According to the plan, the three T20 global matches will be played at the newly-renovated National Stadium in Karachi on April 1, 2 and 4.

"Everybody was asking me as to why we weren't putting tickets for the West Indies series on sale".

In November, last year, Sethi had stated that Cricket West Indies and Pakistan Cricket Board had signed an agreement to play T20Is series every year for a period of next five years, in Pakistan and the USA.

"Good news is that West Indies will play three games, on [April, 1, 2 and 4], but these matches will be played in Karachi. That's how we will put Karachi back on the worldwide cricketing map", he said.

Talking about the matches that are going to be played in Karachi, he said, "PSL final and three West Indies matches will be held in Karachi. The people of Pakistan should welcome this news", he stressed.

"Reg DIckason and his men will be here during the PSL final and we have contracted them to oversee the West Indies games as well", Sethi said. This is part of our agreement with the West Indies board.

"We have a separate agreement with the West Indies in which we are exploring a tri-lateral series including Pakistan, West Indies and one other country, which will be played in the U.S. over next five years". It could be Bangladesh or some other country. ASAP. Now ASAP could mean next year, or the year after that. But when we compare it with PSL 1 and PSL 2 we have data which shows that whatever the picture is of Dubai was the same the previous year, no major significance in terms of attendance so far, while Sharjah was better than last year.

A view of the National Cricket Stadium in Karachi. "The stadiums in Lahore and Multan are already ready".

Karachi will also host the PSL final on March 25, while Lahore will host two play-off games on March 20 and 21. Some people say that the Chairman's Box is not ready.

After successfully hosting a few matches in Lahore PCB's plan is to now add Karachi to the cricketing map.
