Global cricket back in Pakistan

"I think we all owe a big thanks to these worldwide cricketers, the global cricket community, the ICC and the PCB for taking this positive step", said Afridi.

Hafeez, Kamran and Riaz were part of Pakistan's squad for the tour of the West Indies in March this year but didn't fare well. Also, Sri Lanka and West Indies are more or less confirmed to visit the country for bilateral series.

Global cricket is all set to resume in Pakistan as they gear up for three Twenty20 worldwide matches against World XI.

The World XI for the Independence Cup is: Faf du Plessis (captain) (South Africa), Hashim Amla (South Africa), Samuel Badree (Windies), George Bailey (Australia), Paul Collingwood (England), Ben Cutting (Australia), Grant Elliott (New Zealand), Tamim Iqbal (Bangladesh), David Miller (South Africa), Morne Morkel (South Africa), Tim Paine (wicketkeeper) (Australia), Thisara Perera (Sri Lanka), Imran Tahir (South Africa) and Darren Sammy (Windies).

The World XI players are expected to make 75,000 United Kingdom pounds from the series.

Pakistan cricket board have also announced the strong Pakistan squad for those three twenty20 matches having worldwide status.

Plessis in a statement issued by the PCB said that he was honoured to have been appointed as captain of such a diverse, attractive and well-balanced side. "All the members of the squad have complete faith and trust in the assessment and judgment of the security experts, who have assured us that there will be no compromise on the safety and security of all those involved in the series".

"We all should be grateful to the players and the ICC for ensuring that the series takes place", said Ramiz. Former Zimbabwe captain and ex-England coach Andy Flower will coach the side, which is set to arrive in Lahore on September 11 after attending a two-day camp in Dubai, said the PCB.

Moreover, Inzamam added that performing in front of a home crowd would be a confidence booster for young players.

"I'm very glad to see so many players agree to tour Pakistan for this series", pace legend Wasim Akram was quoted as saying by the PCB.

Richardson, who has been a regular visitor to Pakistan, 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". Pakistan has hosted all its worldwide matches in the neutral venue of the United Arab Emirates since.
