KXIP vs KKR Live Score

Carlos Braithwaite will be leading West Indies, while Shahid Afridi will walk out to the toss for the World XI.

Evin Lewis, Marlon Samuels, Denesh Ramdin and Andre Russell all made contributions as the West Indies comprehensively defeated a World XI by 72 runs in the Hurricane Relief T20 Challenge.

Afridi donated Dollars 20,000 to hurricane relief from his foundation, while all the players donated their match fees to the charity. Part of the campaign was a cricket match that was played at Edgbaston and featured the likes of Imran Khan and Ian Botham in the World XI.

The World XI were bowled out for 127 with 20 balls to spare.

With a rich worldwide career of 11,196 runs, 541 wickets, the former Pakistan captain, popularly known as Boom Boom, was given the captaincy role after England's Eoin Morgan pulled out of the match because of a fractured finger. Sandeep thus joined a star-studded lineup of Shahid Afridi, Tamim Iqbal, Dinesh Karthik, Rashid Khan, Mitchell McClenaghan, Shoaib Malik, Hardik Pandya, Thisara Perera and Luke Ronchi.

Pandya has also opted out since then, to be replaced by countrymate Mohammed Shami, who has also been swapped with Tymal Mills, while Sam Billings has filled in for Morgan.

The squad still wears an extremely strong look.

But the most exciting is perhaps the spin attack, or the leg-spin attack, with the two Rashids and Lamichhane all available for selection, not to forget Afridi himself.

Carlos Brathwaite, who hit Ben Stokes for four successive sixes to win the Windies the last ICC World T20 at Kolkata's Eden Gardens in April 2016, is the captain of the Windies side, and the squad has some fantastic T20 talent in their midst.

Lewis struck 58 off 26 balls, including five sixes and as many fours in a West Indies' total of 199 for four with Marlon Samuels contributing 43 and Denesh Ramdin 44 not out.

Meanwhile, the Windies XI obliterated the World XI side by the massive margin of 72 runs.
