Latest Pakistan v World XI Betting Tips for the first Independence Cup T20I will be placed here. The two teams, hosts Pakistan and an assembled side of foreign stars, the World XI will face off in the third of three T20 Internationals on September 15 at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore.
With the series scoreline currently at one game apiece, it’s all to play for the two sides as they complete their historic series.
It has taken a long time to come but the Pakistan fans will be super-excited as they look at international cricket returning to the country for the first time in many years.
Since 2009, there has been just over overseas country that has toured Pakistan because of high terror threats but that is all set to change as a heavily-guarded World XI side makes the trip to the country.
The World XI will be led by South Africa Faf du Plessis and will also have some of the big-ticket players in the world of cricket. Former Australia skipper George Bailey, former Windies captain Darren Sammy, Grant Elliot, Hashim Amla and Tim Paine are only a few of the 14 players named in the World XI squad.
Andy Flower has agreed to coach the side.
Pakistan are being led by Sarfaraz Ahmed, and they will be playing for the first time since their Champions Trophy-winning campaign including a victory against India in the final.
Also forming a part of the Pakistan squad for this first game against the World XI are the following: Faheem Ashraf, Ahmed Shehzad, Fakhar Zaman, Shoaib Malik, Baber Azam, Imad Wasim, Umer Amin, Muhammad Nawaz, Shadab Khan, Amir Yamin, Hassan Ali, Ruman Raees, Usman Shinwari, Sohail Khan.
Mohammad Amir was expected to be a part of the squad as well but might miss out because of an injury.
As far as the Pakistan v World XI cricket betting tips are concerned, we have seen in the past, it’s difficult for a hastily-assembled side to perform as well as a country’s side does because of the lack of time together.
Add that to the fact there will be unprecedented support and humongous security on show and it seems highly unlikely that the the World XI will have it any easy. Pakistan start favourites for us in this history-making opening Twenty20 International.
