Editor's Pick (T20): Pakistan - World XI

ICC World XI is here in Pakistan. They are gonna play three T-20 matches. It has been way too long since Pakistan has hosted an international cricket team. This tournament is very good for Pakistan. What happened was not only unfortunate but quite senseless at that. Pakistan is now welcoming top level cricket with open arms. Pakistan loves the game too much to let anything come between them and the game. This is also the time for fresh talent to see the day of light. This is really good for them. The word out there is to help restore international cricket in the country.
