    Interesting to see Bangladesh as the third team for the tri-series.

    I do hope it will consist of ODIs rather than T20Is as the World Cup will be just a few months away but that's probably too much to ask for!

    Read the tweet carefully bro..........

    In any case, it's a yakk idea - gradually PCB has decided to ruin it's cricket by prioritizing T20 for their National team and unfortunately, we are getting in to that trap as well. Whatever little, we moved out of Dhaka League, seems to be being dragged into frying pan from boiling water.

    Don't think BCB has much to complain about. We were already scheduled to play WI in the US at that time. Its up to the WI and PCB to agree if they want to make it a tri series. BCB is allowing PAK players in BPL and vice versa so its not that big a deal.

    A home series, even T20, against a proper ICC team is the next logical step after the All Stars games.

    Next year after that, you try to organise some ODI's & include a new venue.

    Steps like that 1 year at a time could see international cricket regularly (all formats) in 5 years. I say regularly & not "normalised" because I still think each series will be seen as a kind of "trial" but that's the way to start.

    Only way you will get to normalised in 10 years.

    They'll book in any case. In fact format hardly ever mattered for PAK selection - for Inzi, it's almost Latin ..... otherwise no selector, under mental sanity won't pick Azhar & Imam as ODI opener.

    T20 is the easiest format where you can bang around (That Florida ground is probably a Football size ground - last time IND failed by 1 run, chasing 240 in 20 overs), and most people won't notice (read, PCB's selectors & PTv's experts will sell it easily) what it means a 48 ball 58 in a T20 against BD on a 200+ ground - MoHa/Malik even Azhar is quite capable of that.

    There is no half measures - obsolete things must be dumped mercilessly. It was corruption of the highest order to send MoHa at 4 to NZ without his chucking and Malik at 5 with his Bradmanish average (albeit one decimal displaced), add to that Azhar & Imam - someone should have been sacked (Since he lacked self respect to resign after 5-0 and it wasn't a "tight" 5-0). These guys are not leaving with respect intact unless dumped - they had the chance to do so after 19th June '17. These days, without Internationals, still you can earn decent from PLs & SLs.

    Windies could play T20 series in Houston — report

    LAHORE, Pakistan (CMC) — West Indies are set to play a Twenty20 International in the American city of Houston for the first time later this year, as part of a Tri-Nations Series involving Pakistan and Bangladesh.

    An unnamed senior Pakistan Cricket Board official told the Indian Express newspaper the series, scheduled for August, had been finalised following discussions between PCB chairman Najam Sethi and Cricket West Indies president, Dave Cameron, on the sidelines of the recent International Cricket Council meeting in Dubai.

    The series, which will also see matches also played in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, is a reciprocal tour to follow on from the highly anticipated three-match tour carded for March/April when Pakistan are expected to host the Caribbean side.

    “It (US series) is an arrangement for this year and we will see how things pan out later on,” the official was quoted as saying.

    So far, every T20 International to be played on United States soil has been staged at the Central Broward Regional Park Stadium in Fort Lauderdale, with the most recent action being a two-match series between the Windies and India two years ago.

    The proposal for a match to be hosted in the southern United States represents a further incursion into the lucrative North American market.

    Only last year, the PCB had announced a five-year agreement that would have seen the Windies tour Pakistan annually for a three-match T20 series, with Pakistan contesting reciprocal series in the US, involving the Caribbean unit.

    But the PCB said this year they had been forced to scrap the agreement because it would not have been financially viable.

    Meanwhile, the PCB have finalised the dates for the upcoming Windies tour, with matches scheduled for March 29 and 31, and April 1.

    “Venues will be decided later but initial plan is to hold them in Lahore,” the PCB official informed.

    The PCB are hoping to have international tours of Pakistan resume, following an eight-year break after the Sri Lanka team bus was attacked by militants on its way to the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore back in 2009.

    Following a three-match Independence Cup series involving a World XI last September in Lahore, the ICC praised Pakistan for its handling of security, noting that the success of the event sent a positive message to the international community about safety in the country.

    Yeah lots of Pakistanis in Houston should be good in regards to crowds. This needs to be marketed really well though.

    ‘Always been supportive of Pakistan cricket’ – Johnny Grave

    Johnny Grave, Cricket West Indies (CWI) chief executive, says the West Indies’ upcoming tour of Pakistan, for a three-match Twenty20 International series, will help aid the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) in their efforts to ensure regular international cricket at home.

    Earlier this month, Najam Sethi, the PCB chairman, made the details of the tour official and while the fact that the tour itself would take place wasn’t too surprising – international cricket has started to return to Pakistan in recent times – what was noteworthy was the change in venue.

    Instead of Lahore, which had been the venue for all international cricket in Pakistan over the last few years, the National Stadium in Karachi will host the three matches.

    On April 1, when Pakistan and West Indies step out on to the field, it will be the first international match played in Karachi since 2009.

    It is another step towards something resembling normalcy for fans of the sport in Pakistan. They have been largely starved of live top-level cricket since the attack on the touring Sri Lankans’ bus in 2009 led to international cricket ceasing to be played in the country.

    “All players understand the impact that not playing at home has had on cricket in Pakistan,” says Grave. “Several of our players took part in the World XI and Pakistan Super League matches in Pakistan, and they are supportive.”

    In 2015, Zimbabwe played a brief limited-overs series in Lahore over the course of 10 days. Thereafter, the final of the PSL was staged at the Gadaffi Stadium in Lahore in 2017, and Karachi held the last few matches of the 2018 edition earlier this week. In September 2017, a World XI side, comprising the likes of Faf du Plessis, Hashim Amla, George Bailey, Thisara Perera and Darren Sammy, played a three-match T20 series in Lahore too. And in October, crucially, Sri Lanka returned to Pakistan, eight years after that attack, to play the last T20I of their three-match series in Lahore.

    There is, Grave says, a mutual support system among the cricket boards to help each other out. “The World XI games were a clear indication from the PCB that it was manageable for international cricket to return to Pakistan,” he says. “All boards want to be playing at home, on home soil, in front of the home fans. Pakistan were being forced to play away (in the UAE) for so long that everyone in world cricket was supportive of cricket returning to Pakistan.

    “We weren’t scheduled to play them for a few years. But they approached us, and proposed the No.1 T20I side play the reigning World T20 champions in a three-match series in Pakistan. We’ve always been very supportive of Pakistan cricket and we wanted to do our best to support them. As soon as we received the security go-ahead, we approached WIPA (West Indies Players Association) and the players to get their support.”

    CWI’s association with Pakistan isn’t restricted to on-field matters. Grave revealed some of the other proposals in the pipeline. “We won’t make short-term money out of the series but we are working on a joint strategy with Pakistan to support Canada and US cricket and obviously to help bring cricket back to Pakistan,” he says. “We have started to explore with PCB opportunities to partner together in economic terms.

    “We are looking at ways to increase resources, and to tap into the huge expat communities for both of us is in Canada and the USA. We’re trying to see how we can support their development, take top-level international cricket there, and engage these expat communities.”

    Grave also stresses the competitive spirit in which the matches will be played. “These are not exhibition games,” he says. “They are important, full internationals, and they will showcase the next generation of Windies stars. We’ll be looking to climb up the rankings (with victory in the series) and build our white-ball team ahead of World T20 2020.”

    As regards any West Indies players who choose not to travel, Grave says, “We fully accept that position and it will not be held against them."

    As for matters of on-field performance, Grave is confident that despite West Indies having had to qualify for the Cricket World Cup at the CWC Qualifier due to their low ranking, that experience should stand them in good stead going forward.

    “We can now start to plan and do everything we can to try and win our third World Cup. The challenge is to be consistent. In knock-out cricket under intense pressure anyone can beat anyone. It’s just about handling the pressure.

    “There was relief at our qualification – we were under real pressure, the schedule was tough, teams were playing seven games pretty much back-to-back. it was a real physical and mental test.”

    He also lauded the overall standard of the competition. “The quality of the games was high,” he said. “Irrespective of fact that we were favourites, we were playing against very good sides. There were four Full Members and only two slots available, the challenge was to cope with the pressure and conditions. We lost to Afghanistan but beat everyone else. Other Full Members would have found it challenging too.”

    Grave also feels the change in format going into this series should benefit West Indies. “We are naturally suited to T20 with our style of white ball cricket,” he says. “Ours is a power game, hitting boundaries. We are always confident in T20.”
