Cricket legends Sachin Tendulkar and Shane Warne are planning to start a new Twenty20 competition with former international players.
A total of 28 retired cricketers will be recruited to play 15 matches in the League over next three and half years, with players paid up-to US$25,000 per match.
Earlier in January, Shane Warne had set Twitterati abuzz with this message:
Me & the little master have an exciting announcement to make soon. We look forward to sharing it with… http://t.co/rd8bt0TsvW

According to a report, Aussie biggies Brett Lee, Ricky Ponting, Adam Gilchrist and Glenn McGrath have been approached with an offer to join the league.
Englishmen Michael Vaughan and Andrew Flintoff as well as South African all-rounder Jacques Kallis have all been approached with the offer.
US will host the first series in September, with matches being played in cities like New York, Los Angeles and Chicago.
With this the wait has begun though an official announcement of ‘All Stars Cricket League’ is yet to be made. Watching our favourite old guns on the field is like a dream come true.
