West Indies

9.25pm: Right, that's it from us for tonight. Thanks for your comments, and a pat on the back to everyone following this game around the world... Well done West Indies, and hopefully a lot of good comes from this back in the Caribbean. Cheerio!

9.20pm: Here's West Indies captain Carlos Brathwaite: "Massive thank you to everyone who came, and Shahid and the World XI boys for taking the time to come. Hopefully we've raised some money to benefit people back home and help the infrastructure. People have been struggling, but this good feeling will spread throughout the Caribbean. Hopefully we can get the electricity back on and make people feel better."

World XI captain Shahid Afridi: "They are champions and they played like champions. Want to thank ICC for inviting me, being part of a good force. We have to help each other through sports, cricket, if people are struggling with health or education, we should support each other. I'm lucky to finish my career at the Home of Cricket, thanks to Andy Flower and everyone for giving me the opportunity. I'm struggling with my fitness, but because of this cause I'm here."

Afridi, who is playing his final international game, then announces a $20,000 donation to the relief fund from his foundation - which is very decent of him.

Evin Lewis is Man of the Match: "It was a pretty decent wicket, bit on the slow side. We went out there and scored almost 200 and then defended. It's always good to give back, the people of Dominica will feel relieved that we did something for them, and got a victory as well. Important that we make the most of every opportunity to play for West Indies."

9.10pm: The West Indies players go for a tour of the ground, saluting the crowd. They have romped to victory here, lighting up Lord's with an all-action performance - and raising money for the Hurricane Relief fund to boot. Well done everyone.

"I don't think this was the 100 ball cricket everyone was talking about. :P" chuckles Siddharth Arun. Perhaps the World XI were secretly trialing the format for the ECB?

16.4KOK Williams to MJ McClenaghan, OUT, No run, mighty slog from McClenaghan, flies up over cover - and Nurse takes a blinder on the run! They check for the no-ball, but it's fine, Williams has sealed a 72-run win for West Indies with his third wicket of the night.
