The West Indies’ tour of Pakistan has been cut short after the number of Covid-19 cases in the touring party increased to nine since their arrival in Karachi last week, the two cricket Boards said on Thursday.

The two Boards met hours before the third T20I began in Karachi on Thursday — which went ahead as planned — to discuss the fate of the ODI series after five more members of the visiting contingent tested positive for Covid-19.

The Caribbean side were scheduled to play three ODIs in Pakistan but now the series will be “rescheduled for early June”.
