The West Indies  are all set to lock horns with the ICC World XI at the Lord’s in a T20I charity match to help raise funds for the refurbishment of five cricket stadium in the Caribbean. The stadiums were damaged by Hurricanes Irma and Maria in 2017. The World XI team would be led by Shahid Afridi after Eoin Morgan pulled out due to injury. Whereas, the West Indies would be captained by Carlos Braithwaite. The live cricket streaming of the match will be available on Sony LIV, while the live telecast will be available on Sony Six and Sony SIX HD in India.

The World XI team is a mix of Asian, New Zealand and England players. Many big players pulled off from the side for various reasons but the team is still star studded. Players like Dinesh Karthik and Rashid Khan will look to carry their good form from IPL. Sandeep Lamichhane would be a player to look for in the match. With the big names like Chris Gayle, Evin Lewis and Andre Russell we might expect a high-scoring match.
