The Indian cricket public will be privileged to watch some of the greatest cricketing icons Sachin Tendulkar, Brian Lara, Virender Sehwag, Dlishan, Jonty Rhodes, Brett Lee and a few other legends to play in a T20 event between Feb 2 to Feb16 2020 in Mumbai marked for Road safety awareness. It will be a wonderful moment for the fans to go down memory lane and revive the cricketing skills of these legends ,all of whom played international cricket till last decade and some till this decade too . Many of these legends were almost past their prime when T20 cricket exploded in a big way in the world from the end of last decade. Though players like Sachin, Sehwag, Dilshan , Lee played actively in the first few years of IPL, their subsequent exits from the game still makes the cricket fans miss their skills and greatness.
From initial indications, this Road safety awareness T20 event, based on franchisee model will be held on annual basis and former cricketers of India, Australia, South Africa, Srilanka and West Indies will be seen in action . Hence it’s a delightful news for cricket fans specially for the youngest generations who missed out on the skills of these past legends.
Thus ,as all the details start unfurling, we may hope more legendary names like Kallis, Glichrist, Hayden, Hussey, Sangakkara, Ponting, Greame Smith etc to get involved in this annual event.
