Pakistan cricket Board arranged separate rides for the two star players in "rickshaws" as soon as the Pakistan innings was completed during the match.

"I appreciate there was a lot of planning, a lot of time, a lot of money, a lot of energy spent in the planning of this week", Du Plessis told reporters on Friday. Lahories, as well as people from other cities, were so much excited and they were not even afraid of anything bad.

The ICC has ruled out an "overnight miraculous" return of global cricket to Pakistan even though it was satisfied with the successful staging of the Independence Cup in Lahore.

Several thousand security officials, including armed soldiers, guarded the stadium and the team hotel. Since then our players have to travel foreign countries all year, longing for that cheerful noise of a home crowd.

While for now the West Indies and Sri Lanka might not be the crème-de-crème of global cricket, a successful conclusion of their visit could open up more doors.

Former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi was honoured during the third and final T20I between Pakistan and World XI at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore.

He said Darren Sammy had visited Pakistan twice and their security teams had witnessed security arrangements in the PSL final and now in the world XI tour and security was very good in Pakistan which was an ideal host country and in the given circumstances he was sure that his team would visit the country in November.

In 2008, the contest for the ICC Champions Trophy did not go ahead in Pakistan after England, Australia, New Zealand, West Indies and South Africa all withdrew due to security concerns.

"We welcomed them in a memorable way and we are here to cherish the achievements of our great players besides watching a thrilling match", they added. "When I first thought of coming, I was obviously nervous within myself, but now going through this week, I have completely different emotions and feelings and very happy with our time here", he said.

He said Pakistan is "safe for worldwide cricket".

The PCB chairman said the tour by the West Indies is an important milestone as it would be a proper bilateral series in Pakistan and it would open the doors for the PCB to negotiate with other cricket playing nations.
