In 2012, Tendulkar received an honorary life membership of SCG granted by Cricket Australia, The Government of New South Wales and the Sydney Cricket Ground Trust. He became the first-ever overseas player to receive the honour. The former Indian batting maestro was handed a frame, book and a head and shoulder bust of Don Bradman. Tendulkar has scored four Test centuries at the SCG. He also has one century in ODIs at the venue.
Tendulkar and Yuvraj will take part in the Bushfire Cricket Bash fundraiser match for the Australian bushfires. While Yuvraj will be part of the Gilchrist XI, Tendulkar will coach Ponting XI.
