Dubai, June 20 (MNN) West Indies are set to host Pakistan for a white-ball women’s contest for 3 T20Is and 5 ODIs from June 30, the ICC reports.

The five-match ODI series will form part of a vital preparation for the two teams as they will face each other in the ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup Qualifiers due to take place in Sri Lanka in December for one of the three remaining qualifying spots to secure a seat at the ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup in New Zealand in 2022.

The West Indies women’s team will play at home after a gap of 19 months due to Covid-19 pandemic. They last played in the Caribbean in a bilateral series against India in November 2019 where they were handed a clinical 5-0 defeat.

Cricket West Indies Director Jimmy Adams laid emphasis on the grander scheme of things as the focus now is on the road to the 2022 Cricket World Cup.

“This is a very significant home tour for our women and we are delighted that our counterparts at the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) have worked with us to arrange these two series despite all the challenges we face with COVID-19.

“West Indies continues to invest in our international Women’s program by hosting extended High-Performance camps between tours, two of which have already been held this year,” said Adams.

“The series is also an important part of our preparation for the ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup Qualifiers in December. Our goal post this Pakistan series, is to have our squad play against more international opposition and take part in our Regional Tournament before heading to the Qualifiers in Sri Lanka at the end of the year,” added Adams.
