Darren Sammy, St Lucian, allrounder, twice world-champion captain, the nicest man in cricket, one of its most popular and now - as the World XI ventures to Pakistan for a potentially pathbreaking tour - Pakistan expert.

Sammy is one of five men in the World XI squad with experience of playing in Pakistan - Paul Collingwood, Tamim Iqbal and Hashim Amla have played international cricket there, while Imran Tahir's first-class career began in the country.

Sammy spoke to members of the squad as part of a security briefing on Saturday as they began arriving in Dubai, ahead of the flight out to Lahore on Sunday. The first of three T20Is is scheduled for Monday, at Gaddafi Stadium, the scene of Sammy's triumph earlier in the year

Live scenes: World XI players are doing a lap of honour on a tuk-tukish kinda vehicle. There's Tahir, Amla, Miller, Bailey, Elliott and Cutting that I can spot. Oh and two other tuk-tuks follow. Also, Sammy is in smiles. Who's surprised.
