Lord's to witness Tendulkar vs Warne

9:19 am on 6 February 2014

English cricket fans are set to get one more chance to see the recently-retired Indian star Sachin Tendulkar and Australian great Shane Warne in action at Lord's.

The pair have been confirmed as captains for a match marking the north-west London ground's 200th anniversary.

Tendulkar will lead Lord's owners, the Marylebone Cricket Club, and former Australia leg-spinner Warne the Rest of the World in a 50-overs per side match at the 'home of cricket' on July the 5th.

The MCC XI will also include Tendulkar's former India team-mate Rahul Dravid, returning to the scene where he scored 95 on his Test debut, against England in 1996 - a match where fellow India debutant Sourav Ganguly made a hundred.
