  • West Indies team will arrive in Islamabad on June 5.
  • The ODIs will be played on June 8, 10 and 12 at Pindi Cricket Stadium.
  • West Indies have also agreed to play three T20Is in early 2023.

LAHORE: Rawalpindi is gearing up to host three one-day internationals (ODIs) against West Indies in June after the matches were postponed by the COVID-19 pandemic last year.

These one-dayers will be hosted in connection with the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League, according to a statement issued by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Monday.

It said that West Indies will arrive in Islamabad on June 5 for the ODIs that will be played on June 8, 10 and 12 at Pindi Cricket Stadium.

The ODIs were part of the West Indies tour of Pakistan in December 2021. However, with mutual consent, these were rescheduled after five COVID-19 cases were reported in the West Indies camp. 

“The West Indies have also agreed to play three T20Is in early 2023, the schedule of which will be announced in due course,” it said.

The ODIs are part of the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League. The top seven-placed sides from this event plus ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023 hosts India will qualify directly for the pinnacle 50-over competition, which will be staged next year in October and November.

Series schedule: 

June 8: 1st ODI, Rawalpindi.

June 10: 2nd ODI, Rawalpindi.

June 12: 3rd ODI, Rawalpindi.
