Tharanga joins Sri Lanka Legends
Retired opener Upul Tharanga is the latest addition to the Sri Lanka Legends team participating at the Road Safety World Series T20 tournament to be held in India next month. Earlier, former Sri Lanka skipper Sanath Jayasuriya, Russel Arnold, Nuwan Kulasekara and Dammika Prasad joined the team led by Thilakarathne Dilshan.
The Road Safety World Series is an annual T20 cricket tournament organised to create awareness among the Indian public towards road safety. The tournament commenced last year with the participation of legendary cricketers from five cricketing nations, namely India, Sri Lanka, Australia, West Indies and South Africa, but was called off midway on 11 March due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
However, the Australian team will not be part of the tournament this year due to travel restrictions, but England and Bangladesh will join the tournament as two new entrants.
The tournament will be held at the newly built Shaheed Veer Narayan Singh International Cricket Stadium in Raipur, India. The Sri Lanka Legends team is set to leave the Island on 27 February.
