ICC remains committed to Pakistan, could facilitate T20 series against World XI

DUBAI: International Cricket Council is now exploring from the “security and budget perspective” the possibility of staging a T20 series involving a World XI team in Pakistan, as part of its commitment to see international cricket return to the country.

“The feasibility of further matches in Pakistan involving a World XI is now being considered from a security and budget perspective,” the world cricket body said in a statement.

The International Cricket Council had sent a team to carry out inspection around the PSL final.

 “The ICC Board has considered an update following the ICC delegation to the PSL final in Lahore as part of its commitment to support the return of international bilateral cricket to Pakistan as long as it is safe for players, officials, media and fans.”

The four-match series at Lahore’s Gaddafi Stadium is intended to continue the reintroduction of top-level cricket to the country after a near eight-year break.
