A SMILING row of some of the finest cricketers in history lined up for a photocall before today’s once-in-a-lifetime match at the home of the sport.

The Sachin Tendulkar-led Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) XI are playing the Shane Warne-led Rest of the World XI in a 50-over one-day game today to celebrate the bi-centenary of Lord's.

The teams were handpicked to feature some of the finest players ever to grace the hallowed surface at the Marylebone ground.

Rest of the World managed to set a target of 293/7 in their 50-over innings, with MCC currently chasing.
