Due to heavy smog the much-awaited three-match T20 series between Pakistan and West Indies is postponed, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) officials told reporters on Monday.

A senior PCB official said the thick blanket of smog in Lahore, [where the matches were expected to be held], and the commitment of West Indies' major players to the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) became the main reasons for the postponement of the bilateral T20 series.

"The PCB and the West Indies Cricket Board had agreed that West Indies will tour Pakistan in November, but now it is unlikely to happen because of the smog and some other reasons," the official said, adding that the Meteorological Department had been unable to specify a timeframe for the dissipation of the smog.

He said both the boards are now deliberating other possible dates for the series. The tour is expected to take place after March 2018, the official said.
