After losing just one of their six games in the competition, both India Legends and Sri Lanka Legends are set to lock horns in the Road Safety World Series final in Raipur’s Shaheed Veer Narayan Singh International Stadium on Sunday, March 21.
This will be the second meeting between the two teams, having previously met on March 10 where Irfan Pathan’s 31-ball 50 had guided India Legends to a five-wicket victory.
Led by the flamboyant Sachin Tendulkar, India Legends were the first team to qualify for the semi-final where they squared off against West Indies Legends. Virender Sehwag, Sachin Tendulkar and Yuvraj Singh wreaked havoc as India cruised to a 12-run victory. Watch India Legends vs Sri Lanka Legends live!
Sri Lanka Legends have been riding on the back of their captain marvel, Tilakaratne Dilshan’s scorching form with the bat. The 44-year-old Dilshan is the Road Safety World Series’ highest scorer, having accumulated 250 runs in seven innings at an average of 50. The versatile Sri Lankan is also the highest wicket-taker in the competition, scalping 12 wickets at an average of 11.50.
Like India, Sri Lanka Legends have been utterly ruthless. They met South Africa Legends in the second semi-final and a Nuwan Kulasekara show was on the cards as they defeated their opponents by eight wickets.
