Faf du Plessis, the skipper of the World XI side in the recently concluded Independence Cup, has reached home safely after the series. Du Plessis revealed the news on social media. World XI lost the hard-fought series against Pakistan 2-1 earlier this week. But most importantly it was the cricket which won as the sport finally returned to the country after 8 long years.
The World XI side comprised of some star players like Hashim Amla, David Miller, Darren Sammy, Morne Morkel, Imran Tahir, Thisara Perera among others. The tournament was played in full spirit and the spectators were seen cheering for the opposition as well. More importantly, it was organised very smoothly by Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and proved that it is a safe country to play cricket now.
Faf thanks Pakistan crowd
The South African skipper led the World XI side very well but unfortunately could not score enough runs for his side. But he praised the people of Pakistan for supporting them throughout the tournament. He posted a message for his followers to let them that he has reached his home. His message read, “Arrived safely back home.Thank you, Pakistan and Lahore for your hospitality.” He also posted the pictures of Pakistani spectators along with the message.
Here is Faf’s tweet:

But the word ‘safely’ didn’t go down well with many and the fans trolled him both funnily and seriously. While some reminded him that lakhs of Pakistanis stay safe in the country and he was bound to go safe, others questioned him regarding his safety cheekily.
This is how the use of the word ‘safely’ was trolled:
Thank you for no blast back home in One piece.

The series has surely revived the cricket in Pakistan, but it is now up to them to keep things smooth and conduct the third T20 International against Sri Lanka without any hindrance. Also, Windies is scheduled to travel the country in November for a series of 3 matches in the shortest format of the game.
