Karachi: Windies will tour Pakistan for three T20 Internationals in March and April this year, the PCB confirmed during the ICC meetings in Dubai.

A senior official of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) told PTI that the series was finalised after meetings between PCB chairman Najam Sethi and his Cricket West Indies (CWI) counterpart Dave Cameron on the sidelines of the ICC board meetings in Dubai.

"The matches will be played on 29th and 31st of March and 1st April.

"Venues will be decided later but initial plan is to hold them in Lahore," he said.

He said in return Pakistan has agreed to take part in a tri-series in Florida and Houston in August involving Windies and Bangladesh.

"It is an arrangement for this year and we will see how things pan out later on," he said.

Sethi had initially announced a five-year agreement between the two boards which required Windies to tour Pakistan every year for three T20 games and in return Pakistan taking part in events in North America.

But the arrangement was later withdrawn without any explanation.

"Sethi met with Cameron in Dubai and the matter was finalised," another official said.
