Afridi, who retired from international cricket last year, returned to the big stage for one final time in a T20I which sought to raise funds for the cricket stadiums in the Caribbean damaged by the spate of hurricanes last year.
The 38-year-old was chosen to lead the ICC World XI after pre-designated skipper Eoin Morgan was ruled out of the clash with a fractured finger.Led by a 58-run innings from Evin Lewis, West Indies put up 199-4 on the board in their 20 overs after batting first at Lord’s. Afridi chipped in with the wicket of Andre Fletcher with his leg-spin as he finished with figures of 1-34 from his four overs. In reply, the World XI were bundled out for 127 runs inside 17 overs with pacer Kesrick Williams picking up three wickets. Afridi’s final innings in international cricket was a short-lived with the all-rounder being dismissed for just 11 runs by Ashley Nurse.
