World XI beat Pakistan by seven wickets in the second Twenty20 international to level the three-match series at 1-1 at the Gaddafi stadium yesterday.

Hashim Amla (72 not out) and Thisara Perera (47 not out) batted with aggression to help the visitors reach a 175-run target in 19.5 overs to set up an intriguing final match tomorrow.

Pakistan had scored 174-6 in their 20 overs. Babar Azam (45), Ahmed Shehzad (43) and Shoaib Malik (39) had good starts but none of them went on to score big, as Pakistan found it tough going on a slow and low pitch.

Sri Lankan paceman Perera and West Indian spinner Samuel Badree claimed two wickets apiece for the World XI.
