West Indies will face Pakistan in three Test matches, three One-Day Internationals, and two Twenty20s during their tour of the Caribbean in March this year.

The first match in the two Twenty20 series bowls off on March 31 with the second carded for April 2 at the Queen’s Park Oval, Port of Spain, Trinidad;

The West Indies team is the current World Twenty20 champion and a sell-out crowd is expected at the Oval.

The historic Kensington Oval in Barbados will host its ninth Test in 10 years as part of the Pakistan tour.

The game will be the second of three Tests on March 31 to May 10 tour.

Sabina Park, Jamaica will play host to the opening Test starting on April, the fourth Test to be played at the venue in as many years.

The second Test bowls off at Kensington Oval, Barbados on April 30, while the third Test starts at Windsor Park, Dominica on May 10.

Both sides also met in a full tour in the United Arab Emirates late last year, with the Caribbean side losing all three formats of the game.

West Indies Cricket Board Manager Roland Holder said he expected the tour to be a challenging one.
