The charity game was slated to be played between teams captained by greats Warne and Ricky Ponting as a curtain-raiser for Saturday's BBL final at the SCG.

"It's not ideal but I've got my method that I can hopefully cope with anything thrown my way".

The Melbourne Stars have avoided an embarrassing straight-sets finals exit after blitzing the Sydney Thunder by 28 runs in their BBL preliminary final at the MCG.

"I mean, we can't control the weather, can we?"

"I'm really looking forward to it".

The match was earlier to be performed on 8 February on the Sydney Cricket Ground. While the Sixers have peaked at the right time and will be heading to the final on the back of a five-match winning streak.

Thunder wicketkeeper Jay Lenton grassed a sitter down the leg-side when Stoinis was just 19, with the massive moment nearly instantly releasing the hoodoo pressure that had threatened to once again overwhelm the Stars in the finals. Team-mates and opponents alike have spoken of days and sessions in which Coulter-Nile "clicks" and turns a game, and here he did it in the field with the ball.

"We've bounced back from every single setback or whenever a team's done well against us the next time we've played them we've seemed to have bounced back quite well", Henriques said.

One of the Thunder's strongest suits against the Hurricanes and the Strikers was the whippy wrist spin of Jono Cook, who had returned figures of 5 for 37 from the two finals and revelled in bowling second to put opponents under pressure.

Smith's Sixers will be the team that benefits most if the match is washed out.

"I got a bit lucky but Stoin kept me in the game", man of the match Larkin said.

"If it's going to be raining and things like that, it'll make things really hard".

"The games that I've been a part of, we've had some good crowds and plenty of people out supporting us".

"I love playing for the Melbourne Stars".

"I'm not going to shy away from it, it's going to be challenging", Lyon said.

It was a similar soggy story at the same venue earlier this season, when Dwarshuis was bowling to Melbourne Stars skipper Maxwell and an attempted offcutter went horribly awry.

Regarded as one of the greatest batsmen ever, Tendulkar holds the record of being the highest run-scorer of all time in global cricket, having notched up 18,426 runs in ODIs and 15,921 runs in Test matches.
