Some of the legendary cricketers are about to meet in the United Sates. Sachin Tendulkar and Shane Warne are taking Cricket to unchartered destinations as they are set to captain opposing teams in a three match T-20 exhibition tour in the United States starting tomorrow, along with other legendary ex-cricketers.
According to the ESPNCricInfo, two greatest batsmen of their generation will now get a chance to bat together as Captain Sachin Tendulkar included Brain Lara in his team along with 13 other greatest cricketers of all time.
The first All-Stars match begins on Nov. 7 at Citi Field in New York with two more in Houston and Los Angeles on Nov. 11 and 14. While the first two matches are day games, the final match is slated to be played under lights at the Dodger Stadium in front of 56,000 capacity.
The facilities will acquire drop-in pitches and will be used with the strips being laid from second base extending out toward the center field wall.
In a recent interview Warne states, “To make history in America playing these cricket games, myself and Sachin walking out and tossing the coin in New York at Citi Field, will be a pretty epic moment”
The Cricket All Stars official website has come up with a video compilation which highlights some of the epic moments in the game’s history.
