ICC okays World XI series in Pakistan

ICC okays World XI series in Pakistan”

The last time Indian team played on Pakistan spoil was in the 2008 Asia Cup.

But targets of around 200 now rarely present problems for leading women's sides, although this one did leave South Africa with a national record World Cup chase.

Plans for the full resumption of worldwide cricket in Pakistan moved forward when the sport's global governing body said it wanted to send a World XI to the country later this year.

The ICC board supported a proposal during its annual conference in London, as part of the efforts to take global cricket back in the country.

All the matches would take place in Lahore and be accorded full Twenty20 worldwide status, the ICC said, adding "further details will be announced in due course".

According to Geo News, the idea of sending a world XI team to Pakistan was presented by Giles Clarke, the head of Pakistan's Task Force Team in ICC after successful conduct of PSL final in Lahore earlier this year.

Sarfraz, who recently guided the men's team to their maiden ICC Champions Trophy title after beating India by 180 runs in the final at The Oval, sent his best wishes to the Girls in Green in a video message.

"So hopefully that starts paving the way for future tours".

PSL chairman Najam Sethi, had already disclosed on twitter that cricket would return to Pakistan citing the tour of World XI, days after conclusion of PSL that waded through controversies of match-fixing but remained successful overall.

Pakistan captain Sana Mir added: "I think it was a great effort by the girls, the way they fought it out".
