"Everybody here has accepted that they are part of something more important than just themselves. To me, it's a place where I have a great connection and going back there, like I said through the PSL final, to bring cricket back to Pakistan, if we can be part of history, a greater purpose, it's a wonderful opportunity" - Darren Sammy, the two-time World T20 winning skipper.

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.

After two years, International cricket will return to Pakistan with World XI arriving to play a 3-match T20I series

"It is lovely to be back here and catch up with the family. But more importantly, we are here for a greater cause," says an elated Imran Tahir. "I was born and brought up here, so it's probably easier for me than other guys."

Cutting to Ahmed Shehzad, out Caught by Sammy!! He's such a dear thing. Sammy runs in at deep backward square and takes it with a dive in front. A swivel pick-up from Ahmed Shehzad, that admittedly was timed well off his pads, but just managed to place it too well.

Ahmed Shehzad c Sammy b Cutting 39(34) [4s-3]

T20 I

ICC approved

Narper 2017-09-12 12:15:25 

Raees to Amla, out Caught by Imad Wasim!! Eaten up by the lack of pace on that ball. Amla is early in his loft that's intended to clear the off-side infield, and chips it straight to extra cover. Falls last ball of the powerplay too!

Amla c Imad Wasim b Raees 26(17) [4s-4 6s-1]

The PCB will end up spending anywhere between US$ 2.5-3 million for the staging of the three-match T20I series against World XI, as it bids to build on unprecedented international goodwill and bring more cricket back to Pakistan.

It a T20 I series....official....not exhibition games

Raees to Sammy, SIX, stand and deliver! Knew what was coming, stands back and wallops a slower ball high and handsome over long-on

Raees to Sammy, SIX, on the pads and goodbye. That's golfswung over mid-wicket

Narper 2017-09-12 13:15:14 

Hasan Ali to Sammy, SIX, short ball, sat up nicely for Sammy to flex his muscles and bludgeon it over backward square

Narper 2017-09-12 13:17:42 

Hasan Ali to Sammy, no run, yorker, would have uncorked the base of middle stump had Sammy missed. But he did well to jam his bat down and while doing so, lost his balance and fell flat on the floor. Hasan Ali strolls across and offers a helping hand to pick Sammy up off his feet

Narper 2017-09-12 13:18:09 

Hasan Ali to Sammy, out Thisara Perera Run Out!! 1 run completed. Yorker outside off Thisara Perera run out (Raees/Hasan Ali) 17(11) [4s-3]
