LONDON - Pakistan's star all rounder Shahid Afridi will lead the ICC World XI side against West Indies in the one-off T20I at Lord's on May 31 after England's limited-overs skipper Eoin Morgan pulled out of the contest due to fractured finger.

Morgan's national teammate Sam Billings will replace him in the squad.
