Despite the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) confirming a three-match Twenty20 series against West Indies in Lahore in November,

WIPA President Wavell Hinds said he could not confirm if the series will take place since he has yet to be notified of the tour.

He escaped injury while playing for Boost Defenders in Afghanistan when a suicide bomber killed at least three people and injured dozen others outside the Kabul International Cricket Ground where he was playing West Indies Players Association (WIPA) is uncertain that the West Indies tour of Pakistan will take place.

Cricket West Indies (CWI) President Dave Cameron said the players will have to decide whether they want to tour Pakistan for the Twenty20 series.

He, however, made it clear that the tour will depend on the security reports and that the CWI has no intention of forcing any player to undertake the tour.
