West Indies will play three T20Is and as many as ODIs against Pakistan at the National Stadium in Karachi from December 13–22, according to the Pakistan Cricket Board.

This will be the West Indies' first visit to Pakistan since three T20Is in April 2018. The two-time former 50-over world champions will be playing ODIs in Pakistan for the first time since December 2006.

“After missing out on home internationals in September and October, the West Indies tour will formally kick-off of an exciting and entertaining season of men’s international cricket in Pakistan with HBL Pakistan Super League 2022 and Australia’s first full series to follow,” said PCB Chairman Ramiz Raja

“The West Indies have always remained one of Pakistan cricket fans’ favourite sides. I am hopeful that the NCOC will support this series by allowing maximum crowds so that the fans can watch live in action their favourite players and back both the sides.”

The December ODIs will form part of Pakistan’s fourth series in the Super League, which will see the top seven sides and the event host India qualify directly for the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023 with the remaining two sides progressing from the qualifying event.
