Badree shines as World XI level series

Sarfraz Ahmed said that he would have been happier if Indian players were also in the World XI squad

However, Lahore looks highly festive ahead of the match as the administration is decorating the routes with lights and posters carrying pictures of worldwide players. The three T20 game Independence Cup series has reached to an interesting point.

"On a more personal note, I have a strong bond with Pakistan, having toured here with the Zimbabwe cricket team in 1993, 1996 and 1998, " Flower said". However, when the players got used to the conditions, they came back strongly in the series and marked a convincing win in the second game. Pakistan's efforts have resulted them gaining this cricket tournament on home ground.

It happened because when Sri Lanka last time visited in 2009, their players suffered a terrorist attack.

A spectator waves the national flag of Pakistan while watching with others the final match of World XI cricket series in Lahore, Pakistan September 15, 2017. Then Ahmed joined by Babar Azam batted aggressively and both steered the team to 163 in the 18th over. His 55-ball knock included eight fours and three sixes.

Pakistan gave the target of 184 runs to the visitors.

"Hopefully we wont be repeating the mistakes we made in the last game", said the skipper.




Earlier, Babar Azam continued his fine form with a 38-ball 45 while Ahmed Shehzad and Shoaib Malik made 43 and 39 runs respectively as Pakistan managed 174-6 in their allotted 20 overs. The match begins at 7.30 PM IST.

Backed by the International Cricket Council (ICC), the series has been heralded as the return of international cricket.

If all goes well with the current series, the Pakistan Cricket Board will host a three-match T20 home series against West Indies and one T20 against Sri Lanka.

35 years after apartheid's leaders tried, and failed to use cricket as a weapon to smash the pillars of South Africa's isolation from world sport, a World XI side - dominated by cricketers from the Rainbow Nation - flew into Pakistan on Sunday for a week-long tour pregnant with both morality and defiance against terrorism.

Frenzied fans packed the stands of the 60,000 capacity Gaddafi Stadium, cheering nearly equally for both teams.
