In a bid to spread awareness with regards to road safety, legends of the gentlemen’s game have come together in the Road Safety World Series 2020. The first two games saw India Legends and Sri Lanka Legends triumph over West Indies Legends and Australia Legends, respectively.
The third match is taking place between Sachin Tendulkar-led India Legends and Tillakaratne Dilshan-led Sri Lanka Legends at DY Patil Sports Academy in Mumbai. However, for the legends, even fielding for full 20 overs is not easy in the post-retirement life, and former India opener Virender Sehwag’s recent words made it evident.
The 41-year-old Sehwag jokingly said that his captain’s decision to bowl first after winning the toss is leaving a toll on their bodies since they have to run around the ground for full 20 overs.
“We are getting sore while fielding and Sachin elected to bowl first and makes us field 20 overs, tires us before batting,” Sehwag told TV Presenter Karishma Kotak.
