Pakistan Cancels 5-year Agreement With West Indies for T20 Series

Written by Vipin Darwade

The Pakistan Cricket Board has cancelled the proposed five-year agreement with West Indies for an annual T20 series because of financial issues. PCB chairman Najam Sethi, however, said the West Indies will tour Pakistan for three T20 matches scheduled for March this year.

The agreement was announced at a press conference amidst much fanfare. Sethi said that after calculations were done it was found that the West Indies tour to Pakistan was not cost effective due to high production costs and players fees.

“The problem is that with three games we can’t get enough sponsors to cover our costs. So now we have decided on a one-off series this year followed by a tri-series in Florida later in the year,” Sethi said.

“The West Indies will come to play three T20 matches this year in March but the rest of the agreement was not cost effective,” he added.
