T20 Series World XI in Pakistan – Schedule, Tickets

Lahore to host T20 series: Pakistan versus World XI in September 2017

T20 Series vs World XI in Lahore, Pakistan

World XI will play three Twenty20s in Pakistan

In what came as a good news for Pakistan cricket and Pakistan Super League fans, ICC have approved plans to send World XI team to Pakistan for T20 series in Lahore later this year. The overseas World XI players are being offered $10000 to play in Pakistan.

According to latest reports, Pakistan could well be all set to host an International XI in a three-match T20 series. More vitally, Australia’s former captain Michael Clarke and current South African opener Hashim Amla are rumoured to be involved in the International XI for the series. The three-match series between Pakistan XI and the International XI will be played between September 12-19.

The Pakistan Cricket Board is yet to get a security clearance from the Punjab government but if the series does go ahead, it might be given a special, full internationals status by the ICC. If that does happen, it would not only be a huge boost to cricket in the country but it will also push Pakistan’s cause to make a comeback as a host nation.

According to a Latest Update:

Players from the World XI side are being offered a whopping $100,000 apiece to travel to Pakistan to participate in this series against the Pakistan XI side. Also, former Zimbabwean captain and England coach Andy Flower is expected to coach the World XI team if things went to plan. However, the Federation of International Cricketers Association (FICA) could well decide on whether the series will go ahead as scheduled based on a report from security experts.

Speaking to a Pakistani TV channel, PCB chief Shahrayan Khan said former Zimbabwean captain and England coach Andy Flower will take over the same role with the International XI side and the likes of Hashim Amla, Michael Clarke, Luke Ronchi and Tim Paine could well be a part of the side.

Pakistan haven’t hosted internationals since a 2009 terror attack on the Sri Lankan national side, with only a tour by the Zimbabwe side in 2015 breaking that run of eight years.

The PCB did manage to host the PSL Final at Lahore in the second season where a few international cricketers had been happy to be a part and were afforded Z-security. There are talks of eight of the games in the third edition of the PSL to be held in Pakistan but the PSL schedule for the third season is yet to be released. The World XI vs Pakistan XI tickets, schedule and information for tickets will also be revealed soon and we will have all the updates on this site as usual.

Probable players from the World XI T20 squad: Michael Clarke (Australia), Hashim Amla (South Africa), Luke Ronchi (New Zealand), Tim Paine (Australia), Mahela Jayawardene (Sri Lanka)

More information on the World XI squad that will be in action will be released closer to the start of this tournament. More recently, in the PSL 2017 final, a total of six overseas cricketers had refused to tour the country including Kevin Pietersen, Luke Wright, Tymal Mills and Rilee Rossouw.

Among the players who visited Lahore for the PSL Final were Dawid Malan, Marlon Samuels, Darren Sammy, Chris Jordan, Morne van Wyk, Anamul Haque, Sean Ervine and Rayad Emrit. The Peshawar Zalmi won the tournament by beating the Quetta Gladiators in a historic final.

 

The ICC has planned to host this series in order to kick-start a process through which international cricket can be reintroduced in the country after the 2009 terror attacks had left it starved of international cricket for all these years. In recent times, only Zimbabwe has toured Pakistan for an international series, but even that news is now two years old. Last year, the PSL final was played in Pakistan while there are talks that about eight games will be held in Pakistan this season of the PSL.

Pakistan XI vs World XI T20 Match Schedule

    Hi All Members,
    Am Raaz from India,
    I Love to read all the comments, really it’s a good sign for Pakistan that World XI will play matches there.
    Why you people think that Indian Player like Virat, MS, Rohit, Dhawan, ..etc will not attend the match which will be host in Pakistan?
    I want to share a honest thing is All Indian Player have real interest to play a game there in Pakistan, But due to security issue and border tension, max. players don’t have interest to play a game there, It’s a sad situation i guess bcoz. around 8 years all Pakistani cricket fans are unable to see a grt match in their stadium between Pakistan and other nations, but can anyone deeply understand who is responsible for this sad situation, i guess your govt. and security personnel, why don’t you people appeal against your govt. for that sad situation?
    i want to give you all a example…. Mumbai terror attack was happened in the year 2008, after all 2011 world cup hosted by India (maximum matches played in India).. why? After terror attack in 2008 security system inside India was very very tight and govt. helps a lot regarding this, so i request you people to appeal and strongly Protest this thing against Terrorism and request your govt. to take best possible action against them. Because for this reason Pakistan unable to host a international match in their home ground. If Pakistan Team touring to Srilanka and same incidence happens with them, Then do you people think,,, how you all will be hurt?
    Thanks..
    Raaz
