Tendulkar and Warne are in the US as captains of an inaugural all-star line-up of 28 cricket legends from across the world for the first ever 'Cricket All Stars' series in the US.
   
Tendulkar and Warne will visit the stock exchange to highlight the inaugural cricket series which will take place in New York, Houston and Los Angeles. They will ring the opening bell at 9:30m New York time that will mark the start of the trading day.
   
The historic tour marks the first time Tendulkar and Warne will play on US soil. The 'Cricket All-Stars' kicks off on November 7 at Citi Field in New York City with a special opening ceremony prior to the match as well as other functions and galas.

In the past, several Indian dignitaries, including political leaders and businessmen, have rung the opening and closing bell at the stock exchange and at NASDAQ. 

Given that cricket is not a popular sport in America, it is the first time that cricketers will ring the ceremonial bell at the stock exchange. Through extensive promotions and media appearances, Tendulkar said the idea behind the series is not only to popularize the game in America but to globalize it as there is need to have more countries play the sport competitively in tournaments like the World Cup.
