When And Where To Watch ICC World XI vs West Indies Live Coverage On TV Live Streaming Online

West Indies intend to play Thursday's high-profile Twenty20 worldwide against the ICC World XI at full throttle in spite of the fact the match will serve as a fund-raiser to help with hurricane relief in the Caribbean.

A contest arranged as a fundraiser in the wake of two devastating natural disasters in the Caribbean eight months ago - Hurricanes Irma and Maria - has attracted two star-studded line-ups, and promises a high-octane contest in what has been designated as a full global fixture. Rashid Khan picked 2 for 48 for the World XI.

Lewis' 58 from 26 balls, which included five sixes and as many fours, set the tone for the West Indies' 4-199, with Marlon Samuels contributing 43 and Denesh Ramdin closing on 44 not out. Afridi donated United States dollars 20,000 to Hurricane relief from his foundation, while all the players donated their match fees to charity. Tymal Mills did not come out to bat due to injury.

Prolific Pakistan batsman Shoaib Malik will also feature along with 17-year-old Nepalese spin sensation Sandeep Lamichhane.

Windies troubled World XI with the ball at the start.

Kesrick Williams took 3/42 and Andre Russell 2/24.

This was not the first instance the cricketing community is coming together to help those in need. Afridi was the captain of the World XI side which lost by 72 runs.

Pakistan all-rounder Shahid Afridi, who captained World XI, also donated $20,000 from his foundation towards the cause, while players from both teams donated their match fees.

"That's something I'll never forget".

West Indies captain Carlos Brathwaite said: "For those affected by the hurricanes, there have been people left homeless, and have had their lives devastated".

"This is a wonderful experience and will create wonderful memories for these players and hopefully wonderful memories for the spectators who see really talented exciting players playing against a very talented exciting West Indies side", said Flower.
