He became the first cricketer to make an global debut for a combined team (World XI/Asia XI/Africa XI). Afridi stepped in as the XI skipper after England's Eoin Morgan pulled out due to injury.

Rashid Khan eventually pinned Lewis lbw with the third ball of his spell, but Gayle at the other end was never allowed to get going.

Earlier, with the West Indians cruising to 51/0 in the powerplay, Afghan leg-spinner Rashid Khan managed to draw first blood with the wicket of the risky Lewis in the 8th over before off-spinner Malik packed back Gayle, who failed to get going.

However, former Pakistan captain Afridi found it a ideal opportunity - to make fun of the Afghan spinner as he repeated Rashid's gestures.

The mystery leg-spinner was on the expensive side as he conceded 48 runs in his four-over quota.

The match was staged to raise funds to rebuild and restore five major cricket venues in the Caribbean that were damaged by Hurricanes Irma and Maria previous year.

The magazine had since gone through several reboots, including in 2009, when billionaire Peter Brant purchased the publication . Baron resigned from the publication last month after working there for more than 10 years.

Afridi donated United States dollars 20,000 to hurricane relief from his foundation, while all the players donated their match fees to the charity.

His second ball drew Andre Fletcher down the track then spun past his edge for a simple stumping, whereupon Afridi embarked on that familiar star-shaped celebration, just as he had done on this very ground in 2009, after hitting the winning runs in the World T20 final.

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

Lewis played a sure-footed inning of 58 runs off 26 balls, with five boundaries and six each at the strike rate of 223.07.

Denesh Ramdin and Marlon Samuels chipped in with 44* and 43 runs respectively.

In response, the World XI fell apart like a house of cards.
