Final Teams:
World XI (Playing XI): Tamim Iqbal, Hashim Amla, Faf du Plessis(c), George Bailey(w), David Miller, Thisara Perera, Darren Sammy, Ben Cutting, Samuel Badree, Morne Morkel, Imran Tahir

Pakistan (Playing XI): Fakhar Zaman, Ahmed Shehzad, Babar Azam, Shoaib Malik, Sarfraz Ahmed(w/c), Imad Wasim, Mohammad Nawaz, Shadab Khan, Hasan Ali, Usman Khan, Rumman Raees

Sarfraz: We would try to bat first and put up a big one on the board. There was a problem with the execution in our earlier game and that was the issue. We shouldn’t set the target as 200 at the start, we need to assess the conditions and plan accordingly. We would look to start with 170 and take it from there. I have enjoyed playing out here and the crowds have supported us well. Let’s hope this one is organized just as well.

World XI have won the toss and have opted to field

Faf: We are going to have a bowl. It looks like a good wicket and our batting is the X-factor for us. Sammy comes back as well and that would help. If you look at the power hitting we have it is a big factor. I love to try and take wickets; keep thinking from the bowler’s perspective to take wickets.

Hello. We’re in for the third installment – the final that would determine the future course of events with Pakistan, in Pakistan. No, not the result, the staging. But the series that was fast losing context and steam have Thisera Perera to thank. Playing when he shouldn’t ideally have, he took his side past the chequered post when he ideally shouldn’t have. So, an Independence Cup is to be won, and for one final time, a revamped Gadaffi is all set to bask in the colour and the crowds who’ve come in ‘overpriced’.
