West Indies set to tour Pakistan for T20 series

Australia sees no tour to Pakistan 'in short term'

After the successful completion of the Independence Cup which saw the return of worldwide cricket to Pakistan after a long hiatus, the dust starts to settle on the euphoria generated by the visit of the ICC World XI. "It is great. The hospitality, the support from the crowds at the ground".

The last series in Pakistan was against the Zimbabweans in May 2015.

Sami further said that the level of confidence has increased significantly in the last few years, but added that the complete return of global cricket in Pakistan is going to be a gradual and slow process.

"We welcomed them in a memorable way and we are here to cherish the achievements of our great players besides watching a thrilling match", they added. The PCB has had to rely on heavy financial incentives for the visiting players to draw them to the country so far.

"They were just delighted to be here, they were happy to be part of this series and happy to be part of the revival of global cricket because everyone realises that world cricket needs a very strong Pakistan team", he said.

Since then, the only worldwide team to visit Pakistan was Zimbabwe, which played five limited-overs games in Lahore in 2015. The World XI coach praised the security arrangements in Lahore, saying that the security plan made the players feel secure over the course of their trip to the country. Now, the next steps have to be taken, meaning can they be rolled out in more than one city over a longer period of time.

Pakistani spectators hold placards at the Gaddafi Cricket Stadium in Lahore on September 15, 2017 before the start of the third and final Twenty20 global match between the World XI and Pakistan.

That the series went down smoothly without any incident is a testament to the efforts put in by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and the ICC.
