    • ICC World T20 champions West Indies will play an ICC Rest of the World XI at Lord’s on Thursday 31st May 2018, to raise money for parts of the Caribbean affected by Hurricanes Irma and Maria

    • Proceeds to go towards the restoration of cricket grounds in Dominica and Anguilla that were damaged by the hurricanes

    • Match to have full International T20 status and will be broadcast live on Sky Sports

    Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC), in conjunction with Cricket West Indies (CWI) and the England & Wales Cricket Board (ECB), has today announced that a special fundraising T20 International match will be played at Lord’s on Thursday 31st May 2018.

    West Indies, current ICC World T20 champions, will take on an ICC Rest of the World XI, in a one-off match which will be broadcast live on Sky Sports.

    The International Cricket Council (ICC) has confirmed its full support by granting the match International status and asking Giles Clarke, ECB President and ICC Board Member, to assist in coordinating the match.

    The cricket grounds in Dominica (Windsor Park Stadium) and Anguilla (James Ronald Webster Park) were damaged following the passage of Hurricanes Irma and Maria. These essential grounds represent the heartbeat of cricket in each country and are important community facilities. The proceeds from the fundraising match will go towards their restoration.

    CWI President, Dave Cameron, said: “Hurricanes Irma and Maria have devastated parts of the Eastern Caribbean and we have been considering how CWI can best show support for our region in the most impactful way. I would like personally to thank MCC for agreeing to host the match at Lord’s, and ECB, especially their President Giles Clarke, for their kind and generous support of this initiative. I am sure the match will be highly entertaining and competitive, as well as a great platform for us to raise much-needed funds.”

    The Chief Executive & Secretary of MCC, Guy Lavender, said: “MCC is delighted to be able to host this very special match. The last time that a match between West Indies and Rest of the World was held at Lord’s was in 1966. MCC has enjoyed a warm relationship with the people of the Caribbean for over a century, and is proud to be able to play a part in providing relief for the areas that were devastated by last year’s hurricanes. I am looking forward to seeing a capacity crowd to help raise funds to restore important cricket facilities.”

    Colin Graves, Chairman of ECB, commented: “To have two category 5 hurricanes in the space of two weeks was unprecedented and everyone around the world was shocked by the destruction which was caused. The ECB and CWI have always enjoyed a fantastic relationship and we are keen to support them and the people of the Caribbean in this fundraising initiative. I would like to thank our partners, Sky Sports, for their immediate support by agreeing to broadcast this special International match, and MCC for agreeing to host it at Lord’s.”

    The West Indies squad for the Hurricane Relief T20 Challenge against the ICC Rest of the World XI at Lord's next month has been announced.

    The Windies, who have recently qualified for next year's ICC World Cup in England, will be captained in this special fundraising International T20 match by Carlos Brathwaite, who famously hit Ben Stokes for four sixes off the final over to win the 2016 World T20. Andre Russell, Evin Lewis and Chris Gayle are also included in the squad for the match on Thursday 31st May.

    This charity match is being staged with the support of the MCC, ECB and ICC to raise funds to rebuild and restore five major cricket venues at the heart of Caribbean communities that were damaged by Hurricanes Irma and Maria.

    Match winning all-rounder Russell is back in the Windies T20 squad after his return to cricket for the Super50 Cup and the IPL, where he has scored 153 runs overall after four matches with just 64 balls faced.

    Explosive openers Lewis and “Universe Boss” Gayle also return to the squad, along with spinner Ashley Nurse.

    “WE’RE HOPING TO RAISE A SIGNIFICANT SUM FROM THE HURRICANE RELIEF T20 CHALLENGE

    “We welcome the return of the players who missed our recent Pakistan series and are delighted to recall Andre Russell to the squad, as we believe he will have a key role in our white ball cricket. Denesh Ramdin and Keemo Paul keep their places after encouraging performances at both regional and international level,” said Chairman of Selectors, Courtney Browne.

    CWI’s CEO, Johnny Grave, commented “On behalf of CWI, I’d like to thank the players for their commitment to and support of this vital cause. We’re hoping to raise a significant sum from the Hurricane Relief T20 Challenge and are very grateful to the MCC, ECB and ICC, without whom this match would not be taking place.”

    All proceeds from the Hurricane Relief T20 Challenge will go towards rebuilding and renovating the five major venues damaged during the hurricanes as well as other community cricket facilities:

    • Ronald Webster Park, Anguilla - damaged in Irma

    • Sir Viv Richards Stadium, Antigua – temporarily converted to host refugees from Barbuda following Irma

    • Windsor Park Stadium, Dominica – damaged in Maria

    • A.O. Shirley Recreation Ground, BVI– damaged in Irma

    • Carib Lumber Ball Park, St Maarten – damaged in Irma

    1 / 5

    Damage to the Windsor Ground in Dominica

    Samuel Badree
    Carlos Brathwaite (Captain)
    Rayad Emrit

    Shahid Afridi, Shoaib Malik and Thisara Perera confirm participation for ICC World XI against the Windies

    "It’s a matter of great honour and pride to be selected in an ICC World XI," says Shoaib Malik.

    ICC World T20 winners – Shahid Afridi, Shoaib Malik and Thisara Perera – were the first set of players to confirm their participation for the ICC World XI in a T20I against the Windies to be played at Lord’s on 31 May. The match is being organised to raise funds for stadia in the Caribbean that were badly damaged following Hurricanes Irma and Maria last year.

    Afridi and Malik were part of the Pakistan squad that won the ICC World T20 2009 at Lord’s, while Perera was a member of the Sri Lanka side that lifted the silverware in Dhaka in 2014.

    The three World T20 winners will lend a lot of weight to the ICC World XI side which will see more names being added in what is expected to be a star-studded line-up led by England’s white-ball captain Eoin Morgan, who has already been confirmed to lead the side.

    Shahid Afridi said: “I am humbled to have been selected for such a noble cause. Cricket is one big family and no matter how hard and tough we play against each other, there is tremendous comradery within the group. As such, it is our moral and professional obligation to stand up and support whenever and wherever we can, to assist our members, colleagues and cricket fans.

    “Lord’s is an iconic venue and the perfect location for this match. I have some fond memories of this great venue, having played the finals of the ICC Cricket World Cup 1999 and the ICC World T20 2009, and I look forward to visiting it again in May with an aim to entertain the fans.”

    Shoaib Malik said: “It’s a matter of great honour and pride to be selected in an ICC World XI and a wonderful opportunity to play along with and against some of the biggest names in world cricket.

    “As much as the chance of figuring in such a select group, I also see this as an opportunity to contribute in a meaningful cause. We have all heard of the damage caused by the two hurricanes in the West Indies last year and it is really good to see so many cricketers come together for the objective of raising funds to repair the damage to cricket venues.

    “That the match is being played at Lord’s makes this event extra special for me. Lord’s obviously is one of the most revered cricket venues but I also have some very delightful memories there. One that really stands out is anchoring the chase along with Shahid Afridi when we beat Sri Lanka in the final to win the ICC World Twenty20 in 2009.”

    Thisara Perera said: “I’m privileged to have made the World XI side for a second time after having also played in the series against Pakistan in Lahore last year. I’m looking forward to the match at Lord’s next month with great enthusiasm as this is one of those rare opportunities when you get to rub shoulders with the best in the world. To be playing alongside so many top players from different countries will definitely be a high point of my career.

    “I’m also very happy because I have been given the opportunity to contribute in what I think is a very good cause. It is heartening to note that players have come together for helping rebuild stadia in the West Indies. The West Indies have contributed a lot to world cricket over the years and they deserve all support from our generation of players.”

    Carlos Brathwaite-led Windies too are a strong side boasting big names like Chris Gayle, Marlon Samuels, Samuel Badree and Andre Russell and will be looking to give off their best and show the might that helped them win the ICC World Twenty20 title two years ago.

    The match is being staged to raise funds to rebuild and restore five major cricket venues at the heart of Caribbean communities that were damaged by Hurricanes Irma and Maria.

    The tickets for the match are now on sale at https://tickets.lords.org/ with all proceeds going towards rebuilding and renovating these major venues as well as other community cricket facilities. The venues that will benefit include the Ronald Webster Park in Anguilla, the Sir Viv Richards Stadium in Antigua, the Windsor Park Stadium in Dominica, the A.O. Shirley Recreation Ground in the British Virgin Islands and the Carib Lumber Ball Park in St. Maarten.

    No, he has said that he has interest but aren't communicated by the authorities.

    Quotes from DJ

    What I said recently in an interview with a journalist in the Bangladesh Premier League was that, however, I don't see myself playing 50-overs cricket again, despite my interest, because of the lack of communication from the board. So I would challenge the chairman to say otherwise.

    The person who actually spoke to me was captain Jason Holder, during Caribbean Premier League," Bravo said, "And it was him I told that after just coming back from my 2017 Big Bash League injury my body wasn't ready to play one-day cricket in England, but when I'm stronger I would consider playing one-day cricket in 2018.

    So he is basically saying he isn't ready for international cricket. May be he is ready for t20 but he needs to state that. Problem is, players like him have caused problems for the windies and I'd say, if they wana be primadosnas than so be it.
