West Indies will not cancel Pakistan tour: New Zealand and England had given a blow to the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) by canceling the Pakistan Tour. But good news has come out for the Pakistan team and its fans from West Indies. In fact, Cricket West Indies assured the Pakistan Cricket Board that it plans to honor its tour commitment in December this year. CWI chief executive Johnny Grave said the sport’s governing body in the Caribbean had no intention of not meeting tour obligations.
“We intend to meet our tour obligations. We have a very clear process that we go through with independent security experts, as we did in 2018,” Grave was quoted as saying by Trinidad News Day. Let us tell you that the West Indies toured Pakistan three years ago for three T20 matches in Karachi under the leadership of Jason Mohammed.
Grave said, “We will follow that process. The Board of Directors, WIPA (West Indies Players Association), as well as the players themselves, will review the plans and our reports, including independent security advice. Over the past few years, most of our operations in Pakistan Women’s and men’s players have played.”
He further said, “We will first go through the process with the PCB and security experts. We will have a meeting with the players to answer any questions and give them all the information. We are just at the beginning of that process.” Let us tell you that West Indies have to play three ODIs and three T20 matches in Pakistan.
