Tendulkar and Lara return to cricket pitch
Batting greats Sachin Tendulkar and Brian Lara are among former cricketers who will return to the field for the Road Safety World Series in India next year. The World Series will be an annual Twenty20 tournament played between retired cricketers from Australia, South Africa, Sri Lanka, West Indies and India. Indian Tendulkar and West Indian Lara will be joined by former players including India’s Virender Sehwag, Australian Brett Lee, Sri Lankan Tillakaratne Dilshan and South Africa’s Jonty Rhodes for the tournament in February. Tendulkar, 46, is the world’s leading scorer in Tests and one-day internationals. Lara holds the record for the highest individual Test score, his 400 not out against England in Antigua in 2004.
