The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) has rejected the proposed tour to Pakistan after the security concerns raised by the Federation of International Cricketers' Associations (FICA).

The decision came in the wake of a report from FICA which termed the risk level in Pakistan "at an extremely elevated state" and emphasised that "an acceptable level of participant security and safety cannot be expected or guaranteed".
 
Earlier this month, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) had sent a proposal as a precondition in reply to another invitation received from West Indies asking Pakistan to play a T20 series in Florida in United States.

Subsequently, the West Indies Players Association (WIPA) wrote to FICA, seeking advice on the current security situation in Pakistan.
