Batting greats Sachin Tendulkar and Brian Lara will return to the field when the two take on each other in the opening game of the Road Safety World Series between India Legends and West Indies Legends at the Wankhede Stadium on Saturday.
The World Series is an annual Twenty20 tournament played between retired cricketers from five countries – Australia, South Africa, Sri Lanka, West Indies, and India.
Tendulkar, 46, is the world’s leading scorer in Tests and ODIs, amassing more than 34,000 runs and 100 centuries in a 24-year career that ended in 2013.
In 2008, Tendulkar surpassed Lara’s record for most test runs with the West Indies left-hander having made 11,953 in the longest format of the game before retiring from international cricket in 2007.
Lara holds the record for the highest individual test score, his 400 not out against England in Antigua in 2004.
India legends that will be lead by Sachin will also feature the likes of batting greats like Virender Sehwag and Yuvraj Singh. Zaheer Khan and Irfan Pathan are also part of the bowling unit.
In the 11 matches to be played in this tournament, India legend Tendulkar and West Indian Lara will be joined by former players including India’s Virender Sehwag, Australian Brett Lee, Sri Lankan Tillakaratne Dilshan and South Africa’s Jonty Rhodes for the tournament from March 7-22 across India.
