Kohli a better limited over batsman than Smith: Clarke
The five match ODI series will begin from September 17 and will be followed by three T2o internationals. Amidst all this, chances of Yuvraj making a return to India's playing XI looks very bleak at the moment.
Came to chase down the total, World XI never looked in the contention as they lost their batsmen at regular intervals. The series also marked another step towards revival of global cricket in Pakistan.
Earlier, Pakistan, sent into bat by the World XI, scored 183-4. Pakistan pacer Hasan Ali finished as the best bowler with figures of 2-28. Shehzad, who hit eight fours in his 55-ball knock, upped the scoring rate in the last three overs when he smashed three successive sixes off Australian seamer Ben Cutting in the 18th over.

Sarfraz Ahmed-led side's 20 runs victory in first T20 on September 12 opened the series 1-0 but in the second T20, the experience of Hashim Amla steered the World XI to a comfortable victory over Pakistan, leaving the series tied at 1-1. Azam, dropped on 22 by South African Imran Tahir at fine leg, also missed his second half century of the series when he holed out after scoring 48 off 31 balls with five boundaries. Already a T20 global 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. It was only as an after-thought that the PCB announced to hold a joint farewell reception for former Test captain Misbah-ul-Haq, senior batsman and skipper Younis Khan and ex-T20 captain and all-rounder Shahid Afridi.
