Islamabad, 7 June 2022 (TDI): The West Indies cricket team has arrived in Pakistan for three One-Day International (ODI) matches.

The matches were originally scheduled for December 2021 but were postponed after many instances of COVID-19 were identified among the West Indies team and support staff.

According to a video provided by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), the West Indian team arrived at Multan to play three ICC World Cup Super League One-Day International matches against the Green Shirts.

Nicholas Pooran, the West Indies’ recently chosen captain, will lead the team in his second international series. The two-time winners of the 50-overs World Cup just wrapped up a 3-0 series victory in the Netherlands.

Pakistan, on the other hand, will begin training today after winning their last ODI series against the great Australians 2-1 at home.

Pakistan is presently ranked tenth in the world, with six victories out of a possible twelve. The West Indies, on the other hand, is ranked fourth in the world after winning eight of their first 18 matches.

Revival of International Cricket in Pakistan

Meanwhile, Pakistan is getting ready to reintroduce international cricket. The Multan International Cricket Stadium in Multan, Pakistan, will host all of the matches.

One of the recent highlights of Pakistan’s infrastructure to once again host international cricket was Australia’s recent visit to the country. Following a one-day international series against the Netherlands, the Windies will embark on this trip.

Najam Sethi, the former Chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), and Rameez Raja the current Chairman of PCB have worked tirelessly to reintroduce international cricket to Pakistan, with the assistance of the government and law enforcement agencies in particular.

The Pakistani team can now anticipate more international games at home, which they hope will occur shortly.
