It is time for a blockbuster clash in Road Safety World T20 as Sachin Tendulkar’s India Legends lock horns with Kevin Pietersen’s England Legends on Tuesday. With some big names in action, it is certainly going to be a mouth-watering clash between two star-studded sides.
India Legends are coming on the back of a comprehensive 10-wicket victory against Bangladesh Legends. The bowling was very impressive as Pragyan Ojha, Yuvraj Singh and Vinay Kumar scalped 2 wickets each. Chasing a modest target of 110, the legendary opening pair of Sachin Tendulkar (33*) and Virender Sehwag (80*) were at their absolute best as India Legends went on to win the match by 10 wickets.
On the other hand, England Legends were also brilliant on Sunday as they went on to register a 7-wicket win over Mohammad Rafique’s side. Kevin Pietersen led from the front with an explosive 17-ball 42-run knock. In the bowling department, the newly-transformed Chris Tremlett also displayed his fast-bowling skills as he claimed 2 wickets.
With one of the best batting line-ups (Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag, Yuvraj Singh, Yusuf Pathan) up against a lethal bowling-attack (Monty Panesar, Ryan Sidebottom, James Tredwell, Matthew Hoggard), you just can’t take your eyes off this thriller on Tuesday.
