Indian batting superstar Sachin Tendulkar, who is coaching Ponting XI at Bushfire Cricket Bash, has urged fans to contribute liberally to encourage Australians affected with a”devastating” summer.
Since September 2019, Australia has fought a bushfire catastrophe that has maintained at least 33 lives and that of countless creatures.
Tendulkar also disclosed former Australian fast bowler Brett Lee was the conduit for his participation in Sunday’s charity match scheduled to be performed in the Junction Oval in Melbourne. “Brett stated that Kevin (Roberts, Cricket Australia’s chief executive) would love to be in contact with you.
“This was a no-brainer. By the moment I had been asked, I said,’yes I am more than pleased to come here”’, he added.
Tendulkar, among the best batters in cricket history and arguably the most well-known figure that the game has generated, also stated he was moved from the devastation due to both wildlife and people from the bushfires lately.
“This is an alarming situation, it is devastating — that is an understatement,” said Tendulkar. “You find the amount of lives it’s influenced, not just people but also wildlife which occasionally folks don’t speak about. That’s every bit as important.
“I am so happy I am here in whatever way to support the reason, to raise money,” he added.
Yuvraj Singh, who performed 40 Tests and 304 ODIs in an global career that spanned 17 years, will undoubtedly be a part of their Gilchrist XI. Even the flambouyant all-rounder, who famously struck Stuart Broad for six successive sixes at 2007 Earth T20, was asked if he expected to replicate these feats on Sunday.
“I do not know whether I will have the ability to hit one in the present time,” Singh laughed.
“I really don’t understand how I will perform the quick bowlers…I expect (Lee) isn’t bowling 150kph now… If he is bowling 150kph, I believe I will be in the non-striker’s ending,” he added.
