Swashbuckling Indian batsman Yuvraj Singh, AFL great Luke Hodge and 16-year-old batter Phoebe Litchfield are the latest recruits for the bushfire relief cricket match on February 8.
The charity game, featuring sides captained by Ricky Ponting and Shane Warne, will be played as a curtain-raiser for the BBL final.
Singh, one of India's heroes in their triumphant 2011 World Cup at home, was sold for a then-record $3.3 million in the 2015 Indian Premier League auction.
The 38-year-old, who retired last year, will play alongside Wasim Akram, Justin Langer, Adam Gilchrist, Brett Lee, Shane Watson, Michael Clarke, Matthew Hayden and others in the star-studded contest that will raise funds for communities affected by the national bushfire crisis.
Indian icon Sachin Tendulkar had already been confirmed as coach of the Ponting XI, while West Indies great Courtney Walsh will mentor the Warne XI.
Hodge, who won four premierships with Hawthorn, will pad up alongside NSW State of Origin coach Brad Fittler.
Litchfield, the teenage sensation who hails from Orange and made her women's BBL debut earlier this summer, joins legend and Sydney Thunder teammate Alex Blackwell plus internationals Elyse Villani and Grace Harris in the clash.
The venue for the game won't be decided until the BBL qualifier on January 31, which will determine who hosts the final in the following week.
