Legends of the game will be on view as some of the all-time greats look to recreate the great rivalries and drool-worthy cricket that everyone loved so much at the most famous of grounds.
Even if Tendulkar might not have the greatest of records here, Lord's is a special ground for the Little Master who returns to cricket after bidding goodbye to the sport last year in the most amazing fashion.
"It's always a special feeling. The atmosphere is fantastic," Tendulkar said. "However many times you come here, you feel special."
"You've got such amazing players here," he added on the bulging squad of players which includes Brian Lara, Muttiah Muralitharan, Rahul Dravid, Virender Sehwag, Adam Gilchrist and Kevin Pietersen, to just name a few. "The idea of this game is to celebrate the occasion and give something special to the spectators, compete in the right spirit and compete as hard as possible, and we're looking forward to the match.
The Warne-Tendulkar rivalry was one of the most mouth-watering ones, especially in the late 1990s, and just to watch that leg-spin of the blonde-haired maestro looking to flummox that big bat and even bigger talent of the little man should be worth the price of the ticket on its own.
"I want to get him out, which didn't happen that often. He wants to smash me, which happened a lot," Warne said of playing against Tendulkar. Hopefully I don't get the chance to bowl to Sachin."
Tendulkar admitted he has picked up the willow he wielded to ridiculous effect for 24 years only over the past week or so, adding with a smile the ball was still to hit the middle of the bat.
"To be honest, I've not played, right from my retirement from the time I got to London," Sachin said. "I started practising ten days ago. It's nice to be back in gear, play a few balls.
"That sound is always special, when you connect. I'm still trying to find the centre of the bat. I've watched a bit of cricket. I was with the Mumbai Indians during the IPL, but I've never felt like going out to bat."
