World XI squad to reach Pakistan on Monday for T20 series

First T-20 between Pakistan & World XI to be played in Lahore on Tuesday

Mohammad Amir's wait to play an worldwide game in Pakistan is likely to continue with the seamer and his wife expecting a child in the coming week. "We look forward to providing premiere sporting action with an unparalleled viewing experience to our viewers on SONY MAX and the rest of the network in the United Kingdom".

The first two T-20I matches will be played in Abu Dhabi, followed by the third T-20I to take place in Lahore in continuation with the return of worldwide cricket following World XI tour to Pakistan.

Pakistan has been playing their home games in the UAE due to security since 2009 when the Sri Lanka national team bus was attacked by terrorist gunmen.

Multiple requests from Pakistan and an assured sense of security finally urged the International Cricket Council (ICC) to send a World XI team led by the South African skipper, Faf du Plessis.

Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed was excited about the arrival of global cricketers in Pakistan.

And now the PCB has invited Imran - who is undoubtedly one of the greatest players to have played the game - to watch the World XI games which is indeed a fine gesture of the board's part.

Saudi Arabia as well as the United Arab Emirates, Egypt and Bahrain cut ties with Qatar in June, accusing it of bankrolling Islamist extremist groups.

"The World XI is coming and people in Pakistan love cricket a lot".

Sammy, thanks to his fond memories, has also been a driving force in convincing his World XI teammates to not be even a slight bit anxious over security situation in Pakistan.

"I can assure all Pakistan cricket fans that we have missed playing in front of them", Ahmed said.

ICC World XI represented by seven countries have started preparations for the tour of Pakistan with a two-day camp at Dubai Sports City Cricket Stadium. We have the best security team, and they have also briefed the players.

This year, though, Amir picked up the pace yet again and his 6/44 helped Pakistan in registering a historic Test series win over West Indies.
