New Zealand Legends will kick start their Road Safety World Series journey against the South Africa Legends on Monday, September 12 at Green Park, Kanpur. 

New Zealand Legends will be making their debut in the Road Safety World Series. They didn't participate in the inaugural edition of the tournament and will look to make a victorious start to their season campaign.

As for South Africa Legends, the team lost their opening fixture against India Legends by 61 runs. Captain Jony Rhodes must be expecting a better performance from both departments in this match.  

All in all, with some of the best T20 veterans of their time taking the field against each other, a cracking game beckons at Kanpur. 

Key Players 

  • Ross Taylor recently retired from international cricket, and he will be up to lead the New Zealand Legends from the front. He has got over 6000 runs in the shortest format. 
  • Jonty Rhodes, with an unbeaten 38 from 27 balls was the leading run-scorer against India Legends in the previous match. He will be one of the key men to keep an eye on from the South Africa camp. 
  • Morne van Wyk struck four boundaries and a towering six during his 24-ball 26 run knock against India Legends. He was the top-scorer for South Africa Legends in the first season and we can back him to come good with the bat in this match.
