CWI announce revised schedule for West Indies vs Pakistan

The two teams will play four T20Is instead of five, starting Wednesday (July 28)

West Indies have announced a revised schedule for the upcoming series against Pakistan. The two teams will play four T20 Internationals (T20I) instead of five, starting Wednesday (July 28) in Barbados. 

The action will then sift from Barbados to Guyana for the remainder of the series. The matches at the Guyana National Stadium will be played on July 31, August 1 and August 3. The change in the fixtures is due to the changes that were made to accommodate the second and third One-Day Internationals (ODI) between West Indies and Australia, which are part of the ODI Super League. 

After the conclusion of the T20Is, the two teams will clash in a couple of Tests at Sabina Park, Jamaica from August 12. The second Test will be played at the same venue from August 20. The Test series will be part of the World Test Championship (WTC) 2021-23 cycle.

“Together with the PCB, CWI have examined various scenarios, and we jointly agreed that the best solution in the present circumstances is to cancel the first T20I and play a four-match T20I series starting on Wednesday and keep the rest of the tour schedule unchanged," Ricky Skerritt, Cricket West Indies President said.

"We want to express our gratitude to the PCB Chairman, Ehsan Mani and CEO, Wasim Khan and the Pakistan team for their understanding in this situation and for agreeing to the revised match schedule. Both teams are in the final stages of preparing for the ICC T20 World Cup, so we anticipate an exciting and entertaining series of games as both teams compete for Osaka Presents PSO Carient T20 Cup,” he added.

The ongoing ODI series between the hosts and Australia will conclude on Monday (July 26). The three-match series is currently level at 1-1.
