An agreement has been signed between the Pakistan Cricket Board and Cricket West Indies (CWI).
The National Stadium in Karachi, which hasn't hosted any high-profile game since the ill-fated series against Sri Lanka in 2009, is now undergoing renovation work and questions were being raised about whether the venue can be prepped up in time for next edition's summit clash.
Earlier, the tour, which was due to take place in November, was postponed due to adverse weather conditions in Lahore.
"West Indies has confirmed that its full team will tour Pakistan next year to play three T20Is on March 29th, 31st, April 1st".
PCB Chairman Najam Sethi revealed the news at a press conference in Lahore, at which he also said Pakistan and Windies had agreed to play a series of T20 contests over the next five years, in Pakistan and the USA.
The series which is going to be played in the US, will be a triangular series, as the third team is not decided yet.
From the deep of heart we welcome the West Indies cricket team in our country.
The two cricket boards signed an agreement to also meet in T20s for the next five years. We hope it will be one of the best series in Pakistan for both teams. The series will comprise three T20 matches on March 29, 31, and April 1 and all the matches will be played in Lahore.
The PCB is on a quest to have global cricket returned to the country after several years, following an attack by militants on the Sri Lankan team bus back in 2009 which left several of the security forces dead. "And if you look at it, a three-nation tournament will attract a lot of interest", Sethi ended.
