Today the India Legends will face the Sri Lanka Legends in the final match of the Road Safety World Series 2020-21. India Legends advanced to the finals by defeating West Indies Legends by 12 runs in the first semi-final. Only one of the men in blue’s six matches in this tournament has resulted in a loss. The batting order of the India Legends is full of superstars until number seven, and each of them has the ability to turn the game in a matter of overs. Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag, their openers, are among the tournament’s top-five run-scorers.
Meanwhile, the Sri Lanka Legends have dominated all of their games this season. However, they had previously lost their only match against India Legends the previous year. Based on the net run-rate, they finished second in the group. They qualified for the finals by defeating South Africa Legends by 8 wickets in the second semi-final; their wins were all convincing, and they deserved to be in this tournament’s finals. Tillakaratne Dilshan and Upul Tharanga are in fantastic form with the bat, and they will look to continue their dream run in the finals against India Legends.
In Raipur, the skies will be apparent in the evening, with temperatures ranging from 26-29 degrees Celsius and moderate humidity levels of 50%. There is no chance of precipitation expected for this match.
Raipur will host a high-scoring Road Safety World Series final. The batsmen are expected to do well at the venue, but the bowlers should get some swing early in the game. The spinners have dominated the middle overs, but there isn’t much turn available for the tweakers. Because dew can play a role as the match progresses, both teams would prefer to chase. Even though 170-180 should be a competitive total, both teams have the firepower to go over 200 runs.
