FORM IS TEMPORARY BUT CLASS IS PERMANENT!
The much-awaited Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) versus Rest of World (RoW) match is finally upon us. The thought of watching the likes of Sachin Tendulkar, Shane Warne, Brian Lara, Muttiah Muralitharan, Rahul Dravid and Adam Gilchrist back in action after their retirement is a mouth-watering prospect. The occasion: 200th anniversary of the current Lordâ€™s ground.
The nerve cracking game of the gentlemen who retired from the sport years earlier is here! The captains: Sachin (MCC) and Warne (ROW).
The teams are listed below:
A contest between some of the most prolific batsmen in the history of the game against the two leading wicket-takers in Test cricket!
