Indian legends will take on their Bangladesh counterparts in the first match of the Road Safety World Series at the Shaheed Veer Narayan Singh International Cricket Stadium in Raipur on March 5. England legends will open their account against Bangladesh on March 7 while India will take on the English side in their second match on March 9. The semi-finals of the tournament are slated to be played on March 17 and 19 while the final will be take place on March 21. All the matches will start at 7:00 pm IST.

An array of stars including Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag, Brian Lara, Tillakaratne Dilshan, Muttiah Muralitharan, and many more legends of six cricket playing nations — England, South Africa, Sri Lanka, West Indies, Bangladesh and hosts India — will be back on the field to recreate the magic of old in the annual T20 cricket tournament, organised to create awareness towards road safety in the country.

The newly-built 65,000 capacity stadium in Raipur will be open for 50 per cent attendance as per the SOP issued by the Central Government. Last week, Australia legends pulled out of the tournament citing inability to travel due to strict COVID-19 restrictions Down Under.

As cricket is the most followed sport in the country and cricketers are looked upon as idols, this league aims to influence and change people’s mindset towards their behaviour on the roads.
