Melbourne, Apr 2 (ANI): Cricket star Shane Warne, actor Hugh Jackman and former British prime minister John Major are likely to come together for a Hollywood cricket match in Los Angeles.
Singer Ozzy Osbourne might also join the Hollywood and cricket A-listers for a Twenty20 game to be held in LA’s Woodley Cricket Field on May 3.
While the teams are yet to be decided, the English side has already roped in 65-Test veteran batsman Graham Hick to lead their team, reports the Herald Sun.
Jackman, Rupert Murdoch, Osborne, Major, talkshow king Michael Parkinson and English cricketer Simon Jones have agreed to sit on the event’s honorary board, and the organisers hope that some of them might also agree to play the game.
Australian spinner Warne has extended his support for the event, raising the prospect of taking the field for the Aussies.
Organisers said they expect to finalise the teams in the next fortnight. (ANI)
