Pakistan cricket team to have first ever series in America

KARACHI: Pakistan likely to play a first ever proposed triangular series in the United States in their busy schedule.

Najam Sethi, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman has said that because of prior commitments, the Board is finding it tough to line up the series that will also feature West Indies and another Test-playing nation.

“We have a very busy schedule this year but it is important for us to fit in the proposed tri-series in the US,” he said.

By featuring in the proposed triangular planned by Cricket West Indies (CWI), PCB will be returning a big favour given by the West Indians.

Despite security concerns, the West Indies agreed to send their team to Pakistan to play a three-match Twenty20 International series which got underway at Karachi’s National Stadium on Sunday.

In return, Pakistan have agreed to play in the proposed three-nation tournament in the United States later this year. The tournament will include Pakistan, West Indies and either Sri Lanka or Bangladesh.
