Pakistan wins independence cup against World XI

Paul Collingwood is relishing the opportunity of playing for World XI at the age of 41

"We strongly believe that this (hosting of World XI team) would be a step forward towards building confidence of the sporting community", he said addressing a press conference alongside Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Najam Sethi in Lahore.

In the second T20I between the ICC World XI and Pakistan, the mixture of players from the different country had a win over the host nation by seven wickets.

Ben Cutting (5) was castled by Hasan Ali (2-28) while Amla was run out as World XI reached 43 for three in the powerplay.

Pakistan had piled up 183-4 after they were sent into bat by World Xi skipper Faf du Plessis. But this is sure that the most loved game by the Pakistani people will come back to their country.

A few months ago West Indies were also certain to tour Pakistan but Federation of International Cricketers' Association (FICA) had warned against letting the players to tour Pakistan. One of the reasons why many South Africans are in this team is because they haven't been playing recently.

Sethi said Sri Lanka had also agreed to play a one-off T20 worldwide in Lahore on October 29, though he was still holding out hope for two matches. "This series has reduced the suffocation as nearly every Pakistani enjoyed watching the cricket", said Mudassir Hussain, a 22-year old cricket lover. The World XI players were given a ride in colourful rickshaws for a lap of honour.

Paul Collingwood says he feels like a "kid at Christmas" to be playing worldwide cricket again and has praised the level of security for the World XI players on their brief trip to Pakistan.

"We can empathize with Pakistan, because the problems Pakistan is facing in arranging these tours, we face similar circumstances back home", Cameron said.

Former New Zealand batsman Grant Elliott, part of the World XI squad on Pakistan tour on Friday said that the security arrangement is "amazing" and hoped to see the return of Test cricket to the country.

On the other hand, World XI can opt for George Bailey, the former Australian limited-overs captain to strenthen the middle order.

Cricket ties have also taken a hit as India and Pakistan have not played a bilateral series since December 2012.
