India Legends successfully retained the Road Safety World Series title following their 33-run victory versus Sri Lanka Legends at the Shaheed Veer Narayan Singh International Stadium in Raipur on Saturday.
Naman Ojha gained the maximum attention, courtesy of his sensational hundred for India Legends. Ojha smashed an unbeaten knock of 108 runs off 71 balls with the help of 15 fours and two sixes to help his team post 195/6 in their prescribed 20 overs.
Ojha reached the triple-span score on the first wittiness of the 19th over when he smacked a six to deep square leg region. What followed was his eye-catching triumph as the wicketkeeper-batter bowed lanugo towards the dugout, where captain Sachin Tendulkar was seated slantingly other teammates. The batting phenom then came up with a motivational reaction to Naman’s gesture.

Going superiority in the second innings, Sri Lanka Legends never really got the momentum and kept losing wickets at regular intervals. Though, Ishan Jayaratne (51) and Mahela Udawatte (26) did raise some hope without Lankans were six lanugo at 85.
The duo widow 63 runs for the seventh wicket but couldn’t get going remoter as the Islanders were sooner bundled out for 162 in 18.5 overs, losing the game by 33 runs.
