Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and Cricket West Indies have decided to postpone the T20I series to the first quarter of 2024. Both teams were scheduled to play the three-match T20I series in Pakistan in January 2023. But the series is now postponed to get more preparation for the 2024 T20 World Cup which is scheduled to take place in West Indies and the USA in 2024.
West Indies travelled to Pakistan in June 2022 to play in three ODI matches in Multan as a part of the 2023 World Cup Super League, where the hosts dominated the series with three big wins. Earlier this month, reports suggested that the T20I series was likely to get postponed and now PCB has confirmed it.
The T20I series was supposed to take place in between New Zealand's visit to Pakistan and the Pakistan Super League 2023. Most of the West Indies players have also signed up for the upcoming T20 league in South Africa and UAE and BBL 2022-23.

West Indies register a crucial World Cup win over Zimbabwe:
After a shocking 42-run defeat against Scotland in their opening T20 World Cup 2022 clash, West Indies registered a crucial win over Zimbabwe on Wednesday (October 19). West Indies, while batting first, were restricted to only 153/7 despite a good start from opener Johnson Charles who scored the highest 45 runs off 36 balls.
Zimbabwe started well with by smashing 18 runs in the first over and looked confident for an easy win against West Indies. But star pacer Alzarri Joseph took four wickets while conceding 16 runs to bowl out Zimbabwe on just 122 runs to guide the Caribbean nation to a much-needed 31-run win. With this win, West Indies are placed in the third position with two points from two games. They will face Ireland in their last group-stage game, who are positioned in number four with two points, on Friday (October 21) at Bellerive Oval in Hobart.
