The cricketing fraternity will see the legends of the game return to action in Road Safety World Series in Raipur from March 2 to 21. Last year Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium hosted the event before it was called off midway due to the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic.
Last year, India Legends, Sri Lanka Legends, Australia Legends, South Africa Legends, and West Indies Legends played in the event. But Brett Lee’s Australia won’t be a part of the tournament this year. Therefore, the organisers have replaced his team with Bangladesh Legends and England Legends.
The group stages will be played between March 2 and 16 while the semifinals will take place on March 17 and March 18. The final is scheduled for Sunday, March 21. The India Legends are atop the points table with wins in both their matches. They will resume their journey against Bangladesh.
