The annual meeting of the International Cricket Conference in London on 12 July 1968 agreed a programme of international Test tours including West Indies to Pakistan in 1969.

Negotiations with Pakistan for the short three-Test tour there beginning in October 1969 were formally approved at aWest Indiesā€™ Board meeting of 9 March 1969.  The Board also approved in principle a request for Pakistan to visit the West Indies, possibly during the 1970-71 season.

However, on 27 March 1969  ā€œthe West Indies Cricket Board of Control disclosed that the Pakistan tour plan had broken down. Peter Short, the Board secretary, said the Pakistan cricket authorities had failed to meet the required financial guarantee.

The proposed return visit by Pakistan to West Indies in 1971 also fell through and India toured the Caribbean in 1970-71 instead.
