The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) on Thursday issued the schedule for their upcoming series with Pakistan, ESPNcricinfo reported. 

Guyana, St Lucia and St Vincent and Grenadines will see five ODIs and two Twenty20 Internationals played between Pakistan and West Indies in July.

The first two ODIs will be played in Guyana on July 14 and July 16 while the remaining ODIs will be played in St Lucia on July 19, July 21 and July 24.

Two T20Is will be played in St Vincent at the Arnos Vale Cricket Ground on July 27 and July 28.

Pakistan will also play a 50-50 warm-up game in Guyana before the series.

Originally scheduled to play two Tests, five ODIs and two Twenty20s in the Caribbean in June and July, Pakistan’s planned visit to the West Indies was shortened due to a tri-series involving India, Sri Lanka and West Indies.

This will be the first time in two years that Guyana will see an international match. The Guyana National Stadium last hosted an ODI in 2011 between West Indies and Pakistan.

A Test against Australia in 2012 was shifted to another venue due to administrative disputes between the WICB, the Guyana Cricket Board and the Guyanese government.
