Each of them will have another 10 legends of the game on their side when Sachin's Blasters face Warne's Warriors in the first of the three T20 match scheduled between these two sides.

It will be a treat to watch Tendulkar batting alongside Brian Lara. The two were the greatest batsmen of their generation and it will be a treat to watch these two featuring in the same team. Former Indian openers Virender Sehwag and Sourav Ganguly are likely to be the pair for the first T20 clash.
Warne's bowling attack will have the likes of Pakistan's World Cup winning bowler Wasim Akram partnering with former South African pacer Allan Donald. Saqlain Mushtaq could get the nod ahead of New Zealand's Daniel Vettori to partner Warne in the spin division.
