The Pakistan Cricket Board has moved the ODI series against the West Indies from Rawalpindi to Multan.

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) informed the International Cricket Council (ICC) on Tuesday that the three-match ODI series between Pakistan and the West Indies had been shifted from Rawalpindi to Multan (ICC).

The three matches, which are part of the Cricket World Cup Super League, will take place on June 8, 10, and 12. The PCB has opted to hold the matches at 4 p.m. local time to avoid the blazing afternoon heat.

The series was supposed to start in December, but it was pushed back owing to a Covid-19 epidemic in the West Indies camp. Prior to it, Pakistan had won the T20I series 3-0.

Pakistan’s training camp will begin on June 1 in Lahore before relocating to Multan on June 5. Haris Rauf and Shadab Khan, who both play county cricket, are scheduled to arrive far ahead of schedule for the series.

The West Indies team will land in Islamabad on June 6 before taking a charter jet to Multan.

There had been rumours that the series may be postponed again again, prompting the PCB to clarify that “no suggestion to postpone the series is under consideration.”

“Any event in Pakistan would be impossible to hold without the backing of the local government. Matches will be place at the location where the green signal is received; decision-making time is limited “PCB has said previously.
