  • Mohammed leading West Indies for 3 T20s in Pakistan

Cricket West Indies has confirmed middle-order batsman Jason Mohammed as the skipper of the national side for the upcoming three-match Twenty20 worldwide series in Pakistan.

Heavy security will be provided for the Caribbean side to and from the airport and while they are stationed at their hotel.

"We had a few players that opted not to tour Pakistan, due to their or their families' security concerns and CWI have fully accepted their position", Browne said, adding that those players' replacements have an opportunity in the visit to push their claims for future selection.

The foreign players will depart from the stadium right after the match for the airport.

The squad flew out after the Pakistan Super League final last Sunday in Karachi was staged without a hitch.

The Pakistan team is now preparing for the West Indies series at the National Stadium and Hasan says all players will be in form due to their exploits during the recently concluded PSL3.

He attributed the PSL success to each and every person of Sindh and Pakistan and congratulated them on the return of global cricket to Karachi.

Meanwhile, Malik also heaped praises on his young teammates like Hasan Ali, Fakhar Zaman, Muhammad Nawaz, Shadab Khan and Faheem Ashraf, saying that these players remind him of former Pakistan superstar for their talent and effort.

The series represents the first time a major Test-playing nation will tour Pakistan, breaking a nine-year absence of elite sides from the often volatile Asian country.

But the Pakistan Cricket Board has accelerated its efforts to win back the confidence of overseas cricket teams in the last two years.

Flu Second Wave: Influenza B Can Hit Kids Even Harder
But after reaching out to doctors and nurses in the Triad, they say the biggest point they want to drive home: the flu is the flu. Cases of the B-strain made up almost 60 percent of the country's flu cases reported during the week of March 17, said the CDC.

Soon after, there was a series against a World XI and a match against Sri Lanka - all T20s in Lahore.

Cricket West Indies, who acknowledged the series for the first time two days ago while announcing the squad, said they had been assured by independent security advisors Eastern Star International that "risk is manageable and can be mitigated to an acceptable level".

"Whatever team West Indies sends we have to play at our best because they have good shorter format players", said the captain, whose team has only lost three of their 11 Twenty20 internationals against Windies.

PCB Chief Najam Sethi has confirmed that security concerns were not the reason why some main Windies players declined traveling to Pakistan.

Geoff Allardice, general manager of cricket's world governing body, the ICC, is also expected to attend.
