Chairman Najam Sethi on Sunday announced that all three T20 matches of the upcoming West Indies' tour will be held at National Stadium Karachi. You can all afford to pay. "Now with these four up-coming matches, Karachi has lot of cricket coming home so they should welcome them in best way", Sethi said. PCB was in efforts to bring cricket back to Karachi. This will also mark another return of global cricket to the country.

Zimbabwe, a World XI and a Sri Lankan team have toured Pakistan over the last three years but all these short limited-overs series were organized at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore. "Now it is Karachi's turn to rise and shine with PSL3 Final and WI", Sethi wrote in a separate tweet.

Pakistan had been a no-go zone for global teams since a 2009 terrorist attack on the Sri Lankan team bus, which killed eight people and left seven visiting players injured.

Sethi also had a message for those doubting that the Pakistan Super League 2018 final will be held in Karachi.

"It's a good news that West Indies have confirmed three Twenty20 internationals to be played in Karachi on April 1, 2 and 4", Sethi told media in Dubai on the sidelines of the ongoing third edition of the PSL. PSL final and now three more games for Karachi as per routine. The final of the second edition of PSL was hosted by Lahore and many global cricketers agreed to play that.

"Their expert will stay back for seven days and conduct the security for West Indies series. The reason was that I was in discussion and was working with West Indies Cricket Board day and night and come to a conclusion", he said.

"This will be a one-off series... it will be a loss-making enterprise".
