ICC congratulates Pakistan for successfully staging Independence Cup

Elliot feels 'secure' in Pakistan

World XI, a team from 7 nations was formed by International Cricket Council, arrived in Pakistan to revive cricket in Pakistan under the supervision of Coach Andy Flower. Once he was out on the ground the crowd started cheering "Boom Boom Afridi" as rickshaw drove him around the stadium.

He said Darren Sammy had visited Pakistan twice and their security teams had witnessed security arrangements in the PSL final and now in the world XI tour and security was very good in Pakistan which was an ideal host country and in the given circumstances he was sure that his team would visit the country in November.

Former cricketer Shahid Afridi has finally received a send off by the Pakistan Cricket Board for his contribution to cricket.

Since then the country has only played minor worldwide matches on home soil against Zimbabwe, Kenya and Afghanistan. The PCB has had to rely on heavy financial incentives for the visiting players to draw them to the country so far.

"The reaction of the Pakistanis who were at the ground is something I have never seen in my life", said Clarke, who attended the first two matches.

The Tamil version has received 2.5 lakh views on YouTube where the Telugu version has already received close to 6.5 lakh hits. It is a spy thriller and directed AR Murugadoss and shown all that would typically go in an Indian spy thriller.

Cricket Australia chief executive James Sutherland says he does not expect Australia to play in Pakistan "in the short term".

Since then, the only global team to visit Pakistan was Zimbabwe, which played five limited-overs games in Lahore in 2015. The PCB needs all the appreciation, all the law enforcing agencies who were involved deserve praise, players who took on the challenge of coming here and playing cricket deserve special mention.

That the series went down smoothly without any incident is a testament to the efforts put in by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and the ICC.

"The ICC has already agreed to invest in security and improving the security capabilities for a three-year period", Richardson said, adding that he would like to see other countries sending their teams to Pakistan.
