    Pakistan seal a 20 run victory to kick off the three match series. Excellent performance from the hosts today, they fully deserved their victory. Babar Azam produced a classy knock to boost his side up to 197, then the bowlers contained very well to restrict the World XI. An exciting match to get things undeway, lets hope the rest of the series carries on that way.
