Teams reach National Stadium for third T20I

KARACHI: Pakistan and West Indian teams have arrived here at National Stadium to play third and last T20I of the series. 

Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and Windies Cricket held a long online meeting after five more COVID-19 cases were detected in the touring party’s camp. Three players (Shai Hope, Akeal Hosein and Justin Greaves) alongside Assistant Coach Roddy Estwick, and Team Physician Dr Akshai Mansingh returned COVID-19 positive.

PCB gave green signal to the teams to reach National Stadium to play third T20I of the series. Meanwhile, the decision on ODI series will be announced in a press conference, scheduled in a short while here at National Stadium.

Earlier before the T20I series, three players (Roston Chase, Sheldon Cottrell, and Kyle Mayers) alongside a non-coaching member of the team were tested COVID-19 positive.

Remember, Pakistan has already won the T20I series 2-0. Both teams are scheduled to play three ODIs on December 18, 20, 22, respectively.
