Pakistan vs World XI, 3rd T20I, Lahore Pakistan vs World XI, 3rd T20I, Lahore

Pakistan coasted to a comfortable 33-run victory against a World XI in their decisive Twenty20 worldwide on Friday to clinch the three-match series 2-1.

The World XI were 106 for three at the end of the 14th - still requiring 69 runs from 36 deliveries - but Amla stroked five fours and two sixes while Perera belted five sixes in an unbroken fourth wicket stand to steer their side to a pulsating win.

After World XI won the toss and opting to field, bowlers failed to click as Pakistan's Ahmed Shazad (89) and Babar Azam (48) thrashed the visitors all around the park.

Ahmed Shahzad declared Man of the Match while Babar Azam got Man of the Series award.

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.

Now, more than three decades after those rebel tours started, some of South African's finest cricketers have been playing a leading role, this week, to break the barriers which have seen Pakistan unable to host worldwide cricket in its backyard since militants attacked the Sri Lankan cricket team in Lahore in 2009. It's the only (cricket-playing) country I hadn't been to, but now I can say I've played cricket in Pakistan.

On the very next ball, Hashim Amla was victim to the huge mix-up between him and du Plessis.

The World XI team and International Cricket Council (ICC) officials accompanying them will give their feedback to FICA which will hopefully convince them to allow players to tour Pakistan.

Shehzad fell 11 short of his second Twenty20 hundred as he attempted a single off a wide ball. Ben Cutting was the next victim of Ahmed Shehzad's onslaught as the in-form batsman slammed three consecutive sixes in the 18th over.

During the innings break the Pakistan cricket Board arranged a lap of honour for retired greats Shahid Afridi and Misbah-ul-Haq.

The officials of ICC made it clear that the revival of the global cricket in Pakistan will take some time because the tours by ICC member nations would all be linked to the usual security condition in the country.

Both the teams have won one match each.
