Pakistan's women’s home series is scheduled to conclude on October 21 and the team will fly to Zimbabwe during mid-November to play ICC women cricket world qualifiers.

“As the team is preparing for ICC World Cup qualifiers, the majority of matches are expected to be ODIs but both the boards are working to add T20Is in the tour as well,” the source said.

West Indies women last played an ODI series in Pakistan in 2004. However, the side led by Merissa Aguilleira toured Pakistan in early 2019 to play 3 T20Is.
