England Legends will take on Australia Legends in the last league game of the Road Safety World Series T20 2022. Shaheed Veer Narayan Singh International Stadium in Raipur will host this exciting contest on Tuesday, September 27.
England Legends have already been knocked out of the competition. They lost three out of four games, while one was washed out due to rain. They faced India Legends in their last game and suffered a heavy loss.
In a rain-curtailed fixture of 15-overs-per-side, the England bowlers struggled as the India Legends posted 170 on the board. Stephen Parry picked up three wickets. The batters then faltered in the chase as they managed to score only 130 at the end of their 15 overs, losing the game by 40 runs. They will hope to finish the competition on a winning note.
Australia Legends, meanwhile, have kept their playoff qualification alive by beating West Indies Legends in their last game. They have won two games so far, lost one and one was washed out due to rain. It was a solid performance from them against the Caribbean side on Sunday.
Batting first, West Indies Legends set a target of 179. Bryce McGain picked up three wickets for Australia Legends. In response, openers Shane Watson (88) and Alex Doolan (56) helped Australia Legends chase down the total in the 16th over to win the game by eight wickets.
