Tamim Iqbal left Dhaka Sunday and reported to the ICC World XI squad that will now be led by former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi

The ICC World XI, featuring Bangladesh opener Tamim Iqbal, are set to lock horns with the West Indies in a Hurricane Relief T20I Challenge at Lord’s in London Thursday.

Tamim left Dhaka Sunday and reported to the ICC World XI squad that will now be led by former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi. The side were previously declared with England limited-overs skipper Eoin Morgan as the captain. Morgan however, pulled himself out from the charity game Tuesday due to a fractured finger.

Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib al Hasan and India’s Hardik Pandya are the other cricketers who have pulled out from the match. Both Shakib and Pandya expressed need of a break amid the hectic schedule.

Tamim, the only Bangladeshi in the ICC World XI squad, will be sharing the dressing room with Sam Billings, Dinesh Karthik, Rashid Khan, Shoaib Malik, Mitchell McClenaghan, Thisara Perera, Mohammed Shami and others.

Meanwhile, the West Indies will be led by their T20I captain Carlos Brathwaite and will feature Chris Gayle, Evin Lewis, Andre Russell, Marlon Samuels and others.

The ICC granted the fixture international status and the funds raised from the game will be used to renovate stadiums damaged by Hurricanes Irma and Maria last year in September in the Caribbean.

The game is scheduled to start at 11pm, Bangladesh standard time, and will be televised live on Star Sports.
