The 2022 Road Safety World Series went underway on September 10 with a high-octane clash between India Legends and South Africa Legends. A pantheon of legendary cricketers from both sides took centerstage at Kanpur, including the likes of Sachin Tendulkar, Yuvraj Singh and Jonty Rhodes.

Herschelle Gibbs is a notable absentee from the tournament and the former Proteas opener recently blamed BCCI President Sourav Ganguly for his absence.

Gibbs says Sourav Ganguly did not allow him to play in the Road Safety Series

Replying to a fan on Twitter, Gibbs said that BCCI President Sourav Ganguly barred him from playing Road Safety Series because he participated in the rebel Kashmir Premier League.

The former South African opener participated in the Pakistan-based league last year. The tournament has received several objections from BCCI as well as from the Indian government.
