Pakistan to play 5 ODIs against WI

St John's (Antigua), June 28: Pakistan will play five One Day Internationals and 2 Twenty20 Internationals against the West Indies in the Caribbean from July 14, West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) announced on Friday.

Guyana will host the first two ODIs, followed by three ODIs at the Beausejour Cricket Grounds in St Lucia. The Arnos Vale Cricket Ground in St Vincent will host the two Twenty20 Internationals on July 27th and 28th to conclude the tour.

The series will also mark the return of international cricket to Guyana after a one year absence.

"This has been a bumper year for international cricket in the Caribbean. We have had a full series with West Indies and Zimbabwe and the Celkon Mobile Cup including India and Sri Lanka is about to commence. The seven match series involving Pakistan will give fans, especially cricket starved fans in Guyana, more international cricket action to rally behind the West Indies team," WICB Corporate Communications Officer Imran Khan said.

"2013 has been a landmark year in West Indies cricket with four teams touring the Caribbean for the first time ever outside of world events. We look forward to the fans in Guyana, St Lucia and St Vincent turning out in their massive numbers to enjoy the cricketing action and the unparalleled cricketing atmosphere which many have copied but not matched," Khan added.
