Former West Indies star batsman Brian Lara has additionally agreed to play in it.
Brian Lara will feature in the Bushfire relief match on February 8, Cricket Australia have confirmed.
Brian Lara who scored over 20,000 worldwide runs before retiring in 2007, will join his former rival Ricky Ponting in the squad.
Anthony Everard, Cricket Australia Executive General Manager of Fan Engagement, said it's going to be one of the biggest days ever for cricket.
Cricket Australia on Saturday announced the full squad for the upcoming Bushfire Bash. It should be noted that this game will be played for the victims of the widespread bushfire victims that recently affected a big part of Australia including its capital Canberra. Apart from Yuvraj Singh and Wasim Akram, he will be only the third overseas player to participate in the charity match.
The match will be a 10-over-per-side contest with a five-over Powerplay and no bowling restrictions.
Sachin Tendulkar and former Caribbean pacer Courtney Walsh were previously announced as non-playing coaches. Dan Christian, Holly Ferling and Australian Rules football great Nick Riewoldt have also confirmed their participation in the game. Along with the trio, a host of legendary Australian cricketers like Adam Gilchrist, Brett Lee, Justin Langer, Matthew Hayden, and Michael Clarke have also signed up. Skippers Ponting and Warne will finalize their respective XIs for the match in the coming days.
All proceeds and funds raised on the day will go to the Australian Red Cross Disaster Relief and Recovery Fund.
Bowlers will not have over limits, fielders can sub on and off as it suits, while captains will have the ability to substitute batsmen during an innings.
"We can't wait to see Lara out on the SCG with the likes of Yuvraj Singh, Shane Warne, Grace Harris, Ricky Ponting, Michael Clarke, Adam Gilchrist, Brett Lee, Mike Hussey, Matthew Hayden and Elyse Villani".
