Road Safety World Series

The 2022 edition of the Road Safety World Series has ended with India Legends as the champions for the second consecutive time. They defeated the Sri Lanka Legends in the title clash of the tournament by 33 runs to lift the trophy once again. Notably, India and Sri Lanka were also the finalists in the first edition of the tournament.

One of the lethal openers of his time, Sanath Jayasuriya is famously known for his amazing and sensational batting skills. He alongside Hasan Tillakaratne completely changed the dimensions of batting in the powerplay overs when they displayed some exceptional batting performances in the ODI World Cup 1996.

The former veteran all-rounder ended up on the list of top wicket-takers of the tournament. He picked up seven wickets in four matches having a remarkable spell of four wickets by conceding just three runs against England Legends.

Bryce McGain


The Victoria-born leggie could play only one Test for the Australian team in international cricket. In that match, he failed to scalp any wicket. Bryce McGain played the only Test of his career 13 years back in 2009.

Although, he was in very good form with the ball in the recently-concluded Road Safety World Series. McGain scalped six wickets in four matches before the final match against India. It was looking like Indian conditions were quite a bit suitable for him.

Tillakaratne Dilshan
