Members of the Pakistan cricket team have left the UK city of Manchester for a tour of the West Indies on Wednesday, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

The Pakistan Cricket Board, in a news release, confirmed that the team has left the UK for the West Indies.

The Babar Azam-led team will face the Caribbean cricketers in five T20Is which will be followed by two Tests. 

Pakistani team lost both one-day and T20 series against England on the recently concluded tour. 

In the 50-over format, England — despite making last-minute changes in the squad after seven members from the original contingent tested positive for coronavirus — clean swept the visitors after winning all three matches comfortably by nine wickets, 52 runs and three wickets margin. 

In the 20-over format, the contest was a much closer one where the Pakistani team secured a win in the first match by 32 runs. However, England made a spirited comeback and registered back-to-back wins by 45 runs and three wickets to seal the series.
