The 2020 edition of Road Safety World Series cricket was cancelled in March last year, owing to the rising threat of coronavirus in the state of Maharashtra. The Wankhede stadium and Navi Mumbai stadium was hosting all the matches and the star studded Indian Legends team was at the top of the table until the deadly coronavirus halted the proceedings. Now Road Safety World Series 2021 is back which will again feature retired cricketers from six different nation. The tournament will feature legends like Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag, Yuvraj Singh, Zaheer Khan, Brian Lara, Jonty Rhodes, Muttiah Muralitharan and many more.
Last year, five teams participated in the event but this time it will be a six team affair with England team joining the tournament. Team from Australia will not participate in the tournament and Bangladesh legends team will replace them.
All the matches will be played at Shaheed Veer Narayan Singh International stadium in Raipur, the capital of Chhatisgarh.
