Pakistan's cricket chief on Sunday confirmed three Twenty20 internationals with the West Indies in Karachi early next month, taking a giant step towards reviving worldwide series amid improved security in the country.

The ill-fated tour's second match saw the islanders targeted in a terrorist attack, following which worldwide teams opted against visiting Pakistan, forcing the PCB to organise its home series in UAE.

Windies are set to tour Pakistan for a three-match T20I series, set to be played on April 1, 2 and 4, this year, Pakistan Cricket Board chairman Najam Sethi announced on Sunday (March 11).

Pakistan all-rounder Imad Wasim has been declared "stable" after the left-hander injued himself while playing for Karachi Kings against Lahore Qalandars during a Pakistan Super League match.

Earlier, Lahore was announced as the venue of the West Indies matches but the PCB was encouraged to host the matches outside Lahore after Karachi was declared safe by global security experts last month.

Karachi will also host the final of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) on March 25. "The idea wasn't to make money, it was to bring cricket back, so this is a step in that direction".

"Nany people were asking if Karachi stadium will be renovated on time and I had been ensuring them that it will be done", he said.

Talking to a private news channel, Bazid, who represented Pakistan in one Test and five ODIs between 2004 and 2008, said that the third edition of PSL shows that we have also improved our standards of fielding.
