Legendary cricketers Sachin Tendulkar and Courtney Walsh will now be part of the Bushfire Cricket Bash scheduled on 8th February. The bushfire relief match will feature star-studded lineups including the likes of Brett Lee, Michael Clarke, Shane Watson and Adam Gilchrist.
Tendulkar and Walsh have thus been handed the coaching roles for the enthralling contest. The Indian batting maestro will coach the Ricky Ponting-led side while Walsh will serve as the coach for the team captained by Shane Warne.
"We are absolutely honoured to be welcoming Sachin and Courtney back to Australia where they both enjoyed a lot of success as players, and we can't wait to have them involved in what is going to be a special day"- Cricket Australia chief Kevin Roberts said.
