Tendulkar will be coaching team Ponting XI in the Bushfire Fundraiser match which is to be played on February 9. Meanwhile, he has also urged fans to donate generously to support Australians affected by a “catastrophic” summer.
Notably, the Bushfire Fundraiser match, which was slated to be hosted at SCG on Saturday, was rescheduled by Cricket Australia on Thursday. The charity match will now be played at Junction Oval in Melbourne on Sunday.

Sachin Tendulkar is the leading Test run-scorer and the leading ODI run-scorer with phenomenal 34,357 international runs to his name. He also holds record for the most number of international centuries (49 in ODIs and 51 in Tests).
