Australia sees no tour to Pakistan 'in short term'

The Independence Cup featuring Pakistan cricket team and World XI seems to have paved the way for full-scale revival of cricket in the country as West Indies cricket team is next to visit Pakistan. "It is great. The hospitality, the support from the crowds at the ground".

Meanwhile, New Zealand's Grant Elliott, who is now in Pakistan to play the T20 series for World XI, said he found security in the Asian nation as "amazing".

Former cricketer Shahid Afridi has finally received a send off by the Pakistan Cricket Board for his contribution to cricket.

Pakistan cricket Board arranged separate rides for the two star players in "rickshaws" as soon as the Pakistan innings was completed during the match. After the 2009 attack on Sri Lankan team, only Zimbabwe toured the country for a bilateral series in 2015.

Cricket West Indies (CWI) have announced a three-match T20I tour of Pakistan to take place in November while Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) have agreed to play one of the three T20Is scheduled between the two countries later this November at Lahore instead of the UAE. "Everything was very smooth and very easy and we say thank you for that".

Du Plessis was one of five South Africa players in World XI, along with Hashim Amla, David Miller, Morne Morkel and Imran Tahir.

He also added; "I just loved seeing emotions on people's faces, that's the thing that stands out for me", he said when asked about his fondest memory of the tour, adding that he also loved the food in Pakistan. "When I first thought of coming, I was obviously nervous within myself, but now going through this week, I have completely different emotions and feelings and very happy with our time here", he said.

"From my point of view, as chairman of the ICC's Pakistan task team, I am very pleased that we have accomplished this and I am sure the players will talk to their colleagues and we will see the return of bilateral global cricket to Pakistan".

After the great 3- matches other countries have also started thinking about sending their players to Pakistan after watching a full-proof security.
