Imran Nazir played an explosive knock of 53, which included four fours and five sixes to help Pakistan Stars XI team beat World International XI by 6 wickets in their second exhibition Twenty20 match at National Stadium here on Sunday.

Chasing a modest target of 143, the home side raced home for the loss of 4 wickets in 16.4 overs, the Daily Times reports.

Shahzaib Hasan with a fine knock of 39 was the other main contributor for the winners.

Earlier, World International XI made 142 for the loss of 9 wickets, thanks to tail-ender M Hayward's undefeated innings of 42 and 26 extras.

Pakistan Star XI defeated the visitors by 84 runs in the first match played at the same venue on Saturday.

The unofficial games at the National Stadium were well attended by fans, who have not been able to watch international cricketers in action in Pakistan since the terror attacks on the Sri Lankan team bus in Lahore in March 2009.
