Sachin Tendulkar led India Legends to title victory in Road Safety World Series

The batting maestro took the field after a long time and led the India Legends team to a title victory in the Road Safety World Series played at the Shaheed Veer Narayan Singh International Stadium in Raipur.

The hosts defeated Sri Lanka Legends, who were captained by Tillakaratne Dilshan, in the final. The final was a thriller and was decided in the last over of the game bowled by Munaf Patel. India posted 181 and the Lankans fell 14 runs short of India’s score.

Yusuf Pathan was named the Man of the Match for his blistering 36-ball 62 supported by 41-ball 60 from Yuvraj Singh. Tillakaratne Dilshan was named the Man of the Series for his superb all-round performances throughout the tournament – indeed he ended up as the leading run-scorer and the leading wicket-taker in the tournament!
