The Pakistan cricket team will be playing a three-day match at the under-utilized Trelawny Multipurpose Stadium on Saturday, April 15, 2017.

The three-day match is part of the scheduled 2017 Pakistani tour of the West Indies which comprises two Twenty20 Internationals, three One-Day Internationals and three Test matches.

The series will commence on March 31 with the first of two T20Is at West Indies’s largest capacity cricket ground, Queens Park Oval, in carnival crazy Trinidad. The second T20I will be held two days later on April 2.

Providence Stadium, Guyana’s national stadium, will be next on the itinerary and will host three One-Day Internationals (ODIs) on April 7, 9 and 11.

The three-day match in Trelawny on April 15th will be followed by three Test matches, with the first at Sabina Park on April 22. The second match will move to the home of cricket in the Caribbean, Kensington Oval, in Barbados on April 30. Dominica will host the final match of the series, the third Test match, starting on May 10.

Last October in the United Arab Emirates, Pakistan won the T20I series 3-0, the ODI series 3-0 and the Test series 2-1 against The West Indies.
