MELBOURNE, Australia -- World cricket opened its collective hearts and wallets to the victims of the Asian tsunami with $11 million raised from the one-day charity match in Melbourne on Monday.
The Rest of the World XI beat an Asia XI by 112 runs but the result mattered little, as cricket's elite came together for a unique contest before 70,101 fans.
It was an inspirational occasion with old rivals unifying for the common cause of helping victims recover from the tsunami which killed more than 156,000 people"
