A brilliant innings from Babar Azam and some fine bowling performances helped Pakistan cricket team celebrate the return of international cricket to the country with a comprehensive 20-run victory over ICC World XI in the first Twenty20 match of the Independence Cup at Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore on Tuesday.

After Babar Azam powered Pakistan to 197/5 with a 52-ball 86, the ICC World XI could only manage 177/7 as the hosts won the first international cricket match held in their country in two years.

This was only the second time Pakistan hosted an international match since the 2009 terrorist attack on the Sri Lankan team bus in Lahore.
