After a thrilling and entertaining opening edition, the Road Safety World Series comes for the second edition where the India Legends will face South Africa Legends in the first match on 10 September. The tournament will include eight teams.
The Indian team will be captained by Sachin Tendulkar with the likes of Irfan Pathan, Yuvraj Singh, and Harbhajan Singh on his side. Whereas, the Proteas will have Jonty Rhodes as their leader along with stars like Lance Klusner, Johan Botha and Vernon Philander.
The India Legends have a dominant batting lineup which is led by the Master blaster Sachin Tendulkar. Similarly, they have also roped in ‘Mr IPL’ Suresh Raina who recently retired from all forms of cricket along with other explosive batters like Yuvraj Singh and Yusuf Pathan to round up their batting order. Similarly, their bowling lineup includes stars like Irfan Pathan, Harbhajan Singh, Abhimanyu Mithun and Pragyan Ojha who have a lot of variety and experience in playing in these conditions.
South Africa Legends had a disappointing end to their season last year as they lost in the semi-final to Sri Lanka Legends by 8 wickets. But in this edition, the Proteas have made a lot of changes to their squad but Jonty Rhodes still remains their skipper. The South Africans' biggest strength lies in their all-rounders Vernon Philander and Lance Klusener, who consistently performed well last year. Their batting includes the likes of Jacques Rudolph, Henry David and Alviro Peterson who will be crucial in the tournament.
