West Indies Cricket Team, the 2 Time T20 World Cup Champions are all set to play a T20I Series in Pakistan. The Men in Maroon are going to be the joint hosts along with the USA for the next T20 World Cup 2024.

Pakistan Cricket Team has hosted a lot of nations in the last couple of years. The recent tours of Australia and England were quite successful for the board.

PCB Agrees To Postpone Series

PCB has agreed to postpone the 2023 T20I Series to the first quarter of 2024. This decision has been taken with the view to get more prepared for the 2024 ICC T20 World Cup. The upcoming T20I Series is not a part of the 2023-2027 ICC Future Tours Programme which is quite strange. In the next FTP, there’s already a lot of action, and having this series can prove to be hectic for players.

It would be interesting to see how these two teams fare after the conclusion of the T20 World Cup 2022. T20 World Cup 2024 is expected to be massive as 20 teams are going to participate in that tournament.
