It is time for another exciting clash in Road Safety World T20 as India Legends lock horns with South Africa Legends in Raipur. Both the teams faced a strong-looking England Legends in their previous match. While India Legends succumbed to a 6-run defeat against Kevin Pietersen’s side, South Africa Legends prevailed in a comprehensive 8-wicket victory. With two of the biggest names in world cricket leading their star-studded sides, Sachin Tendulkar and Jonty Rhodes will be hopeful of producing a thrilling cricket contest on Saturday.
Virender Sehwag and Sachin Tendulkar have looked in outstanding touch at top of the order throughout the tournament. After missing out in the previous contest, both of them will be raring to play a big knock in this contest. Pragyan Ojha has been very impressive with his left-arm spin bowling and could be lethal against South Africa Legends. Irfan Pathan was scintillating with his explosive hits in the previous contest and should be one of the players to watch out for on Saturday.
Wicket-keeper Morne van Wyk opening the innings, has the ability to score some quick runs in the powerplay. He could prove to be a certain danger for the Indian Legends bowlers. Skipper Jonty Rhodes has been leading from the front and has only got out once in 3 matches so far. While India Legends batsmen lost 5 wickets against the spin duo of Panesar and Tredwell in the previous match, off-spinner Thandi Tshabalala could prove to be the X-Factor in this contest.
