Tendulkar, Lara to play T20 competition in India

Batting greats Sachin Tendulkar and Brian Lara are among previous cricketers who will come back to the field for the Road Safety World Series in India one year from now.

The World Series will be a yearly Twenty20 competition played between resigned cricketers from five nations - Australia, South Africa, Sri Lanka, West Indies and India.

Indian Tendulkar and West Indian Lara will be joined by previous players including India's Virender Sehwag, Australian Brett Lee, Sri Lankan Tillakaratne Dilshan and South Africa's Jonty Rhodes for the competition from Feb. 2-16 crosswise over India.

Tendulkar, 46, is the world's driving scorer in tests and one-day internationals, storing up in excess of 34,000 runs and 100 centuries in a 24-year vocation that finished in 2013.

In 2008, Tendulkar outperformed Lara's record for most trials with the West Indies left-hander having made 11,953 in the longest configuration of the game before resigning from universal cricket in 2007.

Lara holds the record for the most elevated individual test score, his 400 not out against England in Antigua in 2004.
