The match is scheduled to begin at 10pm Pakistan Standard Time.

Superstar opener Chris Gayle, the world's finest Twenty20 batsman, will suit up for the 6 p.m. (Noon Jamaica time) contest and is expected to be a massive pull as organisers seek to raise funds for five stadia in the Caribbean damaged last September by the passage of Hurricanes Irma and Maria.

"For me personally, every time I put on the maroon for the West Indies, it is a proper full worldwide game", Brathwaite said.
