TL;DR: Karachi to host Windies for T20I series

TL;DR: Karachi to host Windies for T20I series

Earlier, Lahore was selected as the venue of the West Indies matches but later Karachi was declared safe by worldwide security experts which is why all the three T20Is will be played in Karachi.

As part of its efforts to return top-level cricket to the country, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has announced that Karachi will host a Twenty20 worldwide series against the West Indies next month, as well as the final of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) T20 competition at the end of March.

The Pakistan Cricket Board said Monday that the West Indies will tour Pakistan early next month to play a three-match Twenty20 global series in the southern port city of Karachi.

The ill-fated tour's second match saw the islanders targeted in a terrorist attack, following which worldwide teams opted against visiting Pakistan, forcing the PCB to organise its home series in UAE. There has been a slow trickle of global teams returning to Pakistan since 2015, with Zimbabwe, a World XI, and most recently Sri Lanka making short visits for limited-overs games, but all of them were confined to the Gadaffi Stadium in Lahore.

Sethi also had a message for those doubting that the Pakistan Super League 2018 final will be held in Karachi.

Franklin Resources Inc. boosted its stake in shares of Anadarko Petroleum by 13.1% during the fourth quarter. Credit Suisse maintained Anadarko Petroleum Corporation (NYSE:APC) on Tuesday, January 23 with "Buy" rating.

Najam Sethi, chairman of the PCB, also announced that he was in talks with West Indies Cricket for a Twenty20 tri-series in the US. They will not play in Lahore but in Karachi.

"This is how we intend to bring Karachi back on map of cricket", he added.

In view of the increasing demand of tickets for the PSL final, the cricket board has turned two general enclosures of National Stadium into VIP Enclosures. "Karachi people should welcome this". "Now it is Karachi's turn to rise and shine with PSL3 Final and WI", Sethi wrote in a separate tweet. The West Indies series takes place over 1st, 2nd and 4th April.

Pakistan and West Indies will play T20Is on three consecutive days after Pakistan Cricket Board has rescheduled the series itinerary on the request of Sindh Government. "The details about the venues, dates, financial model will be discussed later but in principle it has decided that three countries will play in the U.S.".
