ICC backs return of worldwide matches in Pakistan

ICC backs return of worldwide matches in Pakistan

Only Zimbabwe has toured Pakistan, that too two years ago, for a very brief, limited overs cricket series in 2015 since the terrorists attacked a Sri Lanka Team bus in Lahore in 2009.

Pakistan skipper Sarfraz Ahmed has insisted that he would love to win all the three T20I matches of the Independence Cup against the World XI.

Pakistan marked the return of worldwide cricket to the country with a 20-run win in the first match on Tuesday.

"This has been a huge success", said du Plessis. Hopefully, Pakistan will play Test cricket at home again. Thank everyone for the opportunity for coming here.

"The wait is over now and worldwide cricket is here", he said.

David Miller and Thisara Perera hit contrasting knocks of 32 with the Sri Lankan blazing his in 13 balls while the South Africa took 29 balls for his in an effort to take the game deep.

Others never got going in a shaky chase which saw three World XI batsmen run out.

Update: Pakistan defeat World XI by 33 runs to clinch the Independence Cup.

Report, 2nd T20I: Hashim Amla smashed a half century and Thisara Perera provided an excellent finish with a 19-ball 47 as World XI defeated Pakistan by seven wickets in the second Twenty20 worldwide on Wednesday.

Shehzad fell 11 short of his second Twenty20 hundred as he attempted a single off a wide ball. We know the security plans being enforced for the World XI matches are causing some inconvenience to the people.

During the innings break the Pakistan cricket Board arranged a lap of honour for retired greats Shahid Afridi and Misbah-ul-Haq. From giving standing ovation to the visiting cricketers to chanting "Hashim, Hashim", the fans enjoyed every moment of the game.

While disclosing that the ongoing Independence Cup would not be a profitable venture, Pakistan Cricket Board chairman Najam Sethi said the activity was the first step towards reviving global cricket which would help gradually improve PCB's finances in future contests.
