This was con­firmed by Nazam Sethi, the chair­man of the Pak­istan Cricket Board (PCB).

Speak­ing ex­clu­sively over his mo­bile from La­hore on a day af­ter suc­cess­fully host­ing Tues­day's first T-20 match against World XI, he said, "Cameron is ar­riv­ing on Thurs­day and will watch the fi­nal match on Fri­day".

The main pur­pose of Cameron's visit is to sat­isfy him­self with the se­cu­rity ar­range­ment in place for the cur­rent se­ries as he is likely to have com­mit­ted to send the West Indies team in Novem­ber for the bi­lat­eral se­ries against Pak­istan in Pak­istan.

The PCB has sent in­vi­ta­tions to all boards. It is not known whether there would be any rep­re­sen­ta­tive from Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) board but the in­puts from the only Sri Lankan player This­ara Per­era play­ing in the World XI may be sought and the Lankan team in all like­li­hood will play the last (3rd) T-20 of the bac­te­rial se­ries will be played at the Gadaffi Sta­dium on 29th Oc­to­ber.
