London - Rest of the World captain Shane Warne won the toss and elected to bat against the MCC in their Lord's bicentenary match on Saturday.

The one-day fixture saw two star-studded sides featuring many of the game's recently retired greats and current stars come together for a match celebrating the 200th anniversary of Marylebone Cricket Club's move to its current headquarters ground of Lord's in north-west London in 1814.

Leg-spin great Warne's Rest of the World team included his former Australia team-mate Adam Gilchrist, exiled England international Kevin Pietersen, Sri Lanka hero Muttiah Muralitharan and current Australia paceman Peter Siddle.

India's Sachin Tendulkar, cricket's all-time leading Test and one-day international run-scorer captained a MCC team featuring fellow batting greats Brian Lara and Rahul Dravid while contemporary cricket was represented by the likes of dynamic Australia batsman Aaron Finch and Pakistan off-spinner Saeed Ajmal.
