Where to see online, get live cricket score

The tremendous efforts made by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) in reviving global cricket in the country deserve high praise indeed and they are finally bearing fruit with the arrival of a high-profile World XI comprising players from seven countries here for a three-match T20 series.

Pakistan had won the first match by 20 runs on Tuesday in Lahore.

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

While the Punjab Government is providing "Presidential level security" for the week-long World XI series in Lahore, Sethi expressed his desire to host a few games in the other cities too, notably Karachi.

Also, given the strained political relations between the India and Pakistan, it was not surprising to see Indian players absent from the World XI side. Most of these players have shown positive attitude towards playing in Pakistan and are excited about being a part of this monumental series.

Pakistan's innings was built around opener Ahmed Shehzad's 55-ball 89 and a 31-ball 48 by Babar Zaman.




On Friday, the World XI, chasing a target of 184, never got going as they could manage to score only 150/8 in their 20 overs. Complete revival calls for a full-fledged series, including Test and 50-over matches against an worldwide team.

Pakistan is set to host the West Indies in a short three-match Twenty20 series in Lahore at the end of November this year, a top Cricket Board (PCB) official said.

His and Pakistan's only hundred in a Twenty20 global had come against Bangladesh during the World Twenty20 tournament in 2014. In the next over Morkel was run out at just 1 and the World XI side was in heaps of trouble.

It consequently left Pakistan deprived of regular global cricket in the country.

Du Plessis' Pakistan connection dates back to his teenage days when he played U-19 World Cup in the nation.
