New Delhi: Indian batting legend Sachin Tendulkar is looking forward to the Cricket All Stars Series 2015 in November comprising legends who have retired from international cricket.

Speaking to CNN IBN, the batting maestro said that since he had retired from international cricket, he was excited about the thought of holding the cricket bat once again.

Tendulkar added that he enjoyed playing for the MCC Bicentenary celebrations at Lord's last year where the idea to for such a series culminated in his mind.

The Little Master also said that even though the players will play serious cricket, it would be more about having fun since there was a pressure and responsibility while playing for the country.

When asked whether the likes of Wasim Akram and Allan Donald could still trouble the batsmen with their pace, Sachin said, "I think there are guys who will bowl reasonably sharp. I won't be surprised if couple of guys go past 140 plus."

The series will see Sachin’s Blasters lock horns with Shane Warne’s Warriors in three matches scheduled to be played in the United States.
