Pakistan win Independence Cup against World XI

The third and series-deciding T20 global between Pakistan and World XI will be played at Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore on Friday.

Meanwhile, in an interview with Geo News during the final match between Pakistan and World XI, Misbah said, "You need to leave things on a good note with your organization, your team and all the people you have worked with". Shehzad reached his fifty off 37 deliveries and struck three consecutive sixes in the 18th over to help Pakistan seize the momentum that they lost a bit in the middle.

Pakistan's total of 183/4 revolved around a century stand between Ahmed Shehzad (89) and Babar Azam (48) after World XI captain Faf du Plessis won the toss and opted to field first. Ben Cutting was the next to go as Hasan Ali uprooted his middle stump for 5 and that opened the floodgates.

Still needing 33 runs off the last two overs, Perera and Amla took 20 off Sohail's 19th over that saw Shoaib Malik dropping the Sri Lankan left-hander's easy catch at long off.

Paris, LA will host Olympics
It will be the third time that Los Angeles hosts the Olympics , with the first two happening in 1932 and 1984. Paris is set to take its place alongside London as the only three-time hosts of the Summer Games in 2024.

Report, 2nd T20I: Hashim Amla smashed a half century and Thisara Perera provided an excellent finish with a 19-ball 47 as World XI defeated Pakistan by seven wickets in the second Twenty20 worldwide on Wednesday.

With 44 runs required from 12 balls, and with only two wickets remaining, Pakistan was in complete control.

For Pakistan, pacer Hasan Ali was the most successful bowler with two wickets for 28 while Rumman Raees, Usman Khan Shinwari and Imad Wasim claimed one wicket each. "All of us (players) feel secure", Elliot was quoted as saying by Geo News ahead of the final T20 match of the Independence Cup. It's the only (cricket-playing) country I hadn't been to, but now I can say I've played cricket in Pakistan.

"Dave has said that, InshaAllah, he will bring the West Indies team to Pakistan for a three-match tour late November", he explained. Due to the aggressive bating of Ahmed Shehzad, Pakistan has made the winning score. "The tremendous interest of the people in the event is the proof that Pakistanis are a peaceful nation", he said. Hopefully, Pakistan will play Test cricket at home again.
