International cricket returns to Pakistan after six years

Pakistan and Zimbabwe are set to play a One Day International (ODI) match in the Pakistani city of Lahore on Friday.

It is the first time in six years that Pakistan is hosting international cricket on home soil, after an attack by gunmen on the Sri Lankan team in 2009.

In that attack, a driver and six policemen were killed, and seven Sri Lankan players were wounded.

Pakistan's ODI captain, Azhar Ali, told the BBC's Shahzeb Jillani it would be "a great moment" to play at home.
