On the night, the ICC World XI were no match for the West Indies who scored an imposing 199-4 in their 20 overs, mainly down to some great hitting by Evin Lewis 58, Marlon Samuels 43 and Denesh Ramdin 44. In reply, the ICC World XI batting line up never got going and only Thisara Perera 61 managed any sort of a score with Kesrick Williams 3-42, the pick of WIndies bowlers. The winner - Hurricane Relief and a great evening was had by all!
