World T20 Champions all set for Pakistan tour

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.

Pakistani policemen patrol on horses around the Gaddafi Cricket Stadium in Lahore on September 15, 2017 before the start of the third and final Twenty20 worldwide match between the World XI and Pakistan.

They said these are small steps of Pakistan towards the safe and steady revival of bilateral global cricket.

He also added; "I just loved seeing emotions on people's faces, that's the thing that stands out for me", he said when asked about his fondest memory of the tour, adding that he also loved the food in Pakistan. After the 2009 attack on Sri Lankan team, only Zimbabwe toured the country for a bilateral series in 2015.

Du Plessis was one of five South Africa players in World XI, along with Hashim Amla, David Miller, Morne Morkel and Imran Tahir.

"They were so pleased, saying thank you, and they were so excited by the players being there. We got some food delivered at the hotel, and we had some good time to spend together as a team, so that's wasn't an issue at all", said Faf.

"When I first thought of coming, obviously there was little bit of nervousness within myself", he said.

The likes of Darren Sammy were paid up to $50,000 for the PSL final.

The presence of CWI chief Dave Cameron at the Gaddafi stadium on Friday in company of PCB chief Najam Sethi all but confirms that the Caribbean side will undertake the visit in November.

Overjoyed at the upcoming tours, Sethi informed that Sri Lanka has also green-lighted playing single T20 global on October 29 in Lahore.

Though the demands rose to a crescendo regarding the revival of cricket in the country in few years but the successful Pakistan Super League final in Lahore gave a major boost to the perception of normalisation of law and order situation in the country in March. The upcoming visits of West Indies and SriLankan teams will pave a way for other teams to visit Pakistan.

Former captain Misbah-ul-Haq was also giving a farewell reception.

Afridi took the lap of honour during the innings break. Along with him Shahid Afridi too was on the ground.
