England Legends had to fly back home last year without playing a single match as the Road Safety World Series tournament was halted midway owing to the covid-19 pandemic. This year, the Englishmen will be led by the former right-handed batsman, Kevin Pietersen who was part of England’s ICC T20 World Cup winning campaign in 2010.
With only four matches played last year, the remainder of the matches will be played starting from March 5. England Legends will open their campaign against Bangladesh Legends on March 7, in first of their five encounters.

England Legends Squad
England Legends: Kevin Pietersen, Owais Shah, Philip Mustard, Monty Panesar, Nick Compton, Kabir Ali, Usman Afzaal, Matthew Hoggard, James Tindall, Chris Tremlett, Sajid Mahmood, James Tredwell, Chris Schoefield, Johnathan Trott, Ryan Sidebottom.
Key Players for England Legends
Kevin Pietersen is one of the most important members in the England squad. The Englishman was a special player back in the days, with equally good performances in all three formats of the game. He can roll over his arm and can get a wicket or two.
Monty Panesar is another key member of the England squad. He is remembered for his performance on the Indian tour in 2012 when the visitors defeated India 2-1 in the Test series. India has always been a good hunting ground for Panesar.
Owais Shah, the former right-handed batsman has the ability to score quick runs and strike a few hefty blows towards the end of the innings. England will look towards Owais Shah for providing them with a late flurry of runs or chase down a steep target.
