The West Indies cricket team arrived in Karachi today [Thursday] to play three T-20s and three ODIs against Pakistan.

The West Indies cricketers and the team’s administration officials arrived in Karachi from Dubai, where samples for COVID-19 tests were taken.

Sources in the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) said the cricketers will quarantine at the hotel till their coronavirus tests don’t come back negative.

The team will start their practice session on Friday.

The West Indies cricket team will play a T20 and ODI series in Pakistan. The first of the T20 matches between Pakistan and the West Indies will be played on December 13 at the National Stadium Karachi.
