South Africa test captain Faf du Plessis will lead a World XI team to play a three-match Twenty20 series against Pakistan in Lahore next month.

Chairman Pakistan Cricket Board Najam Sethi says Hashim Amla, Morne Morkel, Imran Tahir and David Miller are the other South African players.

The squad also includes three Australian players, George Bailey, Tim Paine and Ben Cutting and two West Indies players, Darren Sammy and Samuel Badree.

Tamim Iqbal of Bangladesh, New Zealand's Grant Elliott, Sri Lanka's Thisara Perera and Paul Collingwood of England complete the 14-man squad.

The series is aimed at reviving international cricket in Pakistan, which has hosted just Zimbabwe and Afghanistan over the last eight years since terrorists attacked the Sri Lanka cricket team bus in Lahore in 2009.
