Former Pakistani cricketer Shahid Afridi is delighted to see cricket returning to the country. A World XI team is all set to play 3 T20Is against Pakistan next month. Afridi showed his happiness through a tweet and wished that Indian cricketers also participated in the series.

Shahid Afridi, who recently smashed his first ever century in T20 cricket while playing for Hampshire in NatWest T20 Blast, has all the reasons to be happy about the proceedings. The cricketers along with the fans of the country have been deprived of the game since 2009 when an unfortunate terror attack was carried out on the Sri Lankan cricket team bus.

Apart from Zimbabwe, no other team has traveled to Pakistan since and the national side has been forced to play their home matches in U.A.E. Dubai, Sharjah and Abu Dhabi have been hosting the home matches of Pakistan for a few years and so the World XI tour opens the door for more cricket in Pakistan.

Players from all parts of the world, except India, have been put together in a World XI team led by South Africa’s Faf du Plessis. Pakistan also announced the squad for the 3 matches to be played on September 12, 13 and 15. The Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore will be hosting all the 3 matches.

Pakistan squad

Sarfraz Ahmed (Captain/WK), Fakhar Zaman, Ahmed Shehzad, Baber Azam, Shoaib Malik, Umer Amin, Imad Wasim, Shadab Khan, Muhammad Nawaz, Faheem Ashraf, Hassan Ali, Amir Yamin, Muhammad Amir, Ruman Raees, Usman Shinwari, Sohail Khan

World XI squad

Faf du Plessis (South Africa) (C), Hashim Amla (South Africa), Samuel Badree (West Indies), George Bailey (Australia), Paul Collingwood (England), Ben Cutting (Australia), Grant Elliot (New Zealand), Tamim Iqbal (Bangladesh), David Miller (South Africa), Morne Morkel (South Africa), Tim Paine (wk) (Australia), Thisara Perera (Sri Lanka), Imran Tahir (South Africa), Darren Sammy (West Indies).
