Pakistan Vs World XI Live Cricket Score T20 Pakistan Take Big Step As World Come to Play

The ongoing three-match T20I series between the hosts and a visiting World XI side at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore is being seen as a historic moment in the country's cricket lore.

Faf du Plessis-led World XI will look for a repeat performance and seal the series when they play Pakistan in the final T20 match at Gaddafi stadium.

World XI skipper Faf du Plessis, who sent Pakistan into bat, hailed the return of cricket to the South Asian nation. Shehzad reached his fifty off 37 deliveries and struck three consecutive sixes in the 18th over to help Pakistan seize the momentum that they lost a bit in the middle.

Fans have been thronging to the Gaddafi Stadium in large numbers which shows how the Pakistan fans have welcomed the return of global cricket to their country. "I am still trying to convince Sri Lanka to play at least two matches in the coming series in Lahore", Sethi said.

The former Kiwi all-rounder expected more global teams to travel to Pakistan if proper security arrangements are kept in place.

"On a more personal note, I have a strong bond with Pakistan, having toured here with the Zimbabwe cricket team in 1993, 1996 and 1998, " Flower said. This game is a series decider, as the contest is now leveled 1-1 following the victory of #World Xi in the second match.

The ICC chief acknowledged the PCB's efforts in revival of the worldwide cricket in Pakistan.

"I can speak for myself and everyone in the World XI squad that we're all really excited to get to Pakistan, to be part of something special, and introducing global cricket slowly and safely back to Pakistan", HashimAmla told reporters. People are so grateful and thankful they have a team to play against in their own backyard.

The PCB and Cricket West Indies (CWI) had been in talks over the proposed series, but PCB chairman Najam Sethi said the tour had been now finalised and a detailed scheduled would be announced shortly.

Former Australia captain George Bailey is also in line to play his first game in the series and will most probably replace David Miller.

In a game that far exceeded its predecessor in electricity, intensity, quality and competitiveness, World XI edged Pakistan in a nerve-wracking contest that went down to the last two balls.
