Sehwag’s half century in All Star tournament.



The first match has been really special. We thoroughly enjoyed being here. New York, you were brilliant. Houston and LA, you are going to find it difficult to match them,” Tendulkar said at the post-match presentation.

Tendulkar told the media later, “For any sportsman the best thing one can do is to appreciate their performance and effort and that is what we all experienced today.”

Warne also voiced appreciation for the fans who had turned up to watch cricket in a baseball stadium.

“We wanted to be competitive. There was some skillful batting and bowling and fielding out there. But we know they will come back hard in Houston. A lot of the guys have trained hard, they are proud people, they don’t want to be embarrassed and they were not today,” he said.

While the match was played competitively, the camaraderie between the players was visible during the game.

The next match will be on November 11 in Houston, coinciding with the festival of Diwali. Tendulkar said Houston will have a “big reason to celebrate”.

Tendulkar said he hopes to make the series an annual event.

For the matches in Houston and Los Angeles, Warne and Tendulkar said they would make some changes in the line-up and rotate the players as they want all the cricketers to participate in the series.

Warne said some people had been sceptical on how the retired players will perform but “we didn’t take it easy, it was very competitive.”

Appearing with Tendulkar and Warne in the post-match press conference Shoaib Akhtar said it was “amazing” playing with Tendulkar.

“He is an amazing captain. What better brand than Sachin to promote the game abroad,” said Akhtar, who took two wickets for 26 runs.
