Pakistan nation has won against terrorism:Miandad

Pakistan nation has won against terrorism:Miandad

Ever since the 2009 terrorist attack on the Sri Lankan team, only Zimbabwe and Afghanistan have toured the nation.

More importantly, to gain full confidence of the worldwide community, PCB should also take some practical steps to take cricket matches to other cities, mainly in Karachi and Rawalpindi - the two main centres for cricket in Pakistan, after Lahore.

"After World XI's tour, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) must ask International Cricket Council (ICC) to convince European teams to visit here", he said. The World XI levelled the series next day with a seven-wicket win on the same ground.

Also, given the strained political relations between the India and Pakistan, it was not surprising to see Indian players absent from the World XI side. Hopefully, Pakistan will play Test cricket at home again.

Shehzad played blistering innings of 89 runs (55) to put Pakistan in a commanding position.

World XI captain Faf du Plessis hailed the series as a big step and success.

Police raid in Cairo kills 10 militants
Egypt has been suffering from a spike in terrorist attacks targeting civilians in the mainland over the past year. Monday's attack came a day after authorities said they had busted an extremist cell planning attacks in Cairo .

On Friday, the World XI, chasing a target of 184, never got going as they could manage to score only 150/8 in their 20 overs.

Batting for World XI, only Thisara Perera, with a 13-ball 32 including three sixes and two fours, and David Miller, who hit a 29-ball 32, made significant contributions.

"I am still trying to convince Sri Lanka to play at least two matches in the coming series in Lahore", Sethi said. Already a T20 worldwide against Sri Lanka has been scheduled, subject to a security clearance and a three match T20 series against West Indies is also in the plans.

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

Fans have been clamouring for the return of worldwide cricket since March after the final of the domestic T20 Pakistan Super League (PSL) and finally, they've got what they want.

Sethi said Sri Lanka had also agreed to play a one-off T20 worldwide in Lahore on October 29, though he was still holding out hope for two matches.
