Legends Shane Warne and Ricky Ponting to star in cricket's bushfire relief

Ricky Ponting and Shane Warne will captain the teams in Cricket Australia’s bushfire relief match, which will be played as a curtain-raiser to the Big Bash League final on February 8.

Ponting and Warne will be joined in the charity match teams by Australian coach Justin Langer and former stars Adam Gilchrist, Brett Lee, Shane Watson, Alex Blackwell and Michael Clarke.

The match will form part of a triple header of cricket on the same day, with Australia to host India in a women’s T20 international in Melbourne, and funds from all three matches will go to bushfire relief.
