West Indies tour of Pakistan: The West Indies cricket team is scheduled to visit Pakistan in June 2022 to play three One Day International (ODI) matches. Initially, the games were scheduled to be played in December 2021 but were postponed after the confirmation of several COVID-19 cases against the West Indies team and support staff.
The ODI series will be part of the first ICC Cricket World Cup Super League 2020-23. On March 28, 2022, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) confirmed the tour, with Rawalpindi hosting all three matches.
The first five one-day matches between Pakistan and the West Indies at Rawalpindi was cancelled due to heavy rain.
Referees Daryl Harper and Aleem Dar cancelled the match after three days of heavy rain that left the ground flooded. “The referees asked the curator if he could give them down after three hours but he said this would not happen even though the rain had stopped,” said Pakistan Cricket Board spokeswoman Naushad Ali. “They cancelled the game because of the wetness of the stadium and the square.”
Brian Lara said his team will now focus on the second game on Thursday. “The weather was not good but we have to keep going,” he said. “The focus is on the second game as the series progresses.”
Pakistan will be developed with the return of Inzamam-ul-Haq. Despite the fact that the first ODI has been abandoned, the game will still be part of the four-match ban he received after the Oval affair. Having missed three Pakistani matches in the Champions Trophy and now this one, unselected, Inzamam will be allowed to return for the second ODI in Faisalabad on December 7.
