The three-match series after this game is now tied 1-1 with the final T20 scheduled for Friday.
For World-XI, Hashim Amla made unbeaten 72 runs. Iqbal struggled to score which created pressure on Amla.
Shoaib Malik once again tried to lift the innings through his 23-ball 39 that was spiced with three sixes, but a disciplined bowling effort from World XI meant the brakes were applied on Pakistan's innings at crucial junctures.
When Hashim pulled Shadab Khan for a six over mid-wicket, the visitors looked in a position to chase the target.
Cutting ultimately finished with figures of 1-52 off his four overs to cap-off a bad day in the office.
Even the strong-looking pair of Amla and Du Plessis failed to keep up the run-rate as it increased to 11.2 by the 12th over. Sammy did cause slight jitters with his six-hitting skills but they did not turn out to be enough to beat Pakistan.
However, luck did not elude Perera in the second T20I. He scored a 13-ball 21 striking four fours. In the first match of Independence Cup, he leaked as many as 51 runs and then scored a mere 17 in a pursuit of colossal total.
Pakistan, however, won the match 33 runs.
Babar, the man-of-the-match in the series opener, and Shehzad added a valuable 59 for the second wicket. The youngster also got rid of David Miller after getting hit for a maximum the ball before that.
The veteran batsman smashed three huge sixes in his 23-ball knock of 39 before being dismissed in the final delivery of the innings.
