Cricket West Indies Drop A T20I From Pakistan Series

The Cricket West Indies (CWI) has eliminated a Twenty20 International from their home series against Pakistan, instead opting for a four-game T20I series. The schedule for the two-Test series that will follow is unaltered.

“Yes, we have canceled the first T20I and play the rest of the tour as originally planned. We have to prioritize the ODI Super League and the World Test Championship really,” the board official said justifying the decision. “It was the most logical choice.”

Rescheduled Game

The rescheduling of the games against Australia has had an impact on Pakistan’s preparations. Due to a recent positive case of COVID-19 in the West Indian team, which also disrupted the Australia series recently, the CWI will not be able to start the series on July 27.

The adjustment in Australian games was announced by the CWI.

“Following the disruption of the series against Australia, meetings between Cricket West Indies (CWI) and Cricket Australia (CA) on Friday evening, after earlier discussions with the Barbados Cricket Association (BCA) and the Government of Barbados medical officials, CWI is pleased to announce that the CG Insurance One-Day International (ODI) Series will resume on Saturday and conclude on Monday.”

Because of the tight timeframe, the CWI was unable to adjust the Pakistan series and accommodate all of the games. It had previously agreed to the Board of Control for Cricket in India’s (BCCI) request to move the commencement date of this year’s Caribbean Premier League (CPL) from August 28 to August 26, the day after the second Test between West Indies and Pakistan was slated to end.

CWI Wants to Avoid Clash

Because the CWI sought to avoid clashing with the dates of the Indian Premier League (IPL), which begins on September 19, the CPL dates were changed.
