In January, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) had invited West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) for a tour to play two T20s as a precondition in response to another invitation by West Indies asking Pakistan to play two T20 matches in Florida, United States.

However, WICB rejected the proposed tour to Pakistan, citing the security concerns being raised by the Federation of International Cricketers’ Associations (FICA).

In a report, FICA termed the risk level in Pakistan “at an extremely elevated state”, adding that “an acceptable level of participant security and safety cannot be expected or guaranteed”.
