Lord’s to host Windies vs ICC World XI fundraising T20I

Lord’s CRICKET GROUND

LONDON: Cricket West Indies (CWI), the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) and Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) have joined hands to hold Twenty20 International at Lord’s on Thursday, 31 May 2018, to help raise funds for two stadia in the Caribbean that were damaged following the passage of Hurricanes Irma and Maria last year.

The match will be played between the Windies, the defending ICC World Twenty20 champions, and an ICC Rest of the World XI, and the ICC have confirmed their full support by granting the match Twenty20 International status. Giles Clarke, the ECB President and ICC Director, will assist in coordinating the match.

Windsor Park Stadium in Dominica and James Ronald Webster Park in Anguilla were harmed by the hurricanes – Irma in August/September and Maria in September/October – and the proceeds from the fundraising match will go towards their restoration, the MCC said in a statement.
