As the Road Safety World T20 is back, it’s now time for an exciting clash between England Legends and Bangladesh Legends on Sunday. Bangladesh Legends come into this contest on the back of a heavy defeat against India Legends. On the other hand, Kevin Pietersen’s side will kick-off their campaign in Raipur. With so many big names coming together, it is certainly going to be a thrilling contest.
Matches: 37 | Runs: 1176 | Avg: 37.94 | SR: 141.52 | HS: 79
Matches: 34 | Wickets: 43 | Avg: 19.51 | ER: 6.9 | Best: 4/16
England Legends have a star-studded squad for the tournament and the fans will be pretty excited to see take the field for the first time on Sunday. Skipper Kevin Pietersen will be supported by Philip Mustard and Jonathan Trott in the batting department. However, it is their bowling line-up that looks lethal on paper. It features some really big names in the form of Ryan Sidebottom, Monty Panesar, Mathhew Hoggard and Chris Tremlett.
Bangladesh Legends, on the other hand, started their campaign on a really disappointing note. Facing a strong India Legends side, Mohammad Rafique’s side could only manage to put up 109 in the first innings. While Nazimuddin (49) impressed with the bat, none of the other batsmen could get going. The bowling department was also taken to the cleaners by Sehwag and Tendulkar as they chased the target in 10.1 overs. Bangladesh Legends will certainly be hoping to come up with a better performance on Sunday.
