West Indies and Pakistan are going to meet in the T20 series soon. Both the teams were to play 5 matches in the series, but suddenly one match has been reduced. Now Windies and Pakistan will play 4 matches in the T20 series. Cricket West Indies (CWI) and Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) have announced this. Earlier the series was to start from July 27, whose date has been changed to July 28. The second match will be held on 31 July, the third on 1 August and the fourth and last match on 3 August. At the same time, Test two Tests will be played from August 12 and 20.

Because of this, one T20 match was reduced

Let us tell you that the change in the T20 series of West Indies and Pakistan has happened due to the corona case coming up in the second ODI against Australia. In fact, the second match of the three-match ODI series between West Indies and Australia had to be postponed after a staff attached to the host team was found to be Corona positive. This ODI was to be held on Thursday but was played on Saturday. In such a situation, the third and last ODI to be held on 24 July was rescheduled, which will be on 26 July. Due to this, a match of the West Indies-Pakistan series was done.  

What CWI said on the change

CWI President Ricky Skerritt said in a statement that Cricket West Indies, in association with the PCB, looked into various aspects. We jointly agree that the best solution in the current circumstances is to cancel the first T20 and play the four-match T20 series. Now the series will start from Wednesday and there will be no change in the schedule of the rest of the tour. We would like to express our gratitude to PCB Chairman Ehsan Mani and CEO Wasim Khan and the Pakistan team for understanding the situation and agreeing to the changed schedule.
