What time the ICC World XI v/s West Indies match start?

A galaxy of stars were seen at Lord's to help raise funds for the refurbishment of five cricket stadia in the Caribbean that were damaged by hurricanes in 2017.

West Indies captain Carlos Brathwaite said: "For those affected by the hurricanes, there have been people left homeless, and have had their lives devastated". Officially, runners are no longer permitted in full global fixtures, but the ICC were happy in the circumstances to give him special dispensation. "We get to do what we wanted", he said at the toss.

Earlier this year in January, he had scripted record by becoming the first Nepalese cricketer to feature in IPL auction and eventually made his debut in the league for Delhi Daredevils towards the fag-end of the 2018 edition.

The former Pakistani cricketer, who has amassed more than 11,000 runs alongside taking 541 wickets in worldwide cricket was handed the role of captaincy for the charity match after England's Eoin Morgan was ruled out due to a broken finger.

Though action on the field is expected to be the attraction, the bigger cause will be the goal of the contest, organised as a collaborative effort by the England and Wales Cricket Board, the International Cricket Council, Cricket West Indies and the MCC.

ICC World XI required 200 runs to win, but fine bowling from the Carlos Brathwaite's side restricted the side to 127 runs in the T20I game staged with the support of the MCC, ECB and ICC to raise funds to rebuild and restore five cricket venues in the Caribbean that were damaged by Hurricanes Irma and Maria past year.

Brathwaite reiterated the significance of the match, while also expressing the importance of the money to be raised.

"For that to happen at the home of cricket, it's massive".
