The World XI led by Faf Du Plessis will play three T20 Internationals starting on Tuesday. The others two matches will be played on September 13 and 15 respectively. The jersey of the new team and the Independence Cup will be revealed ahead of the first game.
The 25-year-old cricketer was preparing for this series when he had left for England with his wife as she was due to give birth to a new child. Amir took to social media to inform about his newly born baby. He thanked God for blessing him with a girl. He posted a picture of him along with newly born child and wrote, “Shukar Allhumdulilah blessed with the Rehmat of Allah Mashallah.” They named their baby girl “Minsa.”
