Over 20 World XI 177/7/No

That wraps up the formalities of this game. There was enough entertainment and let's hope there is more to come in the games to follow. Also hoping that we have a full house as the stadium wasn't packed to capacity today although the crowd was enthusiastic. The next T20I is on 13th September, 2017 at the same venue. World XI will be keen to bounce back with a bang. Tune in at 1900 local, 1400 GMT for all the action. Till then, it's goodbye from us. Cheers!
Pakistan skipper, Sarfraz Ahmed is happy at his team's victory. Praises his teammates, especially Azam for his knock. Opines that it was a good all-round show from Pakistan in this game. Expresses joy at the emergence of the young talents and adds that the experience of playing in front of home crowd should boost the morale further. Admits that the team's fitness has improved and hopes it continues. Ends by thanking the crowd and the PCB for all the support.
World XI skipper, Faf du Plessis feels that it was a good game and praises Pakistan for the performance. Opines that 180 was a par score and states that the hosts' attack used their variations well on the track. Rues the lack of partnerships from his side and feels that the batsmen who got starts could have kicked on. Feels that it was a good atmosphere to play cricket. Hopes that his side can bounce back in the next game. Praises the crowd for the vocal support.
Man of the Match, Babar Azam feels that clarity in mindset helps him to be consistent in T20s. States that all the hard work in the nets has paid off. Shrugged off talks about pressure despite facing World XI and states that the talk with Shehzad was to bat deep into the innings.
A collective performance from Pakistan's bowlers with the spinners in particular doing a brilliant job. The pacers also cleverly used the surface as they dished out more of the slower delivery assortment to stifle the scoring rate. In the end, they had enough on the board to win convincingly. It was a Babar Azam masterclass earlier in the evening that set up the Pakistan total which proved too much for the visitors. A good comeback for international cricket in Pakistan. The home side have won and that's an icing on the cake for the crowd.
Comfortable win for Pakistan! The target was always going to tough for the World XI but they had a batting line up that dug deep and had power hits in plenty. Amla and du Plessis got breezy starts but couldn't convert while Paine struggled to get going. As the pressure mounted, the middle order succumbed to the pressure and Sammy's big hits came too late in the piece to affect the result.
19.6
H Ali to D Sammy, FOUR! Boundary to finish but it's the hosts who have prevailed. Sammy looks to go big but gets a thick inside edge that races down to the fine leg fence. Sammy shakes hands with Hasan Ali. PAKISTAN WIN BY 20 RUNS.
Ben Cutting is the new man in.
19.5
H Ali to D Sammy, OUT! Mix up and Perera departs! On a length outside off, Sammy steers it through point and they get a single. Confusion on the second run and Perera is late to get back to the non-striker's end. The bails are whipped off and he is well short.
19.4
H Ali to T Perera, On a length outside off, dabbed to the off side for a single.
19.3
H Ali to D Sammy, Very full and outside off, drilled down to long off for a single. The crowd has started to shout out loud as the result is now sealed. It was virtually beyond doubt during the last over or so actually.
19.2
H Ali to D Sammy, What a response from Hasan Ali! Excellent yorker on off stump and Sammy is down on the ground as he tries to dig it out. Hasan is his PSL teammate and walks up to the West Indian to help him get up.
19.1
H Ali to D Sammy, SIX! THAT'S GONE OVER THE ROPES! 6 biggies needed to win the game and Sammy has got one out of them. Shortish in length and he swivels to pull it over deep backward square leg for a flat maximum. Good power!

Over 19 World XI 164/6/No

18.6
R Raees to D Sammy, Leg bye! Fuller and around leg stump, Sammy misses the flick and it struck on the pads as the ball rolls to the off side. Stifled lbw shout but pitching outside leg. A leg bye taken.
18.5
R Raees to D Sammy, SIX! HAMMERED! Raees is getting predictable now. Another slower ball on a good length and Sammy pummels it down the ground. Clears long on with ease. These hits have come too late in the game for the visitors.
18.4
R Raees to D Sammy, Doesn't connect well! Waits on the slower shortish ball and gets a bottom edge on the slog that goes to the keeper.
18.3
R Raees to D Sammy, SIX! SMASHED! Sammy has had enough of the slower ball diet and this time waits forever before clubbing it over a leaping deep mid-wicket fielder. Maximum! World XI a flurry of these in this over to stay alive.
18.2
R Raees to D Sammy, Short ball and Sammy ducks under it. Thought he may get a wide but doesn't. DOT BALL!
18.1
R Raees to D Sammy, Slower ball outside off, Sammy tries to have a go at it but misses.

Over 18 World XI 151/6/No

Rumman Raees has a change of ends.
17.6
H Ali to D Sammy, Very full and around off stump, Sammy bludgeons it down the ground but straight to the long off fielder. Just a single again.
17.5
H Ali to D Sammy, Beaten! Full and wide outside off stump, Sammy tries to launch it out of the park but doesn't make contact.
17.4
H Ali to T Perera, Another slower ball and this time Perera drags it off the inner half to the leg side. Just a single.
17.3
H Ali to T Perera, And again! Clever from Ali, he knows that Perera loves the leg side and so spears this outside off with no pace on it. Play and a miss once more.
17.2
H Ali to T Perera, Beaten! Slower ball outside off stump, Perera looks to hoick across the line but is foxed by the lack of pace.
17.1
H Ali to D Sammy, Length ball on off stump, Sammy's bat swing comes down hard on the bat but ends up dragging it to deep mid-wicket. Just a single.

Over 17 World XI 148/6/No

Hasan Ali is back on. 50 needed from 18. This over has to be a big one for the World XI to stay afloat in the game.
16.6
S Khan to D Sammy, Straighter in line and Sammy clips it on the leg side for a single.
16.5
S Khan to T Perera, Another full ball attacking the stumps, smeared down to long on for a run.
16.4
S Khan to D Sammy, Fuller outside off, drilled to long off for a single.
Darren Sammy walks out to bat.
16.3
S Khan to G Elliott, OUT! Soft dismissal! Fuller ball outside off, Elliott tries to go big over the infield but hits it straight to Wasim who pouches it at mid off. Another slower ball that does the trick for the hosts. There have been far too many of those today from the Pakistan bowlers. Read the pitch well.
16.2
S Khan to G Elliott, Good effort by Hasan Ali! Saves a couple for his side. Fuller outside off and Elliott crunches it straight down the ground. Long off and long on converge on it before Hasan Ali stationed at the former region manages to stop it with a slide. They check it upstairs but it's a good effort.
They are going upstairs to check if the effort near the fence is clean.
16.1
S Khan to G Elliott, FOUR! Streaky but they all count! Momentum into the innings now. Elliott tries to go big but gets a thick inside edge that beats short fine leg. Another boundary, four in a row now for the visitors. Pakistan need to hold their nerve here.

Over 16 World XI 139/5/No

15.6
R Raees to T Perera, FOUR! 3 IN A ROW!
15.5
R Raees to T Perera, FOUR! Better shot! Fuller ball around off, cannot bowl that length with mid off in the ring and Raees suffers. It's hammered back past him by Perera and the ball rockets to the fence. He can be lethal if he gets going.
15.4
R Raees to T Perera, FOUR! Finds the fence! Perera's favorite stroke, the slog fetches him a boundary. Didn't quite middle it that well but dragged it into the gap on the leg side. Bisects the fielders near the ropes to perfection.
15.4
R Raees to T Perera, Wide! The slower bouncer and Perera withdraws from the stroke. Wide given for height.
15.3
R Raees to G Elliott, On a shortish length around middle, tucked towards backward square leg. Just a single. Getting really hard for the World XI now.
15.2
R Raees to T Perera, Slower ball this time around middle, helped through mid-wicket for a single.
15.1
R Raees to T Perera, Play and a miss! Perera tries to slog across the line to the shorter length but misses.
