The Road Safety World Series 2021 got off to a breathtaking start on Friday with India Legends registering a crushing 10-wicket win over Bangladesh Legends in Match 5 at Raipur.


India Legends rode on Virender Sehwag and Sachin Tendulkar's unbroken opening partnership to chase down the paltry target of 110 with 59 balls to spare.


Sehwag smashed 80 off 35 balls with 10 boundaries and 5 sixes while Tendulkar scored a sedate 33 off 26 balls with five boundaries as India crossed the finish line in 10.1 overs to grab the top spot in the table.

Bangladesh Legends' decision to bat first after winning the toss didn't work out as they got bowled out for 109 in 19.4 overs.


Pragyan Ojha, Yuvraj Singh and Vinay Kumar grabbed a couple of wickets each while Manpreet Gony and Yusuf Pathan also got their names in the wickets column with 1 each.


Opener Nazimuddin top-scored for the visitors with 49 off 33 balls while Javed Omar and Rain Saleh were the only other batsmen to reach double figures, both scoring 12 runs each, while the rest couldn't even score more than 7 runs.


India Legends sit on top of the table with their second successive victory in as many games followed by Sri Lanka Legends and South Africa Legends with 2 points each.


Notably, last year the first edition of the series was canceled after four games on March 11 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The venue for all the matches of the Road Safety World Series in 2021 will be The Shaheed Veer Narayan Singh International Cricket Stadium in Raipur.
