The former West Indies batsman is the latest big-name to be selected for the historic 50-over fixture, which will Afghanistan's first ever game at the Home of Cricket.

During his international career, the 42 year-old notched up 11,867 Test runs at an average of 51.37 with a further 8,778 runs in One-Day Internationals.

He will face-up to an Afghanistan team that will feature the likes of spinner Rashid Khan and all-rounder Mohammad Nabi, - who both played for Sunrisers Hyderabad in this year’s IPL campaign.
