The England Legends were eliminated from the Road Safety World Series 2021 semi-finals in a dramatic turn of results. Following victories over Bangladesh Legends and India Legends in their first two games, the Kevin Pietersen-led side was eliminated from the competition after losing to the other three teams.
With 20 points from six matches, Sachin Tendulkar’s India Legends won the Road Safety World Series 2021. India Legends net run rate was just 0.002 higher than Sri Lanka Legends, who finished second with 20 points. On another side, the West Indies Legends qualified for the semi-finals by beating the England Legends in the final group stage match.
The weather has been excellent for the last ten days, and the matches have gone on without any interruption. The day will be hot and sunny in Raipur, but the evening will be cooler, with temperatures ranging from 27~30 degrees Celsius and no chance of precipitation for this match.
A reasonably high-scoring Road Safety World Series game is anticipated. Teams have been scoring freely here recently, aided by the smaller dimensions of the field. On the other hand, the bowlers can step around and switch off the surface to keep them involved. With 160-170 being a competitive score at the venue, having wickets in hand will be crucial. Even though chasing would be the best choice if you won the toss, the pitch shouldn’t change much in the game.
