Samuels, Fletcher named in 13-member Windies squad for Pakistan series

Cricket fans in Pakistan have craved regular live cricket of the global variety since then but the game has returned to the country to some degree in recent times.

Meanwhile, Malik also heaped praises on his young teammates like Hasan Ali, Fakhar Zaman, Muhammad Nawaz, Shadab Khan and Faheem Ashraf, saying that these players remind him of former Pakistan superstar for their talent and effort.

The Pakistan Cricket Board is reportedly paying bonuses to the West Indies players to attract regular global cricket back to Pakistan.

The series will see Pakistan host another Test nation in more than one global match for the first time since May 2015, after Sri Lanka cricket team was attacked by terrorists during a tour in 2009. No major teams have toured there since the Sri Lanka team was attacked by terrorists in 2009 in Lahore.

The series will see West Indies vice-captain Jason Mohammed step up to lead the side in the absence of regular captain Brathwaite in the three-match series.

There were also recalls for Veerasammy Permaul and Denesh Ramdin to resume their worldwide career while Chadwick Walton will be the back-up wicket-keeper in the squad.

Sarfraz is also that fans flock to the National Stadium to witness his side take on the West Indies.

As with Sri Lanka's visit to Pakistan last October, West Indies' side is well off from what would be considered a full-strength unit.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) has chose to send its two senior officials to Pakistan to monitor the three-match T20 series between Pakistan and West Indies.

"We have made it very clear to the players and support staff that had personal reservations about this tour that we fully understand and respect their position". Many automatic selections including Chris Gayle, Jason Holder and Evin Lewis along with the T20 captain Carlos Brathwaite pulled out.

Critics say that for the West Indies to send a weak squad even after independent security experts lauded the security arrangements for the PSL final is unfair and a letdown for Pakistan cricket.

The 15-man squad announced for the Windies series features several youngsters and first-timers, including Shaheen Shah Afridi, Hussain Talat and Asif Ali. The credit goes to the PCB and our agencies the way they organised PSL matches.
