Karachi last hosted an global game in 2009 when Sri Lanka played a Test match before an attack by gunmen on its team bus in Lahore shut the door on worldwide cricket in Pakistan.

Hasan, while talking to The Express Tribune, said that they would not be taking the Caribbean giants lightly when both teams take on each other at the National Stadium of Karachi on April 1, 2 and 3.

But the three-match Twenty20 global series against the West Indies which begins here at the National Stadium from Sunday (tomorrow) is a different story.On Saturday (today), Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed will talk to the press but his West Indian counterpart Jason Mohammed won't be there.

The 33-year-old s last T20 for the West Indies was in the final victory over England in Kolkata two years ago.

Zimbabwe travelled to Lahore for five limited-overs matches in 2015 - the first since the 2009 attack.

Sarfraz Ahmed (far right) expects big crowds to grace global cricket's return to Karachi.

West Indies will be playing their Twenty20 matches at the Pakistan National Stadium in Karachi.

"Whatever team West Indies sends we have to play at our best because they have good shorter format players", said the captain, whose team has only lost three of their 11 Twenty20 internationals against Windies.

"This tour is a further major step for our friends at the Pakistan Cricket Board to bring their cricket back home", CWI chief executive Jonny Grave said in a statement.

"We have made it very clear to the players and support staff that had personal reservations about this Tour that we fully understand and accept their position".

Earlier, the Caribbean side's tour to Pakistan was due to take place in November previous year, but adverse weather conditions in Lahore and the West Indies' major players commitment to the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) became the main reasons behind the postponement.

Pakistan will likely also take the opportunity to blood some fresh talent with uncapped youngsters Asif Ali, Hussain Talat and Shaheen Afridi included in the squad led by Sarfaraz Ahmed.

And though Windies haven't been able to name their strongest possible squad - Carlos Brathwaite, Chris Gayle, Jason Holder and Devendra Bishoo chose to skip the series due to security concerns - the ICC World T20 2016 champions should have enough to keep the home side on their toes.

Heavy security will be provided for the Caribbean side to and from the airport and while they are stationed at their hotel.
