Two times World T20 Champions West Indies will lock horns against the World XI in a charity game at Lord’s. The match is being played for a good cause as the funds raised from this encounter will be used to redevelop stadia in the Caribbean which were damaged due to the hurricanes last year. West Indies will be honored to play at the iconic Stadium and will be the favorites considering their record in T20Is. They are the two-time champions and are extremely strong when it comes to the shortest format. The team possess some of the fierce cricketers in the line-up. The ICC World XI has gone through a lot of changes in the last few days as a few players pulled out due to various reasons at the eleventh hour. But the look of the team is exciting and most importantly, the cricketers from India and Pakistan will share the same dressing room. They will surely give a tough fight to the team from the Caribbean islands.
Best economical pick – West Indian Captain Carlos Brathwaite Played just few matches in IPL and performed quite well. Nobody will ever forget how he fared in perhaps the biggest moment of his cricketing career, smashing four consecutive sixes off Ben Stokes to get 19 off the last over in the final of the World T20 2016. His underrated military medium pace will be useful in changing the course of the match.
Top captains & vice captains – The Universe Boss Chris Gayle loves to rise to the occasion and he will be bracing up to lit up the Lord’s. He will open the innings for his team and should be able to give a good start up front. Also, his battle with Rashid Khan will be interesting as he had pummeled the leggie in the IPL recently. Rashid Khan had an absolute brilliant IPL season this year. Throughout the season, he took the big wickets for his side. He dismissed the likes of AB de Villiers, Virat Kohli, MS Dhoni, Chris Lynn, Andre Russell and many more. He finished the tournament as the second leading wicket taker with 21 wickets to his name in 17 matches.
Smart pick – Shahid Afridi will be playing his first international game after more than 2 years and no wonder all eyes will be on him during this encounter. He is an explosive batsman and is loved by the fans all over the world. He recently played for Karachi Kings in the Pakistan Super League and was in great form with the ball in hand.
Cautious Pick – Indian Fast Bowler Mohammad Shami has been largely disappointing with his bowling in the shortest format of game. He failed to deliver in the recently concluded Indian Premier League, where he took 3 wickets in the 4 matches he played and went for 9+ runs per over, so pick him in your team at your own risk.
My XI – Chris Gayle (Captain), Rashid Khan (Vice-Captain), Carlos Brathwaite, Shahid Afridi, Mitchell McClenaghan, Evin Lewis,Tamim Iqbal, Dinesh Karthik, Marlon Samuels, Sandeep Lamichhane, Thisara Perera
