Fast bowler Mohammed Shami has replaced allrounder Hardik Pandya in the ICC World XI for the one-off T20I against West Indies at Lord's on May 31. Pandya is suffering from a viral infection which ruled him out of the fixture.

All the proceedings from the charity match will be used to redevelop the damaged stadia in the hurricanes that struck various Caribbean islands last year.

England leg-spinner Adil Rashid has also been added to the squad which features players from all the major Test playing nations. He is the second player from England to be part of the squad along with skipper Eoin Morgan.

Nepal's bright prospect Sandeep Lamichhane is also part of the squad. Pakistan's Shahid Afridi will come out of retirement to be part of this game which carries international status.

ICC World XI: Eoin Morgan (captain) (England), Shahid Afridi (Pakistan), Tamim Iqbal (Bangladesh), Dinesh Karthik (India), Rashid Khan (Afghanistan), Sandeep Lamichhane (Nepal), Mitchell McClenaghan (New Zealand), Shoaib Malik (Pakistan), Thisara Perera (Sri Lanka), Luke Ronchi (New Zealand), Adil Rashid (England) and Mohammed Shami (India).
