The WINDIES Women’s Team kickstart their tour of Pakistan on Thursday with the first game of the three-match T20I series in Karachi. Cricket West Indies’ has continued its support to bring international cricket back to Pakistan. Earlier, Pakistan hosted the WINDIES Men’s team for a short tour in 2018.
Windies Women, semi-finalists of the recently concluded Women’s WT20, would look to start the tour on a winning note although a couple of their key players are missing out.
Pakistan Women, on the other hand, would look to make amend for the early exit from Women’s WT20 where they crashed out after three defeats in four league games. With the return of cricket back home, the morale of the side would be high.
