West Indies are all set to host Pakistan for 2 Tests and five T20I matches starting on 27 July. WI vs PAK series will begin with the five T20I games followed by the two Test matches starting from 12 August.
West Indies have included several T20 veterans like Chris Gayle, Dwayne Bravo, Andre Russell, Fidel Edwards and Lendl Simmons with the main focus on this year’s T20 World Cup. In a busy upcoming summer, West Indies are scheduled to host the trio of South Africa, Australia and Pakistan. On the other hand, Pakistan have handed maiden call-up to Azam Khan in their T20I squad while all-rounder Imad Wasim is also included in the side.
“We have remained consistent in our selection and kept the same core of cricketers who have been in the set-up for a while. This is an extremely important and critical tour for Pakistan as we will be playing the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League ODIs against England as well as the T20Is against England and the West Indies as part of our preparations for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup. The Jamaica Test will count towards the ICC World Test Championship,” said PCB chief selector Muhammad Wasim.
