ICC congratulates Pakistan on successfully hosting World XI's tour

Australia sees no tour to Pakistan 'in short term'

Sami further said that the level of confidence has increased significantly in the last few years, but added that the complete return of worldwide cricket in Pakistan is going to be a gradual and slow process.

While the visits of two global sides in the latter half of the current year bode well for Pakistan cricket, there is still a long way to go for the country to draw back major sides for a bilateral tour.

"One thing I think we all should remember is that these are baby steps and I am sure that the PCB (Pakistan Cricket Board) will take one safe and steady step at a time", the star sportsman said in his opening statement during the post-series press conference. Once he was out on the ground the crowd started cheering "Boom Boom Afridi" as rickshaw drove him around the stadium. Lahories, as well as people from other cities, were so much excited and they were not even afraid of anything bad.

In 2009, eight people were killed when a bus carrying the Sri Lanka team was sacked upon by gunmen before the third day of the second test in Lahore. The World XI coach praised the security arrangements in Lahore, saying that the security plan made the players feel secure over the course of their trip to the country.

Acknowledging the importance of that event, Richardson said that the current three-match series would go a long way towards convincing other countries that Pakistan could safely host their teams.

The presence of CWI chief Dave Cameron at the Gaddafi stadium on Friday in company of PCB chief Najam Sethi all but confirms that the Caribbean side will undertake the visit in November.

Pakistani spectators hold placards at the Gaddafi Cricket Stadium in Lahore on September 15, 2017 before the start of the third and final Twenty20 global match between the World XI and Pakistan.

The likes of Darren Sammy were paid up to $50,000 for the PSL final.
