Pakistan to host Windies for next five years from 2018

MORE CRICKET TO COME Najam Sethi says five-year contract with West Indies proves that return of international teams to Pakistan is not just based on one-time affairs

The first series is going to be held in Pakistan whereas, the next series will be played in the USA.

Najam Sethi, chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board, has said that the board is determined to ensure Karachi gets to host the final of the third edition of the Pakistan Super League, in March 2018.

Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has confirmed that West Indies will play a three-match Twenty20 global series against Pakistan in Lahore in March next year.

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

Air traffic controller charged with having weapon of mass destruction in Charlotte
WNCN reports that the FAA has suspended Dandan's access to the airport while the FAA and the FBI are investigating the case. The investigation led police to another man, Derrick Fells, 39, who, they say, created the device.

The tour was initially supposed to happen in November this year but has had to be rescheduled due to unforeseen circumstances.

Pakistan had hoped three-match series would further help them revive global cricket in their country, where foreign teams have been refusing to tour over security fears for eight years. We hope it will be one of the best series in Pakistan for both teams. Thereafter, Sri Lanka played third T20 in their three match series in Lahore as well.

"Many countries have contacted us for but we are reluctant to talk to any of them at the moment because our calendar is quite packed at the moment", Sethi added.

"The weather conditions were not conducive so we did not take any risk and next year a full strength West Indies team will play three Twenty20 matches on March 29, 31 and April 1", said Sethi at a press conference. They think holding a series in the United States is financially more feasible.
