The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has decided to shift One-Day Internationals series against the West Indies from Rawalpindi to Multan due to political unrest in the twin cities.

The first ODI between Pakistan and the West Indies will be played on June 8.

According to the insiders, the official announcement of the venue change is likely to take place in a few hours.

The administration allowed the match to be rescheduled due to the possibility of a conflict in Rawalpindi, said the insiders.

The West Indies team will arrive in Multan on June 5.

Earlier, on Tuesday, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) had sought guidelines from the federal government to decide on the future of the West Indies series due to PTI’s planned Azadi March.

The three-match ODI series is part of the World Cup 2023 qualifying round. It’s also important for Pakistan since it’s the start of a busy international cricket season for the national side in the months ahead.
