The legends are back again for the 2nd Road safety World series and Virender Sehwag did not allow anyone to take the centre stage on the opening day .  Chasing a modest total of 109 made by Bangladesh legends , Sehwag came out all guns blazing and simply toyed with the Bangladesh bowling , scoring runs in his tyically belligerent fashion turning the clock back to his golden days . With effortless timing mixed with power , his vintage offside shots came out in full flow and he was brutal against the spinners stepping out and smashing them  . Sehwag raced away to 80 notout off 35 balls and such was the force of his knock that Tendulkar’s sublime 33 of 26 balls went unnoticed as Indian legends romped him in style to win by 10 wickets in just 10 overs .  The Raipur crowd was absolutely overjoyed to watch the two batting legends in tandem as we had seen during their golden playing days for so many years .

Earlier Bangladesh legends managed only 109 in 20 overs with Nazimuddin scoring 49 off 33 balls helping the team to reach 50/0 during powerplay but it soon fell apart as the rest of the batting simply could not negotiate the bowling of Vinay Kumar , Yuvraj Singh & Pragyan Ojha as Bangladesh team fell well short of a proper total to challenge India.
