Indian bating maestro Sachin Tendulkar is set to return on the cricket field as he will be leading the India legends side in the inaugural edition of the Road Safety World Series, which is set to resume on Friday (March 5) after being suspended due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Notably, Sachin’s side India legends will take on Bangladesh Legends on March 5 and it mark the resumption of the Road Safety World Series after a long gap of one year.
