Pakistan vs World XI Cricket Highlights Today on 12 September 2017

Watch highlights of the first T20 played between Pakistan and World Eleven on 12-9-2017. PAK vs WXI highlights. Gaddafi Stadium hosted PSL final earlier this year and it was start of a new era for Pakistan cricket that was doomed after terrorists attacked Sri Lankan team many years ago in 2009. Now World XI has arrived in Pakistan which is a big step towards bringing cricket back to Pakistan. If this tournament continues without any trouble, it will definitely force international cricket to consider Pakistan a safe country.

Toss: World XI won the toss and elected to field.

Captain of South African T20 team, Faf du Plessis will lead World XI while Sarfraz Ahmed will captain Pakistan’s squad. Ahead of the first match, du Plessis said, “It’s not every day you get an opportunity to play in something that is much more than just about yourself and your own team or your own country.”

He is right. This is about cricket above all. Misbah-ul-Haq had taken Pakistan to No. 1 in Tests without leading his team on own soil. They were forced to shift base to UAE, a place that witnesses only a handful of spectators. The only noise that echoed the stadiums was that of the modern-day commentators. Cricket, more than ever, needs Pakistan to host international games. The players who envisaged boasting of the green jersey in their own country, deserve to live their dream. We must now thank ICC for the wonderful initiative.
