West Indies to tour Pakistan for T20 series in November: PCB

The three T20 matches will be played

In the next over Morkel was run out at just 1 and the World XI side was in heaps of trouble. Playing his first game of the tour, George Bailey kept wickets for the first time in an worldwide game (maybe, auditioning for Matthew Wade's role in the national side) before failing with the bat. From there on the visitors struggled and were reduced to 67 for five.

Yousuf, who represented Pakistan in 90 Tests, 288 ODIs and three T20Is, and scored more than 17 thousand runs combined, also applauded teams' performance in the opening match.

The 61 run stand finally ended when Zaman was run out by Darren Sammy (0-24) in the ninth over and at halfway mark, the hosts were positioned 76 for one. The shops in a one-mile area around the stadium were shut while fans had to park their vehicles a few miles from the venue from where they were transported in media shuttles - first to a spot nearby and then to the stadium.

World XI captain Faf du Plessis hailed the series as a big step and success.

For Pakistan, Hasan Ali took two wickets while Imad Wasim, Imad Khan and Rumman Raees chipped in with a wicket each.

Du Plessis (13) was run out by a sharp piece of work by Shadab Khan whose direct hit found the skipper short of his ground despite a despairing dive. Overall, Pakistan put up an improved show with the ball to sail past World XI. His bowlers erred in their lengths and offered a lot of freebies.

Pakistan's innings centered around another partnership between Babar Azam and Ahmed Shehzad.

Still needing 33 runs off the last two overs, Perera and Amla took 20 off Sohail's 19th over that saw Shoaib Malik dropping the Sri Lankan left-hander's easy catch at long off.

In a similar situation, Younis Khan had already denied the invitation, but Misbah-ul-Haq was seen watching the match together with Afridi in Lahore.

Earlier, Pakistan's top order batsmen couldn't convert good starts after captain Sarfraz Ahmed won the toss and opted to bat first.

"This clearly demonstrates the unity within the cricket family as well as the cricket fraternity's long-standing resolve to help one of its key members which has been unable to host worldwide cricket since 2009 for no fault of its own".
