PCB hoping for full international series at home by 2020
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) want to host a full international series by 2020 after the West Indies recently toured the country to play three T20Is.
The 2016 World T20 champions played a three-match series in Karachi, the first time an international team played in the city since 2009 due to security problems.
The Asian country has found it difficult to convince teams to tour their country to play cricket since gunmen attacked a Sri Lanka team bus in 2009.
More hope has been given recently with Zimbabwe first touring in 2015 and then a World XI, led by Proteas skipper Faf du Plessis, played three T20 games in September last year.
PCB chairman Najam Sethi told AFP: “They are bearing positive results.
“We will host more PSL matches next year and by that time almost all the top international players from top cricketing nations will have played in Pakistan.
“Then we can convince their boards to send national teams for a full series to Pakistan in 2020.”
Pakistan easily won all three matches in the series against the Windies who had a weakened squad.
