The ODI series between Pakistan and West Indies will kick off on June 8. The series comprises three ODIs, with all games scheduled to take place at the Multan Cricket Stadium in Multan. The series will be a part of the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League 2020-2023.
West Indies toured Pakistan for a limited-overs series in December last year. Pakistan clean-swept the three-match T20I series while the ODI series that followed was postponed due to COVID-19 crisis. Now, the Caribbean side returns to Pakistan and will be looking to exact revenge in the rescheduled ODI series.
Nicholas Pooran will be leading West Indies in the ODI series. West Indies recently toured the Netherlands, where they put up a good performance to whitewash the three-match ODI series.
Pakistan, on the other hand, will be led by Babar Azam. They have put up a solid squad for the series against West Indies. The likes of Mohammad Rizwan, Shadab Khan, Hasan Ali, and Haris Rauf will be coming off successful stints in the T20 Blast and will look to contribute to their national side.
