Windies Women to play Pakistan ODIs in Dubai early February

By January 10, 2019

As the Windies Women prepare for their tour of Pakistan later this month, Cricket West Indies said they have confirmed the dates for the ODI leg of the tour but are still working out details for the T20 matches.

CWI CEO Johnny Grave revealed on Wednesday that everything was almost in place for the tour to go ahead as planned.

"The three ODIs are confirmed and are being played in the UAE,” he told SportsMax.tv, adding that the matches will be played on February 7,9 and 11 in Dubai.

“We are meeting the players and WIPA next week to discuss the PCB's proposal to play three T20Is in Karachi. Eastern Star International will present the security plan and give their assessment then,” he said.

Pakistan sources said that a tentative plan from the Pakistan Cricket Board has the Windies Women arriving in Pakistan on January 26 with the first T20 to be played on January 31. The second match would be played on February 1 and the third on February 3.

All three matches would be played at the South End Club Ground in Karachi.

Sportsmax.TV had reported in December 2018 that the Windies Women would be touring Pakistan and the United Arab Emirates to play three ODIs and three T20 internationals between late January and early February 2019.

However, Director of Cricket Jimmy Adams said at the time that logistics were still being finalized before the tour could go ahead.

The Windies Women are currently engaged in a two-week camp in Antigua.

    Rangpur Riders coach Tom Moody has warned that Windies stars batsman Chris Gayle is due a big performance with the bat, following a slow start to the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL).

    Life in the BPL this season has been a mighty struggle so far for the big left-hander.  In four games to date, Gayle the tournament’s record runs scorer has hit a total of 39 runs.  The player’s stay at the crease so far includes totals of one, eight, 23 and seven in the four games he’s played. 

    The total seems a far cry from the 485 runs Gayle racked up in 11 matches last season at an average of 53.88.  The performance left the West Indian as the tournament’s record runs scorer.  Moody has, however, backed the player to find form sooner rather than later.

    “I’m sure Chris is frustrated. Chris has got a record in T20 cricket that no one’s close to. He is also a very proud man and we know that a player of his quality is going to shine at any given moment,” Moody said.

    “Once Chris comes to the party with the bat, I feel for the side that’s gonna be in his way.”
