Pakistan will play Tests and T20Is in West Indies and United States in 2021

Pakistan cricket team is all set to face West Indies and United States in 2021.

The series will include 3 Tests and 3 T20Is, 2 of which will be played in Florida, USA. According to the Future Tours Programme laid out by the International Cricket Council for West Indies Cricket Board , Pakistan will visit the region in 2021, after the tours of India , and New Zealand and South Africa in 2020.

The West Indian cricketing governing body had agreed to host Pakistan in the States later 2018 – after West Indies toured Pakistan in April – however, it could not be materialized as it was not feasible to assign a slot outside of the FTP.

There were suggestions for a T20I series featuring Pakistan, India and the hosts, however, Lauderhill Stadium is not capable of hosting this many matches which is why the possibility was ruled out.

The Pakistan tour is scheduled in July-August 2021, however, the exact dates of the fixtures will be released when the arrangements are finalized by the WICB.

Pakistan hosted West Indies earlier in April 2018 playing a 3-match T20I series which Pakistan easily won by a thumping 3-0 margin.

The focus, however, is on the Cricket World Cup 2019, which is scheduled in England next year and all the teams are mulling over the best squads.
