The Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) tour of Pakistan began with a win as they clinched their opening game against Lahore Qalandars. Their bowling attack was good enough to keep down the Qalandars to a modest total. The MCC team did miss the fire-power but reach the target in the last over with four wickets in hand. They will now face Pakistan Shaheens on Sunday which will be the first of the One-Day matches they play in this tour. Saud Shakeel will be leading Shaheens which consists of young talented players like Rohail Nazir, Hassan Moshin and Sameen Gul.

The weather is expected not to affect the game between Shaheens and MCC to be played on Sunday.
