Islamabad:India have agreed to host the revived Afro-Asia Cup in Mohali next June, a Pakistan cricket board (PCB) official said today.

''India will host the three-match series on June 6, 8 and 10 between the Asian X1 and African X1,'' PCB director of operations Saleem Altaf told Reuters.

The Afro-Asia Cup was launched two years ago but not held after that because of the hectic international calendar. It has now been revived and the 2008 event will be held in Kenya.

Altaf also confirmed the West Indies would tour Pakistan from Nov. 6 this year, playing three Tests in Karachi, Lahore and Multan and five One-day internationals in Rawalpindi, Faisalabad, Lahore, Multan and Karachi.
