We are going to see a new team in the Road Safety World Series as England Legends are about to play their first match. They will be playing against Bangladesh Legends, a team that has lost all of its matches so far. England has some very big names from its past playing including Kevin Pietersen who is surely going to be the biggest draw.
Can Bangladesh Legends find a way to finally win one match or will England Legends continue to add to their misery?
Let us try and find out.
England Legends vs Bangladesh Legends Road Safety World Series T20 2021 is going to be played at the Shaheed Veer Narayan Singh International Stadium, Raipur on the 7th of March 2021.
It is great to see so many Legends from different teams come together and in the case of England, some of these players are true Legends of the game! Kevin Pietersen was regarded as one of the best batsmen in the world till he played. He was playing T20 cricket till not too long back and so he is going to be one of the players to watch out for.
If anything, he may find it too easy and get bored!
Owais Shah, Phil Mustard, and Jonathan Trott are some of the other batsmen in this lineup. Owais Shah is a very clean hitter of the ball while Jonathan Trott is good enough to score plenty of runs as well.
Chris Tremlett, Ryan Sidebottom, Darren Maddy, and James Tredwell are some of the bowlers that can be expected to feature in the playing eleven. This is a very strong team that is going to be hard to beat.

Bangladesh was absolutely hammered by India in the previous match. After a decent start provided by Nazimuddin, the batting just crumbled and could only get to 109. That was never going to be enough especially once Virender Sehwag got going.
The bowlers had nowhere to hide although we do think Mohammad Sharif deserved a bit more luck going his way.
We don’t think things are going to get any easier against the English players. They will be facing some very good bowling and the batting is going to be as destructive as what Indis possessed.
Bangladesh just does not seem to have the firepower to compete.
Nazimuddin, Javed Omar, Nafees Iqbal, Rajin Saleh, Hannan Sarkar, Mohammad Rafique, Mohammad Sharif, Khaled Mashud, Mushfiqur Rahman, Abdur Razzak, Alamgir Kabir.
The team that wins the toss is going to want to bat first. Not fielding in the heat is perhaps as important as any other factor to the players in this tournament at this stage in this career!

The conditions in Raipur have been very good for batting and that is not going to change. The outfield is fast and the fielding is just not very good from players that are well past their prime. This is why plenty of boundaries are hit in every match.
We think a par score batting first for a team like England will be around 170 although Bangladesh can be expected to score a lot lesser if it bats first.
We think Bangladesh legends are going to be consigned to yet another defeat in this match. England Legends have a stronger batting lineup and a bowling lineup which we think will be quite effective. The fact that this is their first match of the tournament should not matter much.
Bet on England Legends to win.
Our Favorite Bets
Kevin Pietersen Total Runs - Over 25.5 ($1.83) (Betway)
At this point, the only real risk to this bet is whether Kevin Pietersen gets enough time in the middle or not because he may not open the batting. We suggest you bet ‘Over’ for all England batsmen that are in the top-order as you are going to find that almost every single bet pays off!
Jonathan Trott Total runs - Over 23.3 ($1.83) (Betway)
Trott never played too much T20 cricket but his credentials as a batsman cannot be questioned. He is the kind of player that will do well with the ball swinging in and the plethora of left-arm spinners that Bangladesh Legends have. This is close to free money in our opinion.
