    Lord's tsunami appeal match teams announced, not a single Pom in sight

    After Tendulkar & Lara were named skippers for the two teams participating in the fund-raiser match for victims of the December 26 tsunami in the Indian Ocean, the next item of interest would obviously have been the identities of their teammates. That suspense was also broken yesterday with the announcement of the teams. Not quite a who-is-who of international cricket, given that England are unrepresented and Australia contributing only Warne.

    It is bizarre though that a game being played at Lord's will not have a single English player. I am not counting Andy Flower as one. Obviously hasn't happened too many times. The first instance was the 1975 World Cup final between Australia & West Indies.
