In the Hurricane Relief T-20 Challenge, the ICC World XI will face the West Indies at Lords on Thursday.

The World XI squad includes one player each from Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Nepal and Sri Lanka, and two players each from New Zealand and Pakistan.

Apart from Afridi, Shoaib Malik will also be a part of the ICC World XI.

Earlier, India fast bowler Mohammed Shami replaced all-rounder Hardik Pandya in the ICC World XI squad.

The Windies, the reigning ICC World Twenty20 champions, will be led by Carlos Brathwaite.

Chris Gayle, Marlon Samuels, Samuel Badree and Andre Russell are among the other leading players in the squad.

All the proceeds from the match will be used to redevelop the stadiums in the Caribbean, which were damaged due to hurricanes last year.

The venues that will benefit from this match include the Ronald Webster Park in Anguilla, the Sir Viv Richards Stadium in Antigua, Windsor Park Stadium in Dominica, the A.O. Shirley Recreation Ground in the British Virgin Islands and the Carib Lumber Ball Park in St Maarten.
