The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has confirmed that they will host a day-night Test match against West Indies in the United Arab Emirates between 13th and 17th October at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.

PCB released the schedule of the contest against the West Indies in the UAE which includes three Twenty20 Internationals, and an equal number of One-Day Internationals and Test matches to be played in the months of September and October.

The campaign will begin on the 23rd of September with the first T20I in Dubai and the second game will also be played at the same venue on 24th.

Abu Dhabi will host the third and final T20I on 27th September and also the third ODI on 5th October, with the first two ODIs being played in Sharjah on 30th September and 2nd October.

The Test series will get underway with the first game on 13th October, which will be the day-night game in Dubai, while the second and third games will be played in Abu Dhabi and Sharjah, beginning on 21st and 30th October respectively.

West Indies will also play two tour games, one T20 match and another two-day game, against the England and Wales Cricket Board XI at the ICC Academy in Dubai.

Prior to the day night Test match, Pakistan will play a three-day day-night tour match against PCB Patrons XI in Sharjah.

Earlier this year, the West Indies Cricket Board agreed in principle to play the day-night Test after the PCB assured them of a practice match along with training sessions.

Pakistan will also play another day-night Test match against Australia later this year in Brisbane in the month of December.
