The Test match that for so many days seemed impossible to ponder ended in a fashion few will forget as Nathan Lyon bowled his team to a 48-run victory that destiny appeared duty bound to deliver but then seemed hellbent on withholding.

'Kenya visit will change perception' - PCB

The PCB hopes Kenya's visit to Pakistan can serve as a step towards the resumption of international cricket in the country. Pakistan hasn't hosted a Test, ODI or T20 international since March 2009, when terrorists attacked Sri Lanka's team bus in Lahore.

Kenya landed in Pakistan on December 10 with Steve Tikolo, their greatest player, now serving as their head coach. Kenya reached the World Cup semi-finals in 2003, but have fallen sharply since, to the extent that they lost their ODI status in January. They are bringing over a depleted side to Pakistan, without players such as Collins Obuya, Tanmay Mishra, Seren Waters and Irfan Karim.
