The players have been divided into two teams named Ponting XI and Gilchrist XI. Interestingly, Tendulkar will coach Ponting XI while current Australian Test captain Tim Paine will coach Gilchrist XI. Earlier, Tendulkar revisited the dressing room at the SCG. While sharing pictures from the dressing room, he wrote, “memories came flooding back today.”
Meanwhile, Cricket Australia (CA) rescheduled the match from Saturday afternoon at the SCG to Sunday at Junction Oval due to rain forecast. The change in date meant Shane Warne will miss out because of his other commitments.
