Always available to serve cricket in Pakistan, says Afridi

"Pakistan Government, its security agencies and the PCB put in tremendous efforts for a collective cause of resumption of worldwide cricket and ICC duly supported and acknowledged these efforts and sent its World XI to the country", he said.

Shoaib Malik hit two sixes in his seven-ball 17 not out as Pakistan added 58 in the final five overs to reach 183.

"The agreement with the West Indies Cricket Board has been finalised and done and they have confirmed that they will come to Lahore in November to play three T20 Internationals", Sethi said in a television interview here.

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.

Grant even conveyed his feelings that he is hopeful that Pakistan will soon be able to play Test cricket on its home soil.

The couple even shared a few snippets from their fun getaway which showed no signs that they were going through marital issues. She later said she had sought him out because "I had read in a magazine that he had a naughty dream about me".

South African batsman Hashim Amla led the way with the bat for the World XI with a brilliant 72 not out. He said this during a joint press conference with Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Najam Sethi at Gaddafi Stadium, Lahore, reported Dunya News. "I think the next step is to grow and improve the capability in cities outside Lahore and build the confidence in teams like Australia and England to visit Pakistan, in fact, all the cricket teams." the ICC chief executive said. People are so grateful and thankful they have a team to play against in their own backyard.

"I have always spoken for this trend, those who have served Pakistan cricket should be given a proper and memorable send-off", said the former captain.

They made two changes, with former Australian captain George Bailey getting his first game of the tour, while crowd favourite Darren Sammy also returned after sitting out of the second game. Ladies and gentlemen, the World XI looks forward to celebrating the resumption of worldwide cricket in Pakistan by playing some competitive cricket and we hope to see some very interesting over the next few days.

Sri Lanka, whose cricketers were attacked in that terrorist attack in 2009, have already agreed to make the trip and play in Pakistan in November this year.
