Lord’s to host friendly T20 for Hurricane relief

Afp, London     15 February, 2018 12:00 AM printer

The West Indies will face a Rest of the World XI in a lone Twenty20 match at Lord’s to raise funds for Caribbean cricket grounds damaged by recent hurricanes.

The reigning World Twenty20 champions will face the World XI on May 31 in a match that will be broadcast live on Sky Sports.

Both James Ronald Webster Park in Anguilla and Dominica’s Windsor Park Stadium were damaged as a result of Hurricanes Irma and Maria.

Now the International Cricket Council has granted the match international status, with England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) president Giles Clarke, an ICC board member, helping co-ordinate the match.
