Glamorgan T20 overseas signing David Miller will play for a World XI in a three-match Independence Cup series against Pakistan to be played under lights at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore on 12, 13 and 15 September.

The Faf du Plessis-led World XI side contains five players from South Africa, including David Miller and also a selection of big names from six other Test playing countries in a series that has been given T20I status.

Miller signed for Glamorgan for a short six match stint during their NatWest T20 Blast campaign and immediately impressed supporters with a man of the match performance against Gloucestershire in Bristol.

The left-hander then departed to play for South Africa A against India A before returning for the quarter-final victory over Leicestershire Foxes and Finals Day.

"I'm really looking forward to it," said Miller. "In the last few years I've managed to play around the world in different conditions and this (Pakistan) is an extension of where I would like to play. 

"Pakistan are a formidable team on the world stage and I've yet to play there, so it's an opportunity to play in new conditions."

The high-profile T20I series brings together several top-level competitors including three of the top five bowlers in the MRF Tyres ICC T20I Players Rankings getting to display their wares. Pakistan’s left-arm spinner Imad Wasim leads the T20I rankings table for bowlers while two former number-one bowlers feature in the World XI side.
