‘‘ It’s the least I can do,’’ Warne posted on his Twitter account Warne888 yesterday, adding ‘‘ let’s raise lots of $$’’.
Former New Zealand captain Stephen Fleming has o r g a ni s e d t he March 1 3 match, which will also feature ex-Test batsman Martin Crowe. Christchurch-born Fleming said he expected a full house and the Basin Reserve and the cricketing community was keen to help.
Fleming said he was visiting the city the day before the February 22 quake and counted himself lucky to have escaped the disaster.
