Pakistan marked the return of worldwide cricket to the country with 36-run Twenty20 victory over Sri Lanka in front of a packed stadium in the eastern city of Lahore.

The Pakistan Super League final in March - also in Lahore - featured several overseas players.

Sri Lanka plan to send more teams to play in Pakistan after being impressed with the high level of security their national team received for the T20I in Lahore on Sunday, according to Sri Lanka Cricket chief executive Ashley de Silva.

"Thanks for inviting us, we really love you guys", said Sri Lanka captain Thisara Perera, whose side were beaten 3-0 in the series with the first two matches having taken place in Abu Dhabi.

Chandimal's admission comes after Sri Lanka sports minister Dayasiri Jaysekara denied encouraging the team to seek the assistance of a sorcerer.

Pakistan has only hosted Zimbabwe for a short limited-overs series two years ago since the 2009 attack. We congratulate all Pakistanis that Sri Lanka team that was attacked before visited Pakistan and played cricket. Security for Sunday's match comprised 16,000 police officials and over 250 surveillance vehicles deployed around Lahore's Gaddafi Stadium, a police official said.

Hundreds of security cameras have also been installed to keep a close watch on the movement of spectators.

"What's important to me is that we are hosting an global match and show the world that it's safe to play in Pakistan", said Ghulam Abbas, a college student. But since the Test victory, Sri Lanka have fared less well.

Pakistan is expected to host West Indies next month for a three-match Twenty20 series in Lahore.
