Indian batting great Sachin Tendulkar and legendary Australian spinner Shane Warne rang the opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange on Friday, becoming the first cricketers to perform the ceremonial activity at the world’s largest stock exchange.
Tendulkar and Warne are in the US as captains of an inaugural all-star line-up of 28 cricket legends from across the world for the first ever ‘Cricket All Stars’ series in the US. The two greats of the game visited the stock exchange to highlight the inaugural cricket series which will take place in New York, Houston and Los Angeles. They rang the opening bell at 9:30am New York time that marked the start of the trading day. The historic tour marks the first time Tendulkar and Warne will play on US soil.
