India Legends vs Australia Legends Live: India Legends beat Australia Legends by 5 wickets, through to final
Pathan wins it with a four! That's the end of what turned out to be a very good match indeed. It really was anyone's game until Irfan Pathan unleashed himself against Dirk Nannes. Naman Ojha ends with an unbeaten 90 off 62 balls, an extraordinary innings with some help along the way from Yuvraj Singh and Irfan Pathan. Pathan, meanwhile, is unbeaten on 37 off 12.

Road Safety World Series live score: PATHAN CARNAGE!
This match almost got over in the 19th over itself! A wide ball after the two sixes and then another maximum from Pathan, straight down the ground again. It is a wonder as to why Watson didn't give Brett Lee this over, the big fast bowler is just standing with a frown on his face. 21 runs off the 19th over.

India Legends vs Australia Legends Live: BACK TO BACK SIXES!
Irfan Pathan doing what we would expect his brother to do! The first ball dissappears over deep mid-wicket and second over long on.
Sep 29, 2022 05:05 PM IST
IND L vs AUS Live score: SIX! Gigantic from Irfan Pathan!
Oh pick the bones out of that please! Full from Nannes, Irfan smashes it over long on and Suresh Raina has taken quite a brilliant catch beyond the boundary as well!
Sep 29, 2022 04:58 PM IST
Road Safety World Series live score: OUT! Yusuf Pathan goes now!
Safe to say that India Legends are in a bit of a spot of bother now. Watson gets his second wicket now and Australia Legends are back in it.
Yusuf Pathan c Haddin b Watson 1 (2), India Legends 125/5 in 15.4 overs, need 47 to win off 27 balls
Sep 29, 2022 04:58 PM IST
India Legends vs Australia Legends Live: OUT!
Binny tries to go big but ends up hitting it straight to Cameron While at long on, who takes the catch like it is nothing.
Binny c White b McGain 2 (6), India Legends 122/4 in 15 overs, need 50 to win off 30
Sep 29, 2022 04:47 PM IST
IND L vs AUS Live score: GONE! Watson gets Yuvraj!
Watson gets his man! Yuvraj deceived by the lack of pace and loses his stumps. Not much of a celebration there from Watson, he would know that this partnership has perhaps done too much damage with the in-form Stuart Binny to come. Yusuf and Irfan Pathan are up after him and so it will take a proper collapse for India to lose it from here.
Yuvraj Singh b Watson 18 (15), India Legends 115/3 in 13.2 overs, need 57 to win off 40
Sep 29, 2022 04:44 PM IST

Sep 29, 2022 04:43 PM IST

Watson standing there with a wry smile on his face. The ball ricochets off Yuvraj's bat to the third man boundary.
Sep 29, 2022 04:37 PM IST

Sep 29, 2022 04:36 PM IST
India Legends vs Australia Legends Live: SIX! 50 for Ojha
A couple of steps down the track to get to the pitch of the delivery, then a whack through the line to send the ball back over the bowler's head. Ojha has got to 54 in just 36 balls.
Sep 29, 2022 04:32 PM IST

India Legends vs Australia Legends Live: 50 up for India Legends
Ojha and Raina now in the middle. Things are still looking pretty good for the Indians even though Tendulkar has fallen without scoring much.
Sep 29, 2022 04:14 PM IST
IND L vs AUS Live score: BOWLED HIM! Tendulkar is gone
Reardon was little more than a part-time seamer in his playing days and so it is understandable that he can't really believe what he has just done. He goes to his team mates with a smile on his face, he has just knocked over Sachin Tendulkar after all. Tendulkar trying a sweep, plays all around it and it hits the stumps.
Tendulkar b Reardon 10 (11), India Legends 38/1 in 5.2 overs
Sep 29, 2022 04:11 PM IST
Road Safety World Series live score: FOUR! Sachin gets another
Tendulkar waits for the slow bouncer from Lee, rocks back and sends it sailing over deep backward point for a one bounce four. That is a much needed boundary for the India great, he hasn't really been able to get any rhythm going thus far.
Sep 29, 2022 04:09 PM IST
India Legends vs Australia Legends Live: India Legends 31/0 after 4 overs
A good start for India. Tendulkar clearly happy to give all the strike to Ojha, who is looking very good at the moment indeed. Brett Lee comes back for his third
Sep 29, 2022 04:06 PM IST
Road Safety World Series live score: SIX!
Ojha has taken a real liking to Nannes, not so much to Brett Lee. He just flicks the third ball of the over to deep midwicket for his first six of the innings. Then creams almost the perfect cover drive for a four off the very next ball.
Sep 29, 2022 04:04 PM IST
India Legends vs Australia Legends Live: India Legends 15/0 after 3 overs
Ojha is on 11 off 14 while Tendulkar has scored four in four. Ojha taking much of the strike in these early overs.
Sep 29, 2022 03:59 PM IST
IND L vs AUS Live score: BACK TO BACK FOURS!
Naman Ojha continues to show good form. Dirk Nannes bowls the second over and his second ball is dispatched to fine leg for a boundary. Ojha then hits the next ball to deep midwicket for his next.
Sep 29, 2022 03:55 PM IST
Road Safety World Series live score: FOUR! Tendulkar is away!
Back of a length outside off from Lee, Tendulkar brings out the backfoot punch, through the covers and smashing into the boundary ropes. That is a good looking shot if there ever was one, India 5/0 after the 1st over
Sep 29, 2022 03:54 PM IST
India Legends vs Australia Legends Live: The players are back!
Naman Ojha taking guard, Sachin Tendulkar at the other end, Brett Lee is bowling the first over. Here we go!
Sep 29, 2022 03:44 PM IST
IND L vs AUS Live score: Australia Legends 171/5 in 20 overs
14 runs in the last over, most of it scored by White. A wonderful partnership between him and Haddin in the end, 40 runs off 18 balls. India now need 172 to win this match. They have scored over 200 in their first match and their batters have shown some good form. This will be an interesting chase.
Sep 29, 2022 03:41 PM IST
Road Safety World Series live score: SIX AND FOUR! Cameron White pushing AUS L on
What a hand White is playing here. Pawar's fourth and fifth deliveries are dispatched to the boundary and this is turning out to be an expensive final over for India Legends.
Sep 29, 2022 03:36 PM IST
IND L vs AUS Live score: SIX! AUS L go past 150
Wide full toss from Abhimanyu Mithun and White gobbles it up. Smacked it way over the bowler's head and into the stands. He never wasted chances like those back in his playing days, did Cameron White.
Sep 29, 2022 03:32 PM IST
Road Safety World Series live score: SIX! Haddin going through the line
No turn today for Rajesh Pawar it seems and Haddin just swings through the line to send the ball over the bowler's head. Very scant crowd so far, as you would expect. Maybe it would build up as the day goes on.
Sep 29, 2022 03:30 PM IST
India Legends vs Australia Legends Live: The players are out!
Rajesh Pawar starts out and he is bowing to Cameron White. Remember, this is not the start of the match, this is the last three overs and so White and Haddin have to smash bang straightaway.
Sep 29, 2022 03:25 PM IST

India Legends vs Australia Legends Live: Hello and welcome back!
Wherever the Road Safety World Series has gone, rain has followed this year. India Legends had multiple matches washed out and there was even an outside chance that they could be knocked out because of this at one point. Now that this particular match was postponed, there won't be any reduction of overs, unless rain spoils the party today as well. Let's hope not.
