World XI bowl in decider; Hasan Ali returns for Pakistan

Lahore's Gaddafi stadium gears for international cricket's return as Pakistan hosts World XI

Sethi said with five South African current players in the World XI side presently in Lahore, the PCB would holds talks with Cricket South Africa to consider sending the full South African team for a short bilateral series sometime next year.

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.

They lost 6 wickets to Ben Cutting (1), Samuel Badree (2), Thisara Perera (2), and Imran Tahir (1).

World XI skipper Faf du Plessis is confident of his side's performance in the final T20I.

Already a T20 global against Sri Lanka has been scheduled, subject to a security clearance and a three match T20 series against West Indies is also in the plans. He was run-out after three back-to-back 6s in the 17th over.

Zimbabwe are the only Test-playing country, since those terrorist attacks, to tour Pakistan while Zimbabwean cricketer-turned-coach, Grant Flower, has worked in Pakistan as the batting coach of that country's national team. More than the series triumph, they would be delighted to host worldwide games after the infamous terror attacks of 2009.

5 dead at nursing home after Irma cuts power
Bill Nelson called the six deaths in Hollywood "an inexcusable tragedy" and called on authorities to get to the bottom of it. The fuse needed to maintain the air-conditioning unit was broken as Hurricane Irma passed through the area.

He added that if Pakistan Super League matches are played in Pakistan it would increase the confidence and trust of the global cricket community that security situation is safe in Pakistan. Hopefully, Pakistan will play Test cricket at home again.

"It's not every day you get an opportunity to play in something that is much more than just about yourself and your own team or your own country", du Plessis said.

With the series ending on a successful note, Pakistan have taken another step towards hosting worldwide games on regular basis with the World XI players and support staffs deserving a lot of credit. "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".

"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.

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. "It will be good for the children to see their heroes play", he hoped.
