    • We have often heard the sentence, Cricket Is The Real Winner. We can proudly say that the game has indeed been the winner today. West Indies did win the match but it really did not matter which team ended up as the winning side. Sometimes, in sport, there are things much more important than just a win or loss. Today was such an occasion. ICC asked cricketers from all over the world to come and play in this charity match to raise funds and rebuild stadiums in Caribbean which were destroyed by hurricanes, the cricketers obliged. ICC asked people to come to Lord’s and watch, they too came. The board asked people to donate and we are pretty sure, a hefty amount would have come their way. It was so good to see the West Indies players taking a victory lap and applauding the crowd.

      The game also happened to be Shahid Afridi’s last international match. Don’t forget, he did not get a grand farewell when he announced his retirement. Today was the day when he could raise his arms for one more time in the air to celebrate a wicket and he did it too.

      All in all, a good day of not just cricket but of hopes that people can get unite to rebuild, redevelop anything and that’s enough to keep us in good spirits.
      The T20 World Champions lived up to their billing as World XI were no match for them. They lost four wickets inside four overs and never really got going. Thisara Perera’s career best prolonged the game and gave the spectators some more time to donate to the charitable cause. We also saw Afridi bow out one final time in an international game and the reception he got from the Lord’s crowd was outstanding. Badree and Russell started it all with the ball, while Williams finished it.

    • Hand shakes are all around and West Indies are doing a victory lap, congratulating and thanking the crowd who spent money to buy tickets and come to watch this match, helping to rebuild the 5 stadias in Caribbean.

    • That means West Indies beat World XI by 72 runs. Kesrick Williams to McClenaghan, out Caught by Nurse!! All over. Windies win by 72 runs. Mills is not coming out to bat as he injured his hammy while fielding. Windies take a lap of the ground to appreciate the support they got. The off-cutter angled across the left-hander, McClenaghan wanted to heave it across the line and ended up slicing it towards sweeper cover, the ball was dipping in front of Nurse, but he does extremely well to run forward, dive full length and take it cleanly. McClenaghan c Nurse b Kesrick Williams 10(8) [6s-1]

    • Williams continues.

    • After 16 overs,ICC World XI 124/8 ( Mitchell McClenaghan 9 , Sandeep Lamichhane 2)

      An irritating period in the game for West Indies as they look for the ninth wicket which will be the last wicket a Tymal Mills is injured and won’t bat.

    • SIX! McClenaghan stays still and swings it hard to the leg side, connects well and fetches four for himdelf at deep mid-wicket.

    • FOUR! Off-spinner from Nurse to McClenaghan, who misses it and also the keeper, the ball goes for a boundary to third man.
    • Nurse continues

    • After 15 overs,ICC World XI 112/8 ( Mitchell McClenaghan 3 , Sandeep Lamichhane 1)

    • Sandeep Lamichhane, right handed bat, comes to the crease

    • OUT! Yorker length Rashid tries to play a cheeky short to fine leg, caught in front of the stumps and umpire raised the finger after a huge appeal. Rashid Khan lbw b Kesrick Williams 9(7)

    • Williams into the attack.

      After 14 overs,ICC World XI 101/6 ( Thisara Perera 61 , Rashid Khan 3)

      Ashley Nurse into the attack and this move is suggestive of the fact that West Indies wants to end this early. Spinners can be tempting for the batsmen to hit. Rashid and Perera however carry on. 100 up for World XI, they need 99 runs in 36 balls.

    • DROPPED! Short tracker from Nurse, Rashid hits it straight to man at deep mid-wicket who makes a mess of it and drops.

    • After 13 overs,ICC World XI 97/6 ( Thisara Perera 58 , Rashid Khan 2)

      Afridi has departed in what was the last innings of his international career. And with that wicket it seems, the last chance of World XI having any chance of winning this one has also gone. Perera is still battling it out but for how long? World XI need 103 runs in 42 balls.

    • Rashid Khan, right handed bat, comes to the crease

    • OUT! Full-toss and Afridi flicks it directly into the hands of the deep mid-wicket fielder, who catches it safely. End of Boom Boom from international cricket circuit. Afridi c Nurse b Keemo Paul 11(12) 

    • After 12 overs,ICC World XI 92/5 ( Thisara Perera 55 , Shahid Afridi (C) 11)

      Brilliant batting from Perera, whose batting stance has impressed everyone, with more force on his front leg and body falling ahead. In that way, he is able to transfer the weight on back foot easily. World XI need 108 runs in 48 balls.

    • FOUR! Short stuff from Perera and he pulls it blindly, get the leading edge, the ball flies off to fine leg for four

    • FOUR! Perera steers this fullish delivery through the covers for a boundary. And with that stroke he has also reached his FIFTY.

    • SIX! Fullish from Williams but Perera goes big over mid-off this time for a maximum.

    • SIX! Short ball again and yet again Perera goes big over deep mid-wicket.

      Keemo Paul is on now. This is the future of West Indies bowling, literally up against the rest of the world. Malik is the cool head here and he needs to guide Perera, who is trying to smash everything that is in his zone or not. He fetched two back to back fours in the last 2 balls however.

    • Sam Billings, right handed bat, comes to the crease

      Innings Break

      Windies will take that. Lewis first, Samuels next and Ramdin towards the end took up the duties of hustling the scoreboard with a flurry of clean hits. Russell clobbered Rashid Khan for three sixes in the 19th over; settling his IPL scores while at it and that sparkling knock helped Windies squeeze 34 off the last 2 overs. Remember this is a used pitch (England v Pakistan 1st Test) and the slower balls are gripping. Won’t be a straightforward chase, but the powerplay overs will be crucial. Let’s see how the World XI respond to this stiff challenge.

      After 20 overs,West Indies 199/4 ( Denesh Ramdin (W) 44 , Andre Russell 21)

      Top class over from McClenaghan to finish things off. West Indies finish with but the way Ramdin and Russell were going, it seemed they would even clear the 210-run mark but hey, they have stopped them at 199.

      World XI will need exactly 200 runs to win this only T20I match.

  • After 1 overs,West Indies 11/0 ( Chris Gayle 1 , Evin Lewis 10)

World XI have won the toss and have opted to field

Afridi: Looks overcast, we’ll give them a chance (to bat). It’s wonderful for me to be part of the game for noble cause. All are keen and focussed to play this game. If you look at Windies, they are World Champions, it will be a good game. I’m carrying injury for last two months. After PSL, I didn’t bowl, didn’t bat.

Brathwaite: As players we have a big platform. Thanks to the guys for coming here. Some are here from the IPL. To be able to share our experiences and skill-sets at home of cricket for a worthy cause. Looking forward to the game.

World XI (Playing XI): Luke Ronchi(w), Tamim Iqbal, Sam Billings, Dinesh Karthik, Shoaib Malik, Shahid Afridi(c), Thisara Perera, Rashid Khan, Mitchell McClenaghan, Sandeep Lamichhane, Tymal Mills

Cricket’s credibility as a gentleman’s game has taken a major hit in recent times. So much so that that ICC’s cricket committee, in its recent meeting, decided to take immediate stock of the situation and advocated greater authority to match officials to improve player behaviour. In such an atmosphere of hostility, the Twenty20 International fixture between Windies and World XI on Thursday (May 31) at Lord’s, to be played for a worthy cause, is a much-needed antidote which’ll play a part towards the eradication of the bad blood that has taken the focus off the game itself, in addition to its original objective.

A galaxy of former and current stars will be in action at the iconic Lord’s on Thursday to play an exhibition match between the ICC World XI and the West Indies and help raise funds for the refurbishment of five cricket stadia in the Caribbean that were damaged by Hurricanes Irma and Maria in 2017.

Former Pakistan skipper Shahid Afridi has finally been named to lead the World XI after England’s limited overs captain Eoin Morgan sustained a broken finger during a domestic match.
