Independence Cup Live Streaming, Scores: Pakistan vs World XI T20
The World XI team features 14 players from seven top cricket-playing nations, led by South Africa's Faf du Plessis and coached by former Zimbabwe batsman and ex-England coach Andy Flower.
To the younger players, such as teenage leg-spinner Shadab Khan or the fast bowler Hasan Ali, this will be a first opportunity to showcase their talents in front of their home fans, on their home soil.
"We are big supporters of this whole cause". He said: "I just love watching other teams play and will follow the proceedings in Pakistan".
Cricket analysts and commentators have held this event of huge significance because the success of these matches would determine the revival of teams in Pakistan.
About team, the captain said: "Team is very good as it is a combination of experienced and young players". Pakistan are in an nearly festive mood as cricket has always been a sport that has been enjoyed there for many years.
Former Zimbabwe captain Andy Flower, who is the coach of the World XI, said he was proud to have been given the honour of being named as coach and the return of worldwide cricket to Pakistan should be celebrated. "That's the decision that powers may be, the boards, will make", he said.
But he said events such as the final of the popular Pakistan Super League in Lahore earlier this year had made the World XI tour possible. "We have come here with a positive mind and will go positively", said Tahir according to PakPassion.com.
"The last 24 hours were exciting because the excitement of last night is not something we as players get to do normally, getting on a private jet, being chauffeured away from the plane". We don't have to go far away for examples. "We felt like we were in a movie", he added.
Independence Cup is likely to be followed by Sri Lanka and West Indies tours to Pakistan in coming months if the global event proceeds successfully.
The much anticipated return of global cricket to Pakistan is nearly upon us as the hosts get ready to welcome the ICCWorld XI for a three-match T20I series.
Roads and shops will be closed around the 27,000-capacity venue, while spectators will have to pass through multiple security checkpoints.
Sri Lanka are set to make a hugely symbolic return to Lahore as part of a full series against Pakistan in October.
