Former New Zealand batsman Grant Elliott, part of the World XI squad on Pakistan tour on Friday said that the security arrangement is "amazing" and hoped to see the return of Test cricket to the country.

"This tour is another reminder of the fact that cricket transcends boundaries", he said.

South Africa's Faf du Plessis praised Pakistan's effort to win back confidence of foreign cricket teams and resume global cricket at home. "Everything was very smooth and very easy and we say thank you for that".

Pakistan celebrated the return of worldwide cricket with a thumping 33-run win to clinch the final T20 match and the series against the World XI at the Gaddafi stadium on Friday. "I don't see in the short term there are any plans for us to play in Pakistan" he added.

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. Aerial monitoring of Gaddafi stadium and the hotel where World XI players were staying, was done by law enforcement agencies. Now, the next steps have to be taken, meaning can they be rolled out in more than one city over a longer period of time.

The president of West Indies Cricket Board David Cameroon has announced that the Caribbean side will visit Pakistan in November.

Hosting of this short cricket series is a major step towards the revival of cricket in Pakistan and to convivence the other countries to play cricket in Pakistan.

After the great 3- matches other countries have also started thinking about sending their players to Pakistan after watching a full-proof security.
