Just the thought of PSL final being held in Karachi last week is enough to give anyone goosebumps. The city lit up with joy like no other on the anniversary of the monumental lifting of the World Cup trophy on the same day about 26 years ago. Wow. How poetic was that? And now, with the Pakistan vs. West Indies series happening in the city, cricket not only came back but it damn well is here to stay.

But just when we thought the excitement was over, we couldn’t have been more wrong.
Pakistanis sure are ready for the international cricket to keep on taking place on local grounds.
First Zimbabwe, then World XI, then Sri Lanka and Tomorrow will be West Indies.

It’s time to reclaim the past glory.
The West Indies team arrived in great spirits for the three day Battle Royale.
Windies arrive in Pakistan for the three-match T20 International Series in Karachi.
