The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) has confirmed the schedule for Pakistan Women's tour later this year which will see the two sides compete in four One-Day Internationals and three Twenty20 Internationals.

The final three ODIs will count towards the ICC Women's Championship, the qualifying competition for the 2017 Women's World Cup.

Saint Lucia's Beausejour Cricket Ground will host the four ODIs between 16th and 24th October before the two sides head to Grenada, where the Twenty20s will be played between 29th October and 1st November.

Each of the three Women's Championship ODIs have reserve days set aside in case of bad weather.

In 17 ODIs between the two sides, West Indies have won 13 and Pakistan four, last meeting in the final of the World Cup qualifier in Bangladesh in 2011, when West Indies won by 130 runs.

In Twenty20s, it is a little closer with West Indies leading by three wins to one with one tied match.

The series schedule was revealed following a quarterly meeting of WICB Directors, at which they also confirmed they will put more efforts into developing the women's game in the Leeward Islands and introduce match fees for the Regional Women's Tournament for the first time.
