Pakistan vs World XI, PAK vs WXI T20: Pakistan beat World XI by 20 runs to lead three-match series 1-0. Boosted by Babar Azam’s 86, Pakistan posted a strong 197 runs after being put in to bat by World XI captain Faf du Plessis. None of the World XI batsmen could stay in the middle for long as they kept falling at regular intervals. Hashim Amla, Tim Paine, Faf du Plessis and Darren Sammy all reached 20s but couldn’t go beyond that and help the team in chase of the large total. Sohail Khan, Rumman Raees and Shadab Khan picked up two wickets each to chip away and arrest any development that the World XI made. Earlier, Pakistan enjoyed a 122 run stand courtesy Azam and Ahmed Shehzad for the second wicket. Shoaib Malik too added some pivotal runs to further the score. The win gives Pakistan a 1-0 series lead with the second T20I to be played on Wednesday in Lahore.

      Fraud. Thus is fraud. Playing with low level players and calling World them XI. Pa kistanis talk bombastic. Like "our space program is at a advance level". Our JF fighter is altering the dynamics of world airforce. "Our scientific are at par with the best or better in the world. And so fourth. And then they beg for aid. Please keep this Pa kistanis out of India cricket. They are are salivating at our billions of dollars. They are hungry and greedy.

        For all the RSS/Modi bakhts....if you now sabotage our cricket, maybe we lose a few millions. But don't cry later when your IPL faces the same fate and you lose billions. For every act of terrorism you and your chaddis Afghanis do in our country, it will be reciprocated with Interest back.

          Where is World XI? It is grade 3 class assembly of mostly South African cricketers, one 4th grade Sri Lankan and rest finished boys.
