The 14th match of the Road Safety World Series 2022 was played between India Legends vs England Legends at the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium in Dehradun on Thursday night. In this rain-interrupted match, India Legends once again secured the first position in the points table after winning the match by 40 runs. Yuvraj Singh and Yusuf Pathan, including Sachin Tendulkar, were the heroes of India's victory, who played short but stormy innings to take the team to a big score. Sachin Tendulkar was also awarded the Man of the Match award for his brilliant debut.
Due to rain, the match was played for 15 overs and England Legends won the toss and elected to bowl first. Giving a stormy start to India, Sachin Tendulkar added 40 runs in 20 balls with the help of 3 fours and as many sixes. After this, Yuvraj Singh scored an unbeaten 31 off 15 balls with the help of 3 sixes and 1 four and Yusuf Pathan scored 27 runs in 11 balls with the help of 3 sixes and 1 four. The strike rate of all three batsmen during this period was more than 200. India put 170 runs on the board for the loss of 5 wickets in the allotted 15 overs.
Chasing this mountain-like target, the England team could score only 130 runs in 15 overs for the loss of 6 wickets. During this, Phil Mustard played the highest innings of 29 runs, while Rajesh Pawar took the highest three wickets for India by spending 12 runs in three overs.
With this win, India has reached the first position in the points table. In the Road Safety World Series, India, West Indies, and Sri Lanka are the three teams that are yet to face defeat.
