Independence Cup Live Streaming, Scores: Pakistan vs World XI T20
This was the case for Pakistan as well until the tragic events of March 3 2009 when the Sri Lankan cricketers were the target of a terrorist attack on the third day of the second Test in Lahore.
"For all the players [in the World XI side] it is about helping Pakistan get global cricket back in their country which is also important for world cricket", Amla had said during a media interaction in Dubai.
With the improving security situation in Pakistan and favourable assessments by security experts, it is now deemed an injustice to keep Pakistan off the global tour destination list.

An unprecedented security greeting the side, to be led by South African captain Faf du Plessis, at the Allama Iqbal International airport. The matches are scheduled to start at 7:30 pm (IST).

"It's great to be here", Andy Flower, the World XI coach and former Zimbabwe captain, said. I don't know, probably I am a local and grew up here so I think different from others but for me it is absolutely fine by me.
"So look I can't see any problems, what I see and what I be hearing has positive vibe about this thing".
When asked about the home team's batting lineup, Sarfraz acknowledged that since he became captain, the T20 squad has consisted mainly of young players. I supported this cause and actually encouraged people to support this cause.
He added: "It's exciting to be playing cricket in Pakistan and also making a difference and playing a small part in bringing cricket back to Pakistan".
