Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Ramiz Raja was disappointed after the Pakistan-West Indies ODI series was postponed due to Covid-19. But he said that a full-fledged Caribbean side will tour in June for the matches.

Following five more Covid-19 cases among the visiting team, the three-match ODI series was postponed.

The West Indies were infected with the virus on their first day, visiting Pakistan, with three players and one member of the support staff testing positive. While it was not quite enough to put the trip on hold, the discovery of five more cases of Covid-19 on Thursday, the day of the third and final T20I between the two sides forced to postponed the ODI series.

Meanwhile, the former captain was impressed with the Men in Green as they chased down 208 in the final T20I. He also hailed the opening pair of Mohammad Rizwan and Babar Azam, who yet again piled up runs together.

"Very impressive record chase tonight. Self-belief and calmness was at the heart of that feat!," Ramiz tweeted.

"Great year for Rizwan and he doesn’t have a bad partner in Babar too. Pity about the rescheduling of the ODI series but we will have a full fledged fit West Indies team for that June encounter," he added.
