Pakistan-West Indies women T20I series trophy unveiled
KARACHI (92 News) – The Pakistan-West Indies women T20 International trophy was unveiled at Sea Vie Beach on Wednesday.
Earlier, the West Indies cricket team reached Karachi for three Twenty20 International (T20I) matches on Wednesday.
On their arrival, the visitors were accorded a rousing welcome by the PCB officials.
The Windies are in Pakistan for three Women’s Twenty20 Internationals starting on Thursday, marking the first visit by their team to the country in 15 years, reported the ICC.
The opening game will be followed by matches on February 1 and 3. Both teams will also play a three-match series in Dubai from February 7 to 11.
Excitement is high in the squad led by stand-in captain Merissa Aguilleira, with the players keen to do their bit to bring cricket back to Pakistan.
“I’m pleased we can bring back cricket to Pakistan. There is no security issue here and the series will be interesting,” said Aguilleira.
Before their departure from Dubai, she Aguilleira: “We have a motto, two words our coach has given us: adapt and overcome. That is what we are trying to do. It is really difficult adapting in such quick time, but we are professional cricketers and we are willing and raring to go. We are excited for this tour.”
Pakistan skipper Bisma Maroof said that T20 is a power game. “We will display a better game.”
In his message on Twitter, Shoaib Malik welcomed the visiting team and expressed good wishes for the series.
