The cricketing fraternity will have a chance to witness the legends of the game once again but this time in a slightly different fashion.
The retired players from all over the world will be playing a total of three T20 matches in United States of America in order to promote the game in this part of the world. The two teams will be led by the great Australian leg spinner Shane Warne, Warnes’s Warriors, while the other one will be marshaled by Indian legend Sachin Tendulkar, Sachin’s Blasters, with the first match beginning today.
Both the teams will have start studded players in their lineups as the players look to revive old rivalries and be at it once again.
Pakistan’s fast bowlers Wasim Akram, who is regarded by many as the best fast bowler in the world, will also feature in the match alongside world’s fastest bowler Shoaib Akhtar, the ‘Doosra’ inventor Saqlain Mushtaq and the wicket keeper batsman Moin khan.
West Indies legend Brian Lara who used to decimate bowlers of his time will also be part of this epic clash. Sri Lankan spin maestro Murlitharan will also turn a few and dazzle the batsman once again.
Apart from the few names that I have mentioned a lot of other players will also lit up this event and please the fans who are watching it live at the Stadium and through the worldwide broadcasting through TV channels.
The squads for both of these illustrious side are worth taking a look

The matches will be played on three venues across the US in span of 7 days. The players arrived earlier in the piece in order to prepare for the match and flex their muscles once again. The matches will surely help in promoting cricket in America and its surrounding areas and hopefully will take cricket to a whole new level as the sport needs to spread in other parts of the world and not just stay confined to a limited number of countries.
