LOL .. its funny for pakistanis to decide playing a "world XI" team when India are the champions. Traditionally its the World cup winners that play against the World XI (real one though, not some cheap RETIRED XI.

@ AK47_pk I do not think BCCI would not want cricket to return to Pakistan. Do you think they would skip an opportunity to make ship loads of money with one series against Pakistan rather than play countries like New Zealand and West Indies that do not bring much advertising revenue?

They gesture of the World XI should be applauded, by willing to play in Pakistan. Being an Indian would love to see India travelling to Pakistan and palying series there. The Mother of all Battles and brings the best out of every player.

Good one. But The ICC and the PCB should have acknowledged and supported any such move to host cricket matches in Pakistan.

ROFL! It's truly ridiculous to name the side World XI.

you forget to write " With LOVE from India".... Int Cricket will return to Pakistan just the matter of time. This is just a first drop of Rain.....

This is so disrespectful to legened playing in international 11. Problem with world 11 clearly shows ICC is tilted heavily towards a powerful board which will do anything to stop c cricket coming back to pakistan.
