Karachi: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has rejected a request from West Indies to delay the start of their November tour by a few days and announced the itinerary.

The West Indies board wanted the tour postponed by a few days so that the team could participate in a high-profile Twenty20 match slated for November. 10 at home.

PCB director cricket operations, Saleem Altaf, said Pakistan could not accommodate the request as the Asian team had to leave for South Africa in final week of December and have scheduled a 10-day break for players following the series against West Indies.

According to the itinerary released by the PCB, West Indies will play three Tests and five One-day Internationals.

''The itinerary has been finalised and they will tour from Nov 7 to Dec 16,'' Altaf told Reuters.

West Indies last played in Pakistan in 1997 while their tour in 2000 was shifted to Sharjah for security reasons.
