West Indies defeated ICC World XI team by massive 72 runs, in one-off the Hurricane relief T20 match at the Lord's in London.

The match had many entertaining moments, from Evin Lewis' blitz to the guard of honour for Shahid Afridi. However, it was one moment for which the ICC faced a backlash from the Twitter users after it awarded the charity match an international status. 

Former English cricketer Naseer Hussain live commentary, standing at first slip, didn't go down well with the viewers, leaving them wondering how seriously was the game being taken.

The picture went viral on social media with fans unimpressed with the turn of events.

The match was played to raise funds to rebuild cricket grounds in Anguilla and Dominica damaged by hurricanes Irma and Maria that swept through the Caribbean in September 2017. 

Afridi donated USD 20,000 to hurricane relief from his foundation, while all the players donated their match fees to the charity. The Pakistan all-rounder, who retired from mainstream international cricket two years ago, received a guard of honour at Lord's.
