Afridi provided another example of his often astounding big-hitting in the Asia Cup this week, and off-spinner Saeed Ajmal's talents are well known to cricket followers in this country after his prolific series against England in the United Arab Emirates in 2012.

Destructive Bangladesh opener Tamim Iqbal is also set to play in the match, on July 5, in which Sachin Tendulkar will lead the MCC against Shane Warne's RoW XI.
