There’s exciting development in the world of cricket as efforts are being made to revive cricket in Pakistan. The ICC World XI squad has been announced for the T20 series to be played in the country in the month of September.
Zimbabwe’s Andy Flower has been nominated as Head Coach of World XI side. The 14-man squad will be led by South Africa’s Faf du Plessis as the side will play three t20 games at Lahore. The squad includes five players from South Africa, three players from Australia, two West Indies, one from England and Bangladesh.
Pakistan has suffered cricket isolation after terror attack on Sri Lanka team in 2009. The side has forced to play at neutral venues like UAE. West Indies and Sri Lanka have also given their nod to play a short-series in Pakistan in the upcoming months.
Squad: Faf du Plessis (c), Tamim Iqbal, David Miller, Tim Paine (wk), Ben Cutting, Grant Elliott, Thisara Perera, Hashim Amla, George Bailey, Paul Collingwood, Darren Sammy, Samuel Badree, Morne Morkel, Imran Tahir
