The team Warne’s Warriors has already won the series 2-0.
Earlier the first T20 was played at the New York’s Citi Field on November 7 while second at the Houston’s Minute Maid Park on November 11. Both the matches were comfortably won by Shane Warne’s team.
Besides other legendary cricketers from worldwide, four former Pakistani players including Wasim Akram, Shoaib Akhtar, Saqlain Mushtaq and Moin Khan are also part of Sachin’s Blasters and Warne’s Warriors.
In the inaugural T20, Wasim Akram and Shoaib Akhtar remained exceptional as ever. Shoaib bowled with a lot of aggression & passion, and picked up wickets of Matthew Hayden and Kumar Sangakkara. Likewise, Wasim gave away 16 runs in his 4 overs, though he remained wicket-less.
However in the second game, both Wasim and Shoaib conceded 48 runs each in their stipulated overs without taking any wicket.
But unlike both the fast bowlers, the off spinner Saqlain Mushtaq, who did not play the first T20, gave a brilliant performance while bowling in the second game. Saqlain took wickets of Sachin Tendulkar and Mahela Jayawardene for only 12 runs in his 3 overs.
The three-match all-stars series held in three different cities of the US was aimed at to introduce cricket in the United States and globalize it.
