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 global cricket in its backyard since militants attacked the Sri Lankan cricket team in Lahore in 2009.

Pakistan: 1. Fakhar Zaman, 2.

Earlier, Shehzad and Azam added 102 runs off 57 balls for the second-wicket stand after Fakhar Zaman (27) provided Pakistan with a brisk start of 61 in front of a big crowd at the 25,000 capacity Gaddafi Stadium.

Batting first Pakistan scored 183 for the loss of four wickets in stipulated twenty overs. Ben Cutting was the next to go as Hasan Ali uprooted his middle stump for 5 and that opened the floodgates. Miller fell to a Hasan Ali ball.

The World XI chase was off-tracked after the experienced Hashim Amla (21) and Du Plessis (13) were both run out, as they lost wickets with regular intervals.

Oil Jumps To Monthly High As Gas Inventories Plummet
Brent crude, the global benchmark futures traded 0.7 per cent higher at $54.65 per barrel at the time of writing. Oil prices hung onto earlier gains as government data showed USA crude stocks rose sharply last week.

PCB is also in talks with Sri Lankan Cricket Board to stage the third T20 of the T20 series with Sri Lanka, due to be held in United Arab Emirates (UAE) in Lahore. In the next over Morkel was run out at just 1 and the World XI side was in heaps of trouble.

To the huge cheers of the jam-packed Gaddafi, Pakistan had won the match, but the World XI would leave Pakistan after winning the hearts of all cricket lovers in the country. This is the final match of the Independence Cup, the fans and people of Pakistan enjoying cricket after a long time.

Because of the ongoing decent T20I short series, the Sri Lanka and West Indies have reportedly agreed to play against Pakistan in their country in coming months. It's the only (cricket-playing) country I hadn't been to, but now I can say I've played cricket in Pakistan.

"We were a little sloppy today in the field", Ahmed said. "The tremendous interest of the people in the event is the proof that Pakistanis are a peaceful nation", he said. However, Lahore looks highly festive ahead of the match as the administration is decorating the routes with lights and posters carrying pictures of worldwide players.
