The US is about to get a taste of cricket, and arguably a better one than anyone has ever seen on Australian soil.
Shane Warne and Sachin Tendulkar will captain all-star sides in three exhibition games over the next week, starting at Citi Field, home of the New York Mets baseball team, tomorrow.
Of course, Warne has been busy on social media. This morning, he posted this shot of the All-Stars on their way to practice:
It’s like that cheesy pic your aunt’s got on the wall of the lonely cafe with James Dean and Marilyn Monroe in it. Or Warnie’s own “Ultimate Pool Party” mural.
We’ll let you look at it for a while. See how many you can recognise.
Here’s a hint – the teams have been chosen from:
Shane Warne, Matthew Hayden, Ricky Ponting, Michael Vaughn, Jonty Rhodes, Jacques Kallis, Andrew Symonds, Kumar Sangakkara, Saqlain Mushtaq, Daniel Vettori, Courtney Walsh, Wasim Akram, Allan Donald and Ajit Agarkar, Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag, VVS Laxman, Brian Lara, Saurav Ganguly, Mahela Jayawardene, Carl Hooper, Moin Khan, Muttiah Muralitharan, Graeme Swann, Curtly Ambrose, Shaun Pollock, Lance Klusener, Shoaib Akhtar and Glenn McGrath.
We got at least 17.
Let’s just take up a bit more space with another post from Warne of Brian Lara showing the US President how to bat:
