ICC World XI v/s West Indies, Hurricane Relief T20: Time, teams, venue and where to watch

But he was not up to the mark on Thursday (May 31) night.

Earlier, with the West Indians cruising to 51/0 in the powerplay, Afghan leg-spinner Rashid Khan managed to draw first blood with the wicket of the unsafe Lewis in the 8th over before off-spinner Malik packed back Gayle, who failed to get going.

In this article, we will focus on the best batting innings from previous World XI matches, looking back at the brilliance of those cricketers.

However, former Pakistan captain Afridi found it a flawless opportunity - to make fun of the Afghan spinner as he repeated Rashid's gestures. However, the linchpin scalped two wickets.

A galaxy of stars were seen at Lord's to help raise funds for the refurbishment of five cricket stadia in the Caribbean that were damaged by hurricanes in 2017.

Afridi, who retired from mainstream worldwide cricket two years ago, received a guard of honour at Lord's. This should draw a lot of traction as well, which is great for raising of funds.

There was yet another comeback, too, for cricket's very own Frank Sinatra, Shahid Afridi - who, due to the official T20I status of the match, was featuring in his 99th such contest, more than two years after his previous retirement at Mohali in March 2016.

Thisara Perera made 61 in reply for the World XI, but Kesrick Williams (3-42), Russell (2-25) and Samuel Badree (2-4) helped bowl them out for just 127.

Evin Lewis was the star of the day as he smashed 58 off just 26 balls and was deservedly awarded as the player of the match for his blistering performance.

Denesh Ramdin and Marlon Samuels chipped in with 44* and 43 runs respectively.

Despite the match between the West Indies and World XI being exclusively for charity, there were still serious question marks over Hussian's position on the field, given the match had full global status, and players' stats were officially counted towards their records.

The World XI side, in fact, has had more than a few changes since being formally announced.
