With the World XI and our very own champions – the ‘Green Shirts’ all set for the greatest cricketing event of the year, Pakistanis just can’t wait to witness history in the making.
As the ‘cornered tigers’, who proved to be the best by making it to the top of ICC Champions Trophy 2017, will play the finest from all around the cricketing globe in the Independence Cup 2017, scheduled to be held on September 12 in Lahore, here is a list of 5 things to look forward to in the upcoming T20 series.
1. A ‘World XI’
Unlike other sports, which have ‘All Star’ games every year, a cricket team full of the world s best players doesn’t get put together very often. The last time we saw a World XI play was 12 years ago, in 2005. This will be the World XI s Twenty20 debut, and Pakistan will forever be linked with that unique achievement.
