XI beat Pakistan by 7 wickets in 2nd T-20

XI beat Pakistan by 7 wickets in 2nd T-20

World XI batsmen Hashim Amla (2R) and Thisara Perera (C) shake hand with Pakistani cricketers at the end of the second Twenty20 worldwide cricket match between the World XI and Pakistan at The Gaddafi Cricket Stadium in Lahore on September 13, 2017.

Arthur said Pakistan's inexperienced and young team had failed to keep its discipline in the last five overs on Wednesday."It was disappointing that we could not defend a 175-run target", said Arthur. Ahmed Shehzad struggled to score boundaries whereas Babar Azam made the most of the opportunity and scored 86 runs from 52 deliveries hitting 10 fours and 2 sixes.

It looked to be enough for the hosts before Perera's late onslaught - he also took two for 23 from three overs in what was a man-of-the-match performance from the 28-year-old. For the third wicket stand, Amla partnering with captain Faf du Plessis added important 35 runs, as the captain gifted his wicket to M Imad.

And then needing 13 runs in the final over, the burly-built Perera gave little trouble to his senior partner Amla, as the former completed the job in style. It was a collective effort from the Pakistan batting line up which kept the scoreboard ticking but they were not allowed to run away with it in the death overs.

At 135, Babar was sent back by Badree, who had the batsman - looking to smash the bowler over long-on - caught by Miller at deep mid-on for a 38-ball 45 studded with five fours.

Imran Tahir on the other hand is arguably the most lethal bowler in World XI's arsenal.

Six police officers and 32 other people were injured, none seriously, in the clashes, said a fire department official in Seongju. The U.S. and South Korea should "immediately stop the deployment process and withdraw relevant equipment", Geng said.


Pakistan reached the 50-run mark in 7.2 overs and crossed the 100 mark in 12.2 overs.

Badree was one of two changes made by World XI along with England's Paul Collingwood - playing his first worldwide since retiring in 2011.

The chase was getting tough for World XI, who needed 33 off the last 12 balls.

Pakistan included pacer Usman Shinwari and spinner Mohammad Nawaz as the duo replacing unfit Hasan Ali and all-rounder Faheem Ashraf.

The veteran batsman smashed three huge sixes in his 23-ball knock of 39 before being dismissed in the final delivery of the innings.

RESULT: World XI won by seven wickets to level three-match at 1-1.
