West Indies will tour Pakistan for a three-match ODI series in June, the PCB announced. All three matches, which are part of the 2023 World Cup Super League, will take place in Rawalpindi. They will take place on June 8, 10 and 12, with the visitors arriving in Pakistan on June 5.

ESPNcricinfo understands the PCB is yet to decide whether the series will be played in a bio-secure bubble, and whether the travelling West Indies contingent will have to undergo any quarantine. The PCB also announced that West Indies have agreed to play three T20Is in Pakistan "in early 2023", with the precise dates yet to be announced.

The ODIs were initially part of a West Indies tour of Pakistan in December 2021. At the time West Indies were due to play three T20Is and three ODIs in Pakistan. The three T20Is were completed, with Pakistan winning the series 3-0. However, Covid-19 cases began to spiral in the West Indies camp, and, with mutual consent, the ODI leg of the series was postponed.

The announcement adds to a growing list of visitors to Pakistan in the most extensive home calendar in over a decade. Australia are currently touring Pakistan for three Tests, three ODIs and a T20I. England and New Zealand are also scheduled to visit Pakistan later in the year.
