The much-anticipated India vs Rest of the World match is all set to take place next month. There were doubts over the game but the BCCI has given the match the go ahead. Last month, reports emerged that the much is likely to take place on August 22 between the current India players and a team of overseas stars.

It all began after the Indian government reportedly proposed a match between India and the Rest of the World as a part of the ongoing Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav celebrations. The government had asked BCCI to organize the India vs Rest of the World Match on August 22. There were also reports suggesting that the active cricketers were to participate in the match.
