West Indies refuse to tour Pakistan over security reasons

LAHORE: West Indies has refused to play a one day international series against Pakistan in the South Asian country, ARY News reported.

According to details, West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) rejected the offer of their Pakistani counterpart due to security reasons.

The teams will now play the ODI series in UAE after the rejection by WICB.
In 2009, terrorists attacked the Sri Lankan cricket team as the side was on its way to Gaddafi stadium.

Zimbabwe became the first test playing nation to tour Pakistan in 2015. The side played a ODI and T20 series on the tour.
