World T20 Champions all set for Pakistan tour

Australia sees no tour to Pakistan 'in short term'

Former Pakistan captains, Misbah-ul-Haq and Shahid Afridi were given standing ovation by a full house for their illustrious services for Pakistan cricket during the third and the last T20 worldwide match of the independence Cup here on Friday night.

"The way Pakistani people and the crowd - particularly at this ground - cheered for us at the end of the second game, which we won beating the home team, made us feel right at home", Flower explained.

However, he was not sure whether a short tour by a World XI could convince his country to resume playing bilateral cricket in Pakistan. "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". "I don't see in the short term there are any plans for us to play in Pakistan" he added.

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

Sri Lanka have agreed to visit Pakistan for one match at the end of September and West Indies are planning to send a team later in the year, Sethi said.


Recently, the World XI also played three T20s in Lahore with the host side clinching the series by 2-1. "Everything was very smooth and very easy and we say thank you for that". Now, the next steps have to be taken, meaning can they be rolled out in more than one city over a longer period of time. The cricketer even appreciated the hospitality he received in Pakistan.

The likes of Darren Sammy were paid up to $50,000 for the PSL final.

That the series went down smoothly without any incident is a testament to the efforts put in by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and the ICC.

After the great 3- matches other countries have also started thinking about sending their players to Pakistan after watching a full-proof security.
