KARACHI: Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Najam Sethi on Monday announced that the West Indies cricket team will tour the country in April.
Speaking to media at the National Stadium Karachi, the PCB chairman confirmed that the former World T20 Champions will be touring Pakistan after the conclusion of the Pakistan Super League (PSL).

He also praised teams working on the renovation of the National Stadium, and said he would return on March 15 to view the final preparations for the event scheduled to be held on March 25.
