After 2009, this is the very first time that Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has organised a series at their home venue. Most of the cricket playing nation does not want to visit Pakistan due to security concern. In 2009 a terrorist attack occurred on Sri Lanka cricket team and since then all the International schedule were removed from Pakistan. Though, in 2015 a T20I match was executed at Lahore which was between Pakistan and Sri Lanka. Now, West Indies cricket team is visiting Pakistan and after winning the 2nd T20I against West Indies, Pakistan confirmed T20I series. Now, they have only one match left which can change nothing. If Pakistan would lose the last match, the result remains same.
