The excitement is more than ever before as two of the finest batsmen ever to play the game- India’s Sachin Tendulkar and West Indian Brian Lara- will once again compete on the cricket field but this time for a much bigger cause than just winning or losing a game of cricket.
The two legendary players are featuring in the Road Safety World Series tournament, a T20 cricket competition in which former cricketers are participating to promote the cause of Road Safety.
A total of 11 matches will be played in the tournament with the final scheduled to be played on 22 March at the Brabourne Stadium.
The opening match of the tournament will see India Legends fight it out against West Indies legends at the Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai on Saturday.
