Match six of the Road Safety World Series 2021 will see Sri Lanka Legends take on the West Indies Legends. Both teams were part of the Road Safety World Series last year before it halted prematurely and resumed from where they left off in 2020.
Sri Lanka Legends are currently third in the Road Safety World Series standings. They have four points from two games and will look to add to their tally on Saturday.
Sri Lanka Legends captain Tillakaratne Dilshan will be confident about his team’s chances this year. Swashbuckling opener Sanath Jayasuriya is part of the side, with the spin department boasting Ajantha Mendis and Rangana Herath.
On the other hand, West Indies Legends captain Brian Lara will look to guide his team to their first win of the Road Safety World Series. West Indies Legends are yet to win a game in the T20 competition, losing two in two. The likes of Tino Best, Dwayne Smith, and Carl Hooper are also part of West Indies Legends.
Date: March 6, 2021 (Saturday)
Time: 7:00 PM IST
Venue: Shaheed Veer Narayan Singh International Stadium, Raipur
Clear skies with an average temperature of 28 degrees Celsius will welcome viewers at the start of the game. Temperatures will later drop into the low 20s as the game progresses, with dew set to play a role as well.
Bangladesh Legends managed just 109 yesterday, but that was largely down to India Legends’ efficient bowling effort. In response, Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag showed the pitch is batting-friendly, scoring 114 in just 10.1 overs. The captain winning the toss is likely to bowl first.
