Sehwag is likely to be joined at the Eden Gardens by greats like his former India teammate Sachin Tendulkar, Sunil Gavaskar, Kapil Dev and Pakistan's Imran Khan, Waqar Younis, Wasim Akram and Intikhab Alam.

CAB sources said they would be presenting the greats mementoes prior to the start of the game that is expected to draw huge crowds at Eden Gardens.

The iconic stadium is expected to be filled to full capacity during the much-awaited game between the arch rivals.

One of India's greatest opening batsmen, Sehwag formally retired from international cricket in October 2015. He would also not take part in the coming IPL.
