Windies vs World XI - Only T20I

Series: Windies v World XI in England, 2018
Venue: Lord's, London
Date: 31 May 2018

World XI 127/10 (16.4 Ovs) RR: 7.62 | Windies won by 72 runs

commentary

That's it from the one-off T20I. More cricket action coming your way from tomorrow with the England-Pakistan second Test. Tune in to that. For now, goodbye and take care!

21:10 Local Time, 20:10 GMT, 01:40 IST: The T20 World Champions lived up to their billing as World XI were no match for them. They lost four wickets inside four overs and never really got going. Thisara Perera's career best prolonged the game and gave the spectators some more time to donate to the charitable cause. We also saw Afridi bow out one final time in an international game and the reception he got from the Lord's crowd was outstanding. Badree and Russell started it all with the ball, while Williams finished it.

Kesrick Williams to McClenaghan, out Caught by Nurse!! All over. Windies win by 72 runs. Mills is not coming out to bat as he injured his hammy while fielding. Windies take a lap of the ground to appreciate the support they got. The off-cutter angled across the left-hander, McClenaghan wanted to heave it across the line and ended up slicing it towards sweeper cover, the ball was dipping in front of Nurse, but he does extremely well to run forward, dive full length and take it cleanly. McClenaghan c Nurse b Kesrick Williams 10(8) [6s-1]

Kesrick Williams to McClenaghan, THAT'S OUT!! Caught!!

Kesrick Williams to Perera, out Caught&Bowled!! Stunner! He just plucks out a stunner and then throws the ball away nonchalantly. Swag! Perera's T20I career best comes to an end. He was deceived by the slower delivery, wanted to heave it towards cow corner, but miscued it into the night sky. The ball went a long way up and Williams was the only one close to the ball, he ran back towards mid-on, dived full length and caught it with both hands. Perera c and b Kesrick Williams 61(37) [4s-7 6s-3]

Keemo Paul to Afridi, out Caught by Nurse!! End of Afridi. Probably the last time he walks off in an international game. Boom Boom gets a standing ovation and he acknowledges it with a hand wave to all parts. A true entertainer! Low full toss and a younger and more fitter Afridi would have have slotted it into the stands, but not the hobbling one, whips it with a lot of bottom hand and picks out Nurse at deep mid-wicket. Afridi c Nurse b Keemo Paul 11(12) [4s-1]

A Russell to Perera, FOUR, sharp short delivery and that caught Perera by surprise, he is clearly late on the hook shot and the top-edge flies over the short fine fielder. It has enough legs to reach the boundary rope
11.3
4
A Russell to Perera, FOUR, fifty for Perera. He is keeping World XI in the game. Loopy slower delivery, dips right in front of Perera, who waits a second before squeezing the drive past Samuels at extra cover. Needs to bat all the way if World XI have to get close

Shahid Afridi, right handed bat, comes to the crease

7.4
0
Brathwaite to Shoaib Malik, out Lbw!! Five down. The skipper strikes in his first over. Malik is not happy but has to make the walk back. Bit of inward movement for Brathwaite, Malik prods forward and is beaten on the inside edge. Struck around the kneeroll and the impact was the question. It was fine and HawkEye shows it to be clipping the middle stump. Shoaib Malik lbw b Brathwaite 12(10) [4s-1]
