Pakistan are 50-up in just six overs courtesy high-risk shots played by Zaman and surprisingly a mature inning from Shehzad.

Talking about the official announcement of the end of his ban, he said, "As every official of PCB is busy in the World XI series, I will be contacting them over phone and then they will give me time to meet and for the official letter after which is will be able to play cricket".

Pakistan's innings was built around opener Ahmed Shehzad's 55-ball 89 and a 31-ball 48 by Babar Zaman.

Pakistan won the first match by 20 runs on Tuesday before the World XI fought back with a seven-wicket victory on Wednesday to set up Friday's decider. Miller fell to a Hasan Ali ball.

Hasan Ali was the pick of the bowlers with 2/28 while Imad Wasim, Usman Khan and Rumman Raees chipped in with a wicket each.

To the huge cheers of the jam-packed Gaddafi, Pakistan had won the match, but the World XI would leave Pakistan after winning the hearts of all cricket lovers in the country.

He said: "Pakistan is an unavoidable part of the global cricket community and the Pakistani people are very passionate about the game".

Former Pakistan skipper Misbah Ul- Haq and Shahid Afridi made their presence felt on the ground.

Irfan, however, expressed sadness at missing the Independence Cup matches against the World XI which would have given him opportunity to play in front of home crowds and on home turf. "As we host more foreign teams we will have relaxations but without compromising on the security for visiting teams or our players", Sethi said. "Now, overseeing these matches, their report will determine how FICA (Federation of International Cricketers' Associations) and our players' association would decide on West Indies team's proposed tour to Pakistan", he said.
