Both matches of the much-awaited series - which is being hailed as a stepping stone towards the revival of top-level worldwide cricket in Pakistan after a gap of eight years - have remained high-scoring affairs.
Sethi said the tour by the West Indies is an important milestone as it would be a proper bilateral series in Pakistan and it would open the windows for the PCB to negotiate with other cricket playing nations. Hopefully, Pakistan will play Test cricket at home again. 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.
The "lap of honour" is a fresh trend in the world of cricket, allowing audiences to send off their favourite players with a standing ovation. However, Dav Cameron while answering a question said that just like the players and security teams who visited Pakistan for the Pakistan Super League (PSL) final gave their feedback about the security arrangements to FICA.
According to data available with Dispatch News Desk (DND) News Agency, over 10,000 girls and boys are watching today's World XI T20 Final. The series will be played between Pakistan and World XI team for three T20 matches in Lahore. Cameron appreciated PCB's efforts in reviving cricket in Pakistan. "We are just happy that after a long time Pakistani cricket fans can watch global action at home", Du Plessis said in a press conference in Pakistan.
"My personal bond with guys like Mushtaq Ahmed and Muhammad Akram and my brother's experience with the Pakistani players make it particularly special for me to be here". He said that all the money that would have been earned through India-Pakistan matches is now going to the ICC and if cricket resumes between the countries, the cricket boards would be the biggest gainers.
"When I sit down with my family some day and we talk about this". "I don't have any indications they are looking to play matches against us in Pakistan".
Ben Cutting and Amla both fell in Ali's first over before former Australia captain George Bailey and Du Plessis also departed.
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.
