Islamabad:Enigmatic Pakistan paceman Shoaib Akhtar is unlikely to be available for the West Indies tour starting next month as Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Shahryar Muhammad Khan is not in favour of rocking the winning combination.

Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of inaugurating the School Cricket Tournament at the Punjab Cricket Ground here, the PCB chief said he was all for continuity and added no wholesale changes would be made.

"Though the final decision will be taken by the selection committee in this regard but I think we should not make any change in the team that won laurels in India."

Pakistan would leave for West Indies in early May where they play two Tests and three One-day internationals.
