The ICC World XI game against West Indies was given international status by the world cricketing body, however, Nasser Hussain's commentary spot - at first slip - didn't go down well with the viewers, leaving many wondering how seriously was the game being taken.

The viewers took to Twitter to vent their frustration at the proceedings,

The cricketing world came together to raise funds to rebuild cricket facilities across the Caribbean that were damaged by last year’s hurricanes as a Shahid Afridi-led ICC World XI took on Windies in a Twenty20 International match at Lord’s.

The game itself had some great moments, but the contest was one-sided with the Windies emerging victorious by 72 runs as the ICC World XI stumbled in their chase of 200.

It was a tale of two ends at the start of the Windies innings as Evin Lewis got off to an absolute flier and Chris Gayle struggled to find the middle of the bat. Lewis raced to 50 from just 23 balls as he flayed the World XI bowlers to all parts. Gayle was much more sedate, at one point batting out a maiden over from Tymal Mills.
