The next match of the Road Safety World Series is to be played between South Africa Legends and Sri Lanka Legends at the Veer Shaheed Narayan Singh International Stadium in Raipur. The match will start at 7 p.m. IST.
South Africa Legends, led by Jonty Rhodes, has not played any matches until now this year. Jonty Rhodes himself and Makhaya Ntini are the most recognized players in this squad. Sri Lanka Legends, led by Tilakaratne Dilshan, has played one match against West Indies Legends. In this match, we went back in time looking at Dilshan’s iconic Dilscoop or when we saw Rangana Herath sprinting off his own bowling just to save a single run.
Sri Lanka Legends were given a target of 158 runs. Dilshan and Sananth Jayasurya gave them a good start. Upul Tharanga, too was good, when he came in to bat after Sanath Jayasurya’s wicket. Dilshan scored 47 in 35 balls, Tharanga scored 53 in 35 balls, and they chased down the target with one over to spare.
In this match, we can expect some more nostalgic moments. Jonty Rhodes, with his best in the world fielding, and Makhaya Ntini, with his speed. And that is exactly the motive of this series, to bring back memories to the fans of the game.
