LAHORE: Pakistan announced Monday that the West Indies will play three one-day internationals in Rawalpindi in June after the matches were postponed by the pandemic last year.

"Rawalpindi will host the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup Super League matches against the West Indies at the Pindi Cricket Stadium from June 8-12," the Pakistan Cricket Board announced.


The West Indies will arrive in Islamabad on June 5 for the One-Day Internationals.
The ODIs were part of the West Indies' tour of Pakistan in December 2021. But after five Covid-19 cases were reported on the West Indies side, the matches were postponed.

West Indies had to leave the tour after playing three T20Is last year.

"Now the West Indies have also agreed to play three T20Is in early 2023, the schedule of which will be announced in due course," the cricket board added.

Series schedule:

June 8 - 1st ODI, Rawalpindi
June 10 - 2nd ODI, Rawalpindi
June 12 - 3rd ODI, Rawalpindi

KARACHI: Pakistan’s upcoming three-match One-day International series against the West Indies will be played in Multan instead of Rawalpindi, where it was scheduled to be held originally, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) announced on Monday.

Although the PCB did not mention the reason for the change in venue in its statement, it is widely understood that it has been made due to the ongoing political tensions in the country and the possibility of a sit-in by former prime minister Imran Khan-led Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf to be staged from Wednesday.

The one-dayers — part of the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League — will now be played at the Multan Cricket Stadium on June 8, 10 and 12.

Pakistan’s preparatory camp for the series will be held in Lahore from June 1-4 before the squad moves to Multan on June 5.

The West Indies squad will arrive in Islamabad on June 6 and will travel to Multan on a charter flight.

West Indies team arrives in Pakistan to play ODI series​

The visitors will play three limited-overs matches on June 8, 10 and 12 at the iconic stadium of Multan after a gap of 14 years

MULTAN: West Indies cricket team on Monday arrived in Pakistan to play three ODIs against the home side as part of ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League matches at the Multan Cricket Stadium (MCS).
As per the details, the West Indies ODI squad headed by skipper Nicholas Pooran landed at the Islamabad International Airport this morning. Later the visitors departed for Multan via a chartered flight where they will play three limited-overs matches on June 8, 10 and 12 at the iconic stadium after a gap of 14 years.

The city has been host to some memorable contests since it first staged an international match in 2001 when Pakistan defeated Bangladesh by an innings and 264 run in a Test that began on 29 August.

Pakistan arrived in Multan on Sunday and the West Indies will reach today for what promises to be an exciting and action-packed series with 30 points up for grabs.

When Nicholas Pooran leads his men out on the field on 8 June, it would mark the second instance of a West Indies side taking the field at the MCS in ODIs. The two sides last played at the MCS on 13 December 2006 with Marlon Samuels’ breezy 100 not out off 99 balls securing a seven-wicket win for the tourists.

The picturesque Multan stadium has hosted seven ODIs with Pakistan winning four. In its inaugural ODI, Pakistan defeated Bangladesh by 137 runs in September 2003. The two sides also played the last ODI at the venue to date, which the hosts won by seven wickets.

In the second ODI here on 30 September 2004, Pakistan had recorded the biggest win, in terms of runs, at the venue when they defeated Zimbabwe by 144 runs.

India and South Africa are the other two sides to have played here. Both came out victorious with India recording a five-wicket win in February 2006 and South Africa winning by seven wickets in October 2007.

ODI records at MCS​

Opener Yasir Hameed has scored the most runs at this venue, smashing 197 runs in four innings, followed by former Pakistan captain and local star Inzamam-ul-Haq (178).

Including Samuels, four batters have scored centuries at the MCS. The other three are Pakistan’s Abdul Razzaq and Yasir Hameed, and Bangladesh’s Shakib-ul-Hasan.

While spinners Shoaib Malik and Shahid Afridi, with six wickets each, have the most scalps in international 50-over contests at the MCS, India’s RP Sing – with four for 40 – has the best bowling figures for a fast bowler here.

Squads​



Pakistan:
Babar Azam (captain), Shadab Khan (vice-captain), Abdullah Shafique, Fakhar Zaman, Haris Rauf, Hasan Ali, Iftikhar Ahmed, Imam-ul-Haq, Khushdil Shah, Mohammad Haris (wicketkeeper/batter), Mohammad Nawaz, Mohammad Rizwan (wicketkeeper/batter), Mohammad Wasim Junior, Shaheen Shah Afridi, Shahnawaz Dahani and Zahid Mahmood.


West Indies:
Nicholas Pooran (captain), Shai Hope (vice-captain), Nkrumah Bonner, Shamarh Brooks, Keacy Carty, Akeal Hosein, Alzarri Joseph, Brandon King, Shermon Lewis, Kyle Mayers, Anderson Phillip, Rovman Powell, Jayden Seales, Romario Shepherd, Hayden Walsh Jr.

Pakistan 306 for 5 (Babar 103, Imam 65, Joseph 2-55) beatWest Indies 305 for 8 (Hope 127, Brooks 70, Rauf 4-77) by five wickets

It was all going to plan, until it suddenly wasn't. The usual hundred from Babar Azam - his fourth in five innings - set Pakistan up for what looked like a fairly straightforward chase of 306, before a middle-order stutter let West Indies back in. In the end, it was left to a gem of a cameo from Khushdil Shah, who smashed four sixes en route an unbeaten 23-ball 41, to see Pakistan home by five wickets and four balls to spare. It meant Shai Hope, whose 12th ODI hundred was classy enough to merit winning the game in its own right, ended up in vain, as the visitors fell just short in an attritional ODI.

The target didn't hold much fear for Pakistan, at least while some combination of the ever-reliable top three were still out in the middle. When Jayden Seales forced Fakhar Zaman to flat-bat one to short point, it brought Imam and Babar together - two men who combined famously to chase down 349 against Australia. The West Indies fast bowlers, though, kept things tight on a Multan surface that looked like it wasn't allowing the ball to come on so easily in the evening, and for a while, it was all Pakistan could do to ensure they didn't lose a cluster of wickets while waiting for batting to get easier.

While Babar took his time en route his first 50 runs, Imam was brisker. After fortuitously surviving a marginal lbw call early on, he took on charge of keeping the asking rate in check, finding regular boundaries and routinely turning the strike over. It took 56 balls for him to get to his half-century, by which time the asking rate was creeping to seven.

Eventually though, the wicket-taking threat that West Indies posed began to fade, and right on cue, Babar whirred into action. By the time Akeal Hosein struck to remove Imam, he was in full flow, inexorably motoring along to his 17th ODI hundred. Mohammad Rizwan, whose lack of form in this format has come under scrutiny - if only for the sharp contrast it presents compared to his T20 record - kept him company. Pakistan were building towards something of a cruise of a finish, with 72 required in nine overs with eight wickets still in hand.

But Alzarri Joseph, perhaps the pick of the West Indies bowlers, drew Babar into mistiming a bouncer, and with 69 to win and a fragile middle order to come, West Indies sniffed an opportunity. The runs dried up and Romario Shepherd got rid of Rizwan soon after, and suddenly an asking rate that looked comfortable was pushing 12 in the final four overs.

It was time for the Khushdil show. Shepherd was put away for three successive sixes - the bottom hand power in each of them particularly impressive - as Pakistan inched closer once more. West Indies struck with the wicket of Shadab Khan and took it to the final over, but by then, the damage Khushdil had inflicted was too much to recover from. Mohammad Nawaz sealed the win with a six over long-on, and Pakistan had survived a scare.

A classy 127 from Hope, which took him past 4,000 runs in ODIs, had powered West Indies to 305. The backbone of the innings was a 154-run partnership between Hope and Shamarh Brooks, two men who effortlessly made the transition from cool Amstelveen to sizzling Multan. It set for the visitors a glorious platform, but Pakistan struck back after Brooks fell for 70 in the 31st over thanks to a superb diving catch from Shadab. Pakistan secured regular wickets from thereon, while also keeping the run-rate in check, but a strong finish from Rovman Powell and Shepherd catapulted West Indies past 300.

Winning the toss, Nicholas Pooran opted to put runs on the board on a surface that appeared conducive to batting. Despite a stuttering start that saw them lose Kyle Mayers early - Shaheen Afridi invariably striking in his first spell - Hope and Brooks grew increasingly comfortable out in the middle after the Powerplay. Once the field spread out, the dot balls - of which there were 40 of in the first 10 overs - vanished.

The Hope-Brooks partnership was as artistic as it was effective. There was some sumptuous strokeplay against both spin and pace bowling, Brooks regularly presenting the full face of the blade in the process of caressing some lovely straight drives, while Hope's dismantling of Hasan Ali and Nawaz meant regular runs were an ever-present feature of the middle overs.

But when, once too often, Brooks looked to power Nawaz against the turn through midwicket, his fortune ran out. A top edge flew up in the general vicinity of short third man, and if the man in question hadn't been Shadab, the stand might have continued on its jolly way. As it was the allrounder put in a dive, left arm outstretched, plucking the ball out of the air and breathing new life into a bowling effort that was beginning to wilt.

Pooran could offer little more than a cameo - though consecutive cow corner sixes off Nawaz did keep the runs ticking over. Brandon King's struggles to get going perhaps recalibrated West Indies expectations of a truly huge score, though by now, Hope had got his hundred with a crunching cover drive and appeared to be truly cutting loose.

But once he fell in the 44th over, Pakistan's death bowlers struck back. Sure, there were a few fours and sixes sprinkled in, but too often for the visitors' liking, Pakistan managed to sneak in tight overs, undoing some of the damage those boundaries inflicted. Even Hasan Ali, who endured another rough day, pulled things back with a brilliant final over. Even so, at the very end, a couple of sixes from Shepherd and Hosein guaranteed the visitors a score in excess of a run-a-ball.

It's a chase that, of late, Pakistan have found particularly comfortable to deal with at home. But for Khushdil, this one might not have been. It was perhaps fitting, then, that at the post-match presentations, Babar refused the Player-of-the-Match award, handing it instead to the man who had ensured his 17th ODI hundred would ccme in a match-winning cause.
