Andre Russell’s returns, Brathwaite to lead Windies at Lord’s

Windies

ICC: Proceeds from T20I against Rest of the World XI will go towards renovation of five grounds in the Caribbean that were affected by hurricanes last year.

Star all-rounder Andre Russell’s recent performances in ongoing IPL helped him secure a spot in the national team after a gap of almost 21 months as Cricket West Indies on Tuesday announced the 13-man squad for the Hurricane Relief T20 Challenge against the ICC Rest of the World XI to be held at Lord’s Cricket Ground, London, on Thursday, May 31.

Carlos Brathwaite will captain the side which also features the likes of explosive openers Evin Lewis and “Universe Boss” Chris Gayle – also returning to the squad following the Pakistan Series along with spinner Ashley Nurse.

The charity match is being staged with the support of the MCC, ECB and ICC to raise funds to rebuild and restore five major cricket venues at the heart of Caribbean communities that were damaged by Hurricanes Irma and Maria.
