- KARACHI: The Pakistan Cricket Board has cancelled the proposed five-year agreement with West Indies for an annual T20 series because of financial issues.
- PCB chairman Najam Sethi, however, said the West Indies will tour Pakistan for three T20 matches scheduled for March this year.
- “The West Indies will come to play three T20 matches this year in March but the rest of the agreement was not cost-effective,” Sethi told reporters.
- As per the agreement signed between the two boards in October last year, the West Indies were scheduled to tour Pakistan every year for a T20 series and in return Pakistan are slated to travel to USA every year to take part in a tri-series with the Caribbeans and a third participating country.
- Sethi said a new MoU was being prepared with the West Indies Cricket Board but it will not have a bearing on the Caribbean team touring Pakistan in late March for the T20 series.
