"I wanted to reveal this [agreement] so that it would become clear that the visits to Pakistan by global teams are not one-time affairs, and the five-year contract with West Indies explains our position", he said.

The last global match played at National Stadium was the first Test between Pakistan and Sri Lanka during the 2009 series, following which there was an armed attack on the Sri Lankan team bus, the incident that led to Pakistan being shunned by visiting teams.

Earlier, the tour was supposed to happen in November this year but due to unforeseen circumstances, the tour rescheduled to next year.

Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Najam Sethi on Saturday announced the new dates for West Indies tour to Pakistan.

The worldwide cricket came back to Pakistan after the series against World XI and a one-off match against Sri Lanka and now, the development goes ahead with the next series against West Indies in March 2018.

The first series will be held from March 29-April 1 next year in Pakistan, but venues are still to be determined.

The series which is going to be played in the United States of America, will be a triangular series, as the third team is not decided yet.

Sethi added that the series in Pakistan would be a bilateral series.

The PCB is on a quest to have global cricket returned to the country after several years, following an attack by militants on the Sri Lankan team bus back in 2009 which left several of the security forces dead.

West Indies will now travel to Pakistan for a three-match T20 worldwide series in March of 2018. They think holding a series in the USA is financially more feasible.
