A Good Step for the Pakistan Cricket

A Good Step for the Pakistan Cricket

Pakistan had won the first match by 20 runs on Tuesday before World XI levelled the series with a seven-wicket victory in the second on Wednesday.

World XI: Tamim Iqbal, Hashim Amla, Faf du Plessis (c), David Miller, Darren Sammy, Thisara Perera, George Bailey (wk), Ben Cutting, Samuel Badree, Morne Morkel and Imran Tahir.

Pakistan will be aiming for to seize the historic Twenty20 global series against the World XI in the intriguing finale on Friday. But this is sure that the most loved game by the Pakistani people will come back to their country.

It's the only (cricket-playing) country I hadn't been to, but now I can say I've played cricket in Pakistan.

They said Misbah served the game with pride and Afridi was always instrumental in pulling crowd with his fire work batting no matter he was playing home or overseas throughout his career. Cameron appreciated PCB's efforts in reviving cricket in Pakistan. "We think that we have opened the door for the return of worldwide cricket", Pakistan Cricket Board chairman Najam Sethi told Reuters. He said this during a joint press conference with Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Najam Sethi at Gaddafi Stadium, Lahore, reported Dunya News.

"These three T20s between World XI and Pakistan are very important in the context of Pakistan cricket".

Asked to chase 175, the World XI reached their target with a single ball to spare, setting up a series decider in today's third and final contest. "As we host more foreign teams we will have relaxations but without compromising on the security for visiting teams or our players", Sethi said.

"The ICC has already agreed to invest in security and improving the security capabilities for a three-year period", said Richardson, further adding that he would like to see other countries sending their teams to Pakistan. "The door is open and I am sure in the next two-three years bigger teams like India, Australia and England will also tour us".

It's not everyday that Pakistan cricket fans get to see their stars getting felicitated, but on Friday, a packed Gaddafi Stadium crowd in Lahore found themselves applauding their hero Sahid Afridi. World cricket's governing body wants global teams back in Pakistan after an eight-year absence due to security concerns but cautioned that it could be a "long process".
