Former West Indies captain Darren Sammy will lead a Caribbean Select XI team against a Trinidad side in Port of Spain on on October 14 in a charity match to raise funds for the victims of recent hurricanes in the Caribbean.

West Indies all rounder Kieron Pollard will captain the Trinidad side.

The match will be played under the theme 'Rebuilding the Caribbean one over at a time'.  Alongside the proceeds from ticket sales - a tickets cost $100 - containers will be placed around the ground to collect canned items and clothing.

The Caribbean islands were ravaged by two Category 5 major hurricanes, Irma and Maria - the former being the most powerful recorded in the Atlantic since 2005 - among other hurricanes through August and September.
