West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) has confirmed that they will be hosting two additional Twenty20 International matches in Lauderhill during the upcoming series against Pakistan that kicks-off later this month.

The tour which was originally scheduled to begin on 31st March will now commence with the first two games on 25th and 26 March in Florida making it a four-match contest in the shortest format.

WICB manager cricket operations Roland Holder believes the matches will help the game reach to a wider range of people.

“Twenty20 is an exciting format and this is another opportunity for our fans to indulge in the thrilling atmosphere that surrounds these matches,” said Holder.

“We look forward to fans in Barbados and Trinidad coming out and cheering our team on to victory.”

This will also be the second time two full member teams will feature in a four match T20I series after Zimbabwe and Bangladesh locked horns in Khulna in January last year.

Apart from the four T20Is, the tour will also contain three One-Day Internationals and as many Tests and will come to an end on 14th May in Roseau.
