  • The farewell ceremony will be hosted by the Pakistan Cricket Board

It has rightly been commented that the World XI players might have lost the Independence Cup on the pitch, but they are not going home empty-handed as their fine performance, words of praise for Pakistan and its cricket fandom have won them millions of hearts in a cricket-loving nation.

Sami further said that the level of confidence has increased significantly in the last few years, but added that the complete return of worldwide cricket in Pakistan is going to be a gradual and slow process.

In 2009, eight people were killed when a bus carrying the Sri Lanka team was sacked upon by gunmen before the third day of the second test in Lahore.

More than 200 latest CCTV cameras have been installed on the ways that lead to Gaddafi stadium, the venue and live streaming of CCTV cameras was monitored by Safe City Authority.

Several thousand security officials, including armed soldiers, guarded the stadium and the team hotel. Officers of intelligence agencies and snipers were also being deployed. "The main objective is to try to build confidence in the likes of the Australians, South Africans and other countries that the threat can be managed and this tour has shown that".

Gaddafi stadium lived up again, there were huge lines for the purchase of tickets.

"They were so pleased, saying thank you, and they were so excited by the players being there". There was energy don't get me wrong - Collingwood, who has played in Lahore before, thought the crowd's intensity was high.




"We welcomed them in a memorable way and we are here to cherish the achievements of our great players besides watching a thrilling match", they added. "It didn't feel odd at all".

The likes of Darren Sammy were paid up to $50,000 for the PSL final. On the 15th September 2017 West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) President Dave Cameron has announced that the West Indies team will visit Pakistan in November for a three-match T20 series.

Overjoyed at the upcoming tours, Sethi informed that Sri Lanka has also green-lighted playing single T20 global on October 29 in Lahore. The upcoming visits of West Indies and SriLankan teams will pave a way for other teams to visit Pakistan.

Afridi took the lap of honour during the innings break. The two were given a standing ovation by a packed 25,000 crowd.

Former Pakistan skipper Misbah Ul- Haq and Shahid Afridi made their presence felt on the ground.

The series between Pakistan and World XI has garnered a lot of hype and interest.
