A BATTING WITH BIMAL BREAKING REPORT: Pakistan tour of West Indies to be split

Pakistan last toured the West Indies in 2011

Pakistan’s tour of the West Indies is set to be split into two after it was agreed that the two nations would play two Tests against each other in July, while the limited overs series has been postponed to a later date, which is still yet to be confirmed.

Pakistan were originally scheduled to play two Tests, five ODIs and two Twenty20 Internationals in the Caribbean between June and July.

The tour had to be split due to the fact that the West Indies are set to host Sri Lanka and India for an ODI tri-series straight after the conclusion of the Champions Trophy in England, while Pakistan are also looking to host India for a full series in August.

In order for this to be accomplished, the tour had to be split and both the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) have agreed to reschedule the limited overs part of the tour.

The West Indies also scrapped their two-Test series against Sri Lanka in May in order to allow their players to participate in the Indian Premier League (IPL), which begins on April 3.

Pakistan last toured the Caribbean in 2011 for two Tests, five ODIs and a one-off Twenty20 International.
