Match: India Legends vs England Legends, (IND-L vs ENG-L, 14th Match)

Date: September 22, 2022 – 7:30 PM IST

Venue: Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium, Dehradun

England Legends and India Legends are set to collide in match no. 14 of the Road Safety World Series 2022. The two teams will meet at Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium in Dehradun on Thursday, September 22nd.

India Legends have been quite unfortunate this season with two of their three games getting washed out due to rain. They hammered South Africa by 61 runs in the season opener. In the previous fixture, India made 49/1 in 5.5 overs, with Sachin Tendulkar delighting the crowd with several boundaries before the rain interrupted.

Stuart Binny was the star versus South Africa Legends, smashing 82* off 42 while Yusuf Pathan blasted 35* off 15 to power the total to 217/4. Rahul Sharma starred with the ball, snaring 3 for 17 as they restricted South Africa to 156/9.

England Legends are yet to open their account in the tournament, having lost two matches with one game getting washed out. They were hammered by eight wickets in their previous fixture at the hands of West Indies.

Ian Bell anchored the innings with his 46 off 43 whereas Rikki Clarke smashed 50 not out in just 25 balls to take the score to 156/5 in 20 overs. They were then belted around the park for 120 runs in 11.2 overs by the West Indies openers. Clarke bagged 2 for 16 in three overs but the rest of the attack was taken to the cleaners.

Pitch Report and Weather Forecast for IND-L vs ENG-L, 14th Match

Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium in Dehradun has only hosted six T20 matches, with the average first innings score reading 178. Expect good batting surfaces here in this tournament as well. The highest total at the venue was registered by Afghanistan when they amassed 278/3 versus Ireland in 2019. 

Dehradun could witness thunderstorms on Wednesday morning and afternoon. There’s around 25% chance of precipitation in the evening but wet outfield could be an issue.
