ICC to allocate cricket event to Pakistan in couple of years

New Zealand's Grant Elliott, who is now in Pakistan to play the T20 series for World XI, said he found security in the Asian nation as "amazing". The reports also say that the PCB is handing out approximately $100,000 to each player in the World XI squad while the rest of the amount will be going for logistics. In his innings, he hit eight fours and three maximums as he picked the gaps and hit boundaries at will. The hosts won the opening game by 20 runs before the visitors bounced back to secure a seven-wicket win in a last-over thriller.

Update: Pakistan defeat World XI by 33 runs to clinch the Independence Cup.

The World XI side, led by South Africa limited-overs skipper Faf du Plessis, boast of quite a few superstars. Otherwise, Pakistan play most matches in the UAE, where they had shifted base since the unfortunate attack.

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

Both teams have secured a single victory in the three-match Twenty20 (T20) series, while the event today is of enormous significance as the winning team of the event would clinch the series trophy.

"The ICC has already agreed to invest in security and improving the security capabilities for a three-year period", said Richardson, further adding that he would like to see other countries sending their teams to Pakistan.

Security fears with militants disturbing the peace at regular intervals had forced foreign teams to stay away from Pakistan.

The World XI stumbled in its reply to 5-67 by the 10th over.

While disclosing that the ongoing Independence Cup would not be a profitable venture, Pakistan Cricket Board chairman Najam Sethi said the activity was the first step towards reviving global cricket which would help gradually improve PCB's finances in future contests.

He informed that Sri Lanka has also confirmed to play a lone T20 worldwide on October 29 in Lahore.
