Eoin Morgan, England’s white-ball captain, will lead the World XI in a T20I against West Indies at Lord’s on May 31. The match will raise funds towards restoration efforts in parts of the Caribbean hit by Hurricanes Irma and Maria in September last year. In particular, the proceeds will go towards restoring the cricket grounds in Dominica and Anguilla.
“I am delighted to captain the ICC World XI at Lord’s in May against the West Indies,” Morgan said. “The cricket family always comes together to support worthwhile causes and this one-off T20I, featuring some of the best players in the world will be a great spectacle at the home of cricket.
“I am sure the sporting public will come out in force and help raise money and awareness towards restoring parts of the Caribbean hit by Hurricanes Irma and Maria in September last year, which ripped through many communities in this beautiful part of the world.”
