West Indies win big against Tamim’s World XI

A star-studded West Indies line-up proved too powerful for their World XI counterparts on an entertaining if one-sided evening at Lord's, as a quartet of cameos from Evin Lewis, Marlon Samuels, Denesh Ramdin and Andre Russell set up a hefty 72-run victory in the one-off Hurricane Relief T20 Challenge.

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.

Whichever combination Afridi and Andy Flower, the World XI coach, decide to put out on the field should provide excellent competition to the defending ICC World T20 champions.

Despite the match between the West Indies and World XI being exclusively for charity, there were still serious question marks over Hussian's position on the field, given the match had full worldwide status, and players' stats were officially counted towards their records.

The report came out after Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about his contacts with Russians. He was also unfamiliar with rumors of a Dan Conner-centric Roseanne spinoff , saying "you've heard more than I have".

Michael Bevan, one of the biggest cult heroes to have played for the Australian cricket team, played a blinder of an innings against Asia for the ICC World XI at Dhaka in April 2000.

With a rich global 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.

World XI got off to a torrid start in the chase, losing their top three batsmen for cheap scores.

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.

Williams was taken to a tie-break in the opening set by the big-serving Pliskova, with the scoreline eventually 7-4 in her favour. She admitted the suit also had some functionality to it, after she suffered through blood clots after Olympia's birth.

Kesrick Williams took three for 42 and Andre Russell two for 24 in a charity match to raise funds to rebuild cricket grounds in Anguilla and Dominica damaged by hurricanes Irma and Maria that swept through the Caribbean in September 2017.

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

Carlos Brathwaite, West Indies' captain, was happy to be given first-use of the pitch.

FSU's Phil Cofer granted fifth year of eligibility to play for Seminoles
Fellow senior Carley Hoover entered the game for the final out of the game following Florida State's late inning comeback attempt. Despite not making it previous year , the Gamecocks earned an at-large bid to the tournament after the selection show Monday.

"So it's important for those of us who can to be able to use our profile for the greater good", he added.
