It has come as a breath of fresh air for Pakistan Cricket as after New Zealand and England cancelling their tours of the country citing security reasons, Cricket West Indies confirmed that their Senior Women’s team would tour Pakistan for a three-match ODI series to be played from November 8 to 14. 

The tour comes ahead of an important World Cup qualifying tournament to be hosted by Zimbabwe from November 21 to December 5 where both West Indies and Pakistan would be fighting it out against eight other teams for three spots in the 2022 World Cup to be hosted by New Zealand. 

"This reciprocal tour to Pakistan is an important part of our preparation plans ahead of the World Cup qualifying tournament that is scheduled to take place in Zimbabwe in mid-November," Jonny Graves, CEO of Cricket West Indies said in an official press release.  

"This tour to Pakistan will give the team the chance to play in different conditions compared to the Caribbean and have more high-level competitive cricket ahead of aiming to secure one of the three qualifying spots available for the Women's Cricket World Cup next year,” he added. 

All the matches will be played at National Stadium in Karachi and security was definitely a question that was raised after this announcement. Addressing that Graves said, "The security plan arranged by the PCB is the same high level that the West Indies men's and women's teams received when they last toured Pakistan in 2018 and 2019, respectively.”
