The much-awaited, star-studded Road Safety World Series will kickstart its proceedings on 5th March. The first match will be contested between India Legends and Bangladesh Legends. The Road Safety series is an initiative organized by the Road safety cell of Maharashtra, to spread awareness about Road safety. Due to growing second wave of coronavirus, the matches will be played in Raipur instead of Mumbai. The series promises a lot of exciting and enthralling action as a lot of stalwarts of the game will be seen on the field after a long time.
India Legends have a quality team and boast of some incredible players who used to rule the roost during their playing days. Yusuf Pathan, R Vinay Kumar and Naman Ojha are the latest cricketers who hung up their boots from all forms of cricket in India and were added to the India Legends squad. Spearheaded by arguably one of the greatest Indian batsman of all time Sachin Tendulkar, India Legends start strong favorites ahead of this game.
Bangladesh Legends are one of the two latest additions to the coveted series. Earlier Brett Lee led Australia legends pulled out of the series because of the team’s inability to travel due to COVID restrictions in Australia. England Legends have also been added to the list of teams. The team will be led by former Bangladeshi captain Khaled Mahmud.
