakistan defeated the World XI in the first game by 20 runs at the Gaddafi Stadium here, marking the revival of international cricket in the country, an elated Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Najam Sethi said the World XI will tour Pakistan every year for the next two years also.
“The World XI series is now planned for every year for three years.
This is the first of the three series and there will be two more in the next years,” Sethi was quoted as saying by The Guardian newspaper.
“Once this (World XI tour) is done, the Sri Lankans have committed to play one or two matches in Lahore next month and then the West Indies have committed to me that they will come for three matches in November.
“If there is no untoward incident that mars any of these events then I’d imagine by next year at least one or two big teams will come to Pakistan,” he hoped.
