Pakistan Eleven thrashed the World Eleven to clinch the Independence Cup, winning the three-match Twenty20 global series 2-1, here amid tight security at the jam-packed Gaddafi Stadium on Friday night.
Buoyed by a 102-run second-wicket stand between opener Ahmed Shehzad and batsman Babar Azam, Pakistan reached 183 for four in their 20 overs before restricting the star-studded World XI team led by South African captain Faf du Plessis to 150 for eight.
The World XI lost Tamim Iqbal (14) and Ben Cutting (5) early on and Hashim Amla (21) was run out after a mix up with Proteas' skipper Faf du Plessis.
Already a T20 worldwide against Sri Lanka has been scheduled, subject to a security clearance and a three match T20 series against West Indies is also in the plans.
Despite the International Cricket Council (ICC) pushing for more international cricket in Pakistan, Cricket Australia chief executive James Sutherland has ruled out the possibility of his side touring the country in the near future.
"These cricketers are here to play their part in the safe and steady return for worldwide cricket in Pakistan so that the enthusiastic and die-hard fans and followers of Pakistan cricket can once again start to watch their stars and their heroes in their own backyard".

The PCB over the years could not earn any money while hosting the home series at neutral venues of the UAE; rather it increased the financial problems of the Board, Sethi lamented. People are so grateful and thankful they have a team to play against in their own backyard.
In the event of teams refusing to play in Pakistan, the ICC will look into sending another World XI team. "It's not about ourselves, great to see we can play a small part in bringing cricket back to Pakistan".
Du Plessis said the significance of their tour was that it was something that was bigger than just playing for one's country.
They made two changes, with former Australian captain George Bailey getting his first game of the tour, while crowd favourite Darren Sammy also returned after sitting out of the second game. "It will be good for the children to see their heroes play", said the former New Zealand all-rounder.
