Sanam Jung, Shaniera Akram and more celebrate cricket coming home with World XI series

Cricket comes home and Pakistanis are ecstatic, especially our celebrities.

Hosting the international World XI for the first time, Pakistan is going to be home to 15 players from seven countries set to play a three-match T20 series in Lahore for the next few days.

Naturally, excitement is through the roof, especially after the unfortunate attack on the Sri Lankan cricket team in Lahore in 2009 which hinted at an end to Pakistan hosting any international games in the future.

But this year overturned that. As Wasim Akram aptly tweeted, the World XI in Pakistan is "an epic rebirth of our country's beloved sport - Cricket!"

Especially after Pakistan's win last night, celebrities are cheering for our team and hometown. Stars took to social media to express their excitement.
