Shahid Afridi has proven to be a man of his word when despite suffering from an injured knee, he showed up to represent the ICC World XI for the charity match against the Windies at Lord’s on Thursday.

The match was held to raise funds to repair and renovate cricket facilities in the Caribbean that were damaged during the passage of hurricanes through the region in 2017.

The former Pakistan captain took 1 for 34 off his four overs as the Windies, batting first, compiled 199 for 4 from 20 overs. He made only 11 in a losing cause as the Windies bowled the ICC XI for just 127 to win by 72 runs, but what Afridi did afterwards will endear him to cricket fans worldwide.
