Sachin, Sehwag & Yuvi go big for India Legends
It was a nostalgia arousing display from the three superstars of Indian cricket.
Sachin Tendulkar had a slow start in the Road Safety World Series T20 2020-21 but it did not take long for the Little Master to come to his best. Sachin scored 36 in the first match of the competition and was dismissed for nought in the next game. Following scores of 33 not out and 9 in the next two matches against Bangladesh legends and England legends respectively, he was back in full flow against South Africa legends.
Tendulkar blasted 60 off just 37 deliveries, smashing 9 fours and one six at a strike rate of 162.16 when it mattered. Sachin smashed another 65 against West Indies legends in the semifinal of the Road Safety World Series T20 2020-21 off just 42 balls, hitting 6 fours and 3 sixes at a strike rate of 154.76 and was named the Man of the Match. He guided India to the final, where the team lifted the title.
Virender Sehwag did a fine job in the competition, with his best knock of 80 not out coming against Bangladesh legends. Chasing Bangladesh’s target of 110, the opening combination of Virender Sehwag and Sachin Tendulkar was relentless and added 114 runs for the opening partnership.
The lion’s share of the scoring was done by Virender Sehwag who remained unbeaten on 80 off just 35 balls, blasting 10 fours and 5 sixes while batting at a strike rate of 228.57 as India chased down the target with almost 10 overs to spare and won the match by 10 wickets to give a boost to their net run rate. As expected, Sehwag was awarded the Player of the Match.
Sehwag finished the tournament as the second highest run scorer for India behind Tendulkar with 214 runs from 7 matches at an average of 42.80 and a strike rate of 153.95.
Yuvraj Singh was also in daunting form in the Road Safety World Series T20 2020-21 and scored when it mattered the most. Yuvraj finished the competition behind Sehwag with 194 runs from six innings at an average of 64.66 and a strike rate of 170.17.
India were in a spot of bother, having lost each of their top three, when Yuvraj took centre stage. He blasted 60 runs off just 41 balls with the help of 4 fours and 4 sixes, batting at a strike rate of 146.34 to take India to 181, which ultimately helped the team to win the competition.
