Road Safety World Series 2022: Prediction
India Legends are the defending champions of the Road Safety World series and there is a high chance that they are going to win the tournament this season as well. They have one of the most star-studded squads with the likes of Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag, Suresh Raina and Yuvraj Singh present in it and there is very less chance that any other team is going to top that.
