The 7th match of the Road Safety World Series 2020-21 will be played between England Legends and Bangladesh Legends on 7th March at Shaheed Veer Narayan Singh International Stadium in Raipur.
The match is scheduled to start at 7:00 PM local time and IST and it will be streamed live on Colors Cineplex, Rishtey Cineplex, Colours Kannada Cinema, and also on Voot.
England Legends will be up against the Bangladesh Legends in the 7th match of the Road Safety World Series 2020-21 on Sunday. England Legends weren’t part of the initial tournament. Under Kevin Pietersen’s captaincy, they will be participating for the first time in this tournament. Their bowling unit looks really dangerous with the likes of Sajid Mahmood, Ryan Sidebottom, Matthew Hoggard and Monty Panesar. Apart from skipper Kevin Pietersen and Owais Shah, the batting department looks a tad fragile with not enough big hitters.
On the other hand, Bangladesh Legends had a poor game against India Legends in their first outing. They were defeated by a margin of 10 wickets with still 59 balls left in the game. Mohammad Nazimuddin’s 49 runs upfront with the bat was the only positive takeaway from their 1st game. They will become easy fish for every opposition team if they perform like this, and hence need to put up a better show today.
EN-L vs BD-L Weather Report for Match 7:
The weather will be perfect to play cricket in the evening in Raipur with the temperature ranging between 31 and 23 degrees Celsius and the humidity will be 23 percent. There is no chance of rain for this match.
The surface is completely suited for the batsmen. They will get full value for their shots if they place the ball in the gap. There is some extra bounce in the surface for the quick bowlers. The outfield is really fast and the bowlers need to bowl to the field. Toss will play a crucial role and whoever wins should bowl first on this track.

Mohammad Nazimuddin just missed his half-century by a run in the first match against the mighty India Legends. He was the only savior with the bat for his side, scoring 49 runs from 33 balls, which includes 8 fours and a six.
Javed Omar was batting quite well in the first game against India Legends, but was unfortunate to get stumped when he was on 12 runs.
