Pakistan tour of West Indies 2021: Pakistan will be the third international team to travel to West Indies this summer season.
Pakistan will join the likes of South Africa and Australia to become the third international team to tour West Indies this summer season. Pakistan will play five T20Is and two Test matches in July-August to culminate West Indies’ grand home summer.
Pakistan, who will play three ODIs and as many T20Is between July 8-2o in England, will fly directly from England to West Indies to reach Barbados on July 21.
With the last ODI of Australia’s tour of West Indies scheduled to be played on July 26 at the Kensington Oval, West Indies will start hosting Pakistan from the following day as the first T20I will be played on July 27 at the same venue.
Much like Australia, Pakistan will also play back-to-back T20Is with the second one scheduled to be played on July 28. The final three T20Is will be played on July 31, August 1 and August 3 respectively in Guyana.
After playing a two-day practice match in Guyana before the Test series, both the teams will move to Jamaica for the Test series which will be played between August 12-24.

“The tour to the West Indies is always a valued and prized tour for the Pakistan cricket teams. The Caribbean cricket history, backed up by the excellent playing facilities, supporting crowds and great ambiance, encourages and motivates the players to produce their very best.
“In consultation with the Cricket West Indies and keeping an eye on this year’s ICC Men’s T20 World Cup, we have agreed to replace one Test match with two additional T20Is. This is aimed at providing further T20 content for both teams, as we continue to prepare and build-up to the global ICC event,” Pakistan Cricket Board Chief Executive Wasim Khan said in a statement.

The last time that Pakistan had toured West Indies was for an all-format tour in 2017. The last day of the tour is fondly remembered for the international retirements of former captains and current part of the support staff in Younis Khan and Misbah-ul-Haq.
