Pakistan announce 16-man squad for T20Is vs World XI

25 Août 2017

If the World XI tour goes off without problems, Pakistan hope Sri Lanka will also play a Twenty20 in Lahore in October - a match which will be hugely symbolic for the return of global cricket - followed by a three-match Twenty20 series against West Indies in November.

World XI (squad): Faf du Plessis (capt), Hashim Amla, Samuel Badree, George Bailey, Paul Collingwood, Ben Cutting, Grant Elliott, Tamim Iqbal, David Miller, Morne Morkel, Tim Paine, Thisara Perera, Imran Tahir and Darren Sammy.

Addressing a press conference in Lahore, Najam Sethi said that South African Test captain Faf du Plessis will lead the World XI against Pakistan.

Richardson said: "The ICC wants to see regular worldwide cricket being played safely in all its Member countries and the World XI playing Pakistan in Lahore next month is a step towards that for the PCB".

"This home series against a World XI could not have been better timed", said Waqar.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) has welcomed the World XI's tour of Pakistan following the naming of the team who will travel to Lahore in September and confirmation that the three game series will go ahead. However, Zimbabwe and Afghanistan played one series each in this phase.

Richardson, who has been a regular visitor to Pakistan, said: "The ICC wants to see regular global cricket being played safely in all its Member countries and the World XI playing Pakistan in Lahore next month is a step towards that for the PCB".

But Macron is hardly alone among French leaders when it comes to lavish spending to maintain an image. He's the youngest head of state since Napoleon, and was elected in with a comfortable lead in May.

One player each from England, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and New Zealand.

Former Zimbabwe captain and ex-England coach Andy Flower will be the coach of the side, which will arrive in Lahore on September 11 after attending a two-day camp in Dubai. "In this background, we will land in Lahore with nothing except cricket in our minds". Pakistan has hosted all its worldwide matches in the neutral venue of the United Arab Emirates since.

The series against World XI will be Pakistan's first outing since the 2017 Champions Trophy success, but more than the action on the field, what the PCB will be hoping for is a vote of confidence from the players who will turn out for the World XI.

"I think that 10 Test playing nations are like a family".

Giles Clarke, the ICC Director, who has served as the Chairman of the Pakistan Task Team since 2009, was optimistic that the series will be the first step towards global cricket returning safely to Pakistan with more T20 worldwide matches against Sri Lanka and the Windies penciled in for later in the year.

"I would like to congratulate Mr. Giles Clarke, Chairman of ICC's Pakistan Task Force, for helping facilitate the revival of global cricket in Pakistan".
