Pakistan and the West Indies have signed an agreement under which they will play a T20 series each year in Pakistan and the United States for the next five years.

This was announced by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman, Najam Sethi at a press conference in Lahore.

"There has been a lot of speculation regarding Pakistan and West Indies series. I can confirm now that both the boards have reached an agreement under which we will play a T20 series each year for the next five years in Pakistan and USA subject to availability of dates and venues which will be finalised later," Sethi said.

He said the first series would take place with the West Indies board confirming they will send their full national side to Pakistan in March 2018.

"The matches will take place on March 29 and 31st and April 1st next year," he added.

"This series couldn't be held in November as earlier planned due to adverse weather conditions and we didn't want to take any risk," he said.

Sethi said the West Indies would come to Pakistan for the next five years each year and Pakistan will go to the USA each year in return.

"The series in the USA will be a triangular series with Pakistan, West Indies and a third team to be finalised every year."
