England Legends will take on South Africa Legends in the seventh match of the Road Safety T20 World Series 2022 to be played at Green Park in Kanpur on Thursday.
England Legends lost to Sri Lanka Legends in their opening game of the competition. The English side displayed poor performances with both the bat and the ball and were beaten comprehensively.
After being asked to bat first, the English batters were bundled out on 78, with Ian Bell top-scoring with 15. The bowlers did pick up three wickets but there wasn’t much to defend as they lost the game in the 15th over. They will hope for a much-improved performance on Thursday.
The South Africa Legends, on the other hand, have played two games so far. They lost to India Legends in their opening game but bounced back to beat New Zealand Legends in their next game. It was a solid performance from them to grab two points.
Johan Botha and Thandi Tshabalala wreaked havoc as they picked up four and three wickets, respectively, to restrict the Kiwis to 99. Andrew Puttick scored an unbeaten fifty (51* off 36 balls) to guide them across the line in the 14th over.
