It did looked like Pakistan might finish the series at one point when World XI had lost Faf Du Plessis. But Thisara Perera started freeing his arms. Perera’s free wheeling innings, coupled with the shoddy fielding effort from the home side towards the end of the match, meant that World XI managed to win with seven wickets and a ball in hand. It means now that the final match will be a decider. One thing is for sure, the cricket parched crowd of Pakistan got their fill at the Gaddafi stadium. It was a match that had plenty of drama. Their team may not have won, but few would be complaining after the fireworks that came of Thisara Perera’s bat.
