Sachin Tendulkar and Yuvraj Singh, the Indian cricket legends reached Australia to take part in the Bushfire relief match. Tendulkar requested the fans to donate as much as possible for the cause and Yuvraj hoped to work effectively together for the Big Appeal.

Tendulkar set for bushfire match

Tendulkar who will coach the Ricky Ponting XI on Sunday at Melbourne’s Junction Oval said in the press meet that it was Brett Lee who connected him with the CA executive. “I received a message from Brett Lee. Brett said that Kevin (Roberts, Cricket Australia’s chief executive) would like to be in touch with you.”

Sachin further added that the moment he heard about the cause, he was ready to join. “It was a no-brainer. From the moment I was asked, I said, ‘yes I’m more than happy to come here.’” Tendulkar called the situation catastrophic and explained how it important to save the wildlife. “This is an alarming situation, it’s catastrophic – that’s an understatement. You see the number of lives it has affected, not only humans but also wildlife which sometimes people don’t talk about. That is equally important. I’m so happy I’m here in whatever way to support the cause, to raise money.”

Speaking about the match he recalled how coming at a tender age of 18 in Australia helped him grow as a cricketer. “The competitive cricket that I played here at the age of 18 helped me a lot in my career, so I have a special feeling for Australia and Australian people.”

Yuvraj does not keen to face Lee

Yuvraj Singh, the Man-of-the-Tournament in World Cup 2011 joked how he would not like to face the devastating Lee. “I don’t know how I’m going to play the fast bowlers… I hope (Lee) is not bowling 150kph at this moment … If he’s bowling 150kph, I think I’ll be at the non-striker’s end.”

Yuvraj said that this a sad time for humanity and all must support each other to save the affected. “It’s sad to see people dying and more than a billion animals dying and some of the animals are (at risk of) going extinct. It’s sad times for humanity but we’re here to support each other. Hopefully we can get generate as much funds as possible around the world and get everyone back on their feet.”
