IN-L vs SA-L T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, Road Safety World Series 2022
India Legends and South Africa Legends get the 2022 Road Safety World Series underway on Saturday evening in Kanpur. India Legends won the tournament in March 2021, beating Sri Lanka Legends by 14 runs in Raipur. Seven teams contested the competition last year with eight entrants this time. Read on as we preview this game. Match 1 of the tournament begins at the Green Park Stadium, Kanpur at 19:30 local time.
India Legends have put together another very strong squad featuring some players who have not had long away from playing at a high level. They will be confident of defending their title this year.
South Africa Legends were one of the strongest sides in 2021 although they were a slight level below Sri Lanka and India Legends. They could not have picked a tougher opening fixture for this campaign.
