Seven country star studded World XI left here on Saturday morning for Dubai after a successful tour of Pakistan for bringing back worldwide cricket to the country. "It is great. The hospitality, the support from the crowds at the ground".
However, he was not sure whether a short tour by a World XI could convince his country to resume playing bilateral cricket in Pakistan. "It will take its natural course, but if we continue to have series such as these, teams continue to tour and everyone goes home happy then there is no reason why cricket can't be a regular feature in this part of the world", added Sami.
Sami further said that the level of confidence has increased significantly in the last few years, but added that the complete return of worldwide cricket in Pakistan is going to be a gradual and slow process.
Fans have been clamouring for the return of global cricket since March after the final of the domestic T20 Pakistan Super League, featuring high-profile foreign players such as World Cup victor Darren Sammy, was held in Lahore. The PCB has had to rely on heavy financial incentives for the visiting players to draw them to the country so far.
Sri Lanka have agreed to visit Pakistan for one match at the end of September and West Indies are planning to send a team later in the year, Sethi said.

It would give them a different competitive edge on Marvel, who have so far only made solo movies about male superheroes. Variety reports that Jenkins recently closed her deal to return for the sequel, which is due in theaters in 2019.
He also added; "I just loved seeing emotions on people's faces, that's the thing that stands out for me", he said when asked about his fondest memory of the tour, adding that he also loved the food in Pakistan. We hope that the successful event would pave the way for more sports activities of regional and global level in Pakistan, contributing to efforts to promote soft image of the country.
The likes of Darren Sammy were paid up to $50,000 for the PSL final.
"If security plans stay as good as this, other teams will also come here".
