NEW YORK: Sachin’s Blasters are all set to take on the Warne’s Warriors in the second T20 match of the three-match Cricket All Stars series on Wednesday.
In the first T20 match, the chants of ‘Sachin, Sachin’ filled the air but Sachin Tendulkar could not trump Shane Warne’s magic as the Indian icon’s Blasters went down to the Australian legend’s Warriors in the first ‘Cricket All Stars’ Twenty20 in Citi Field, New York.
Tendulkar was the undisputed favourite for the largely Asian crowd at a baseball stadium here but it was Warne, who weaved some old-time magic to lead his side to a six-wicket win.
