KARACHI: A full packed stadium will be seen under the lights of National Stadium, Karachi, later this month for  the first time since the pandemic, as Pakistan take on West Indies.

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Saturday announced that the stadium would host fans at 100% seating capacity during the three T20Is and as many ODIs from December 13-22.

Pakistan have won 17 T20Is this year and will enter the shorter format series against the West Indies with nine wins in the last 10 matches.

On the National Command and Operation Centre's instructions, the PCB has said that only fully vaccinated spectators will be allowed to enter the stadium.

"To ensure all the spectators get to enjoy the action in a safe manner, they are advised to follow the COVID-19 protocols and wear the face masks when in the stands," the PCB statement said.
