Islamabad:Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman Najam Sethi announced that all three T20 matches of the upcoming West Indies' tour will be held at National Stadium Karachi.

The West Indies' agreement to play the series in Karachi is another move in the right direction for worldwide cricket returning to Pakistan.

"The West Indies will play three T20 matches with Pakistan in National Stadium Karachi on 1st, 2nd and 3rd April 2018", a PCB media release said. It could be the first time that a three-match global series will be played without a single rest day in between. "The reason was that I was in discussion and was working with the West Indies Cricket Board day and night to come to a conclusion".
