In the latest developments, it has been reported that former Indian batsman who still has the highest runs in the world, Sachin Tendulkar will not be a part of the upcoming 2022 season of the Road Safety World Series tournament. The reason behind his move is the unpaid dues from the tournament’s organizers.

Sachin Tendulkar led the Indian Legends team, which won the first season last year. The tournament was quite hyped for the inclusion of stars like Sachin Tendulkar, Yuvraj Singh, Virender Sehwag, Brian Lara, Tilakratne Dilshan, Brett Lee, etc. A large number of spectators were turning up to see their stars on the field once again.

A Bangladesh media has reported that several of their former top players, who were part of the tournament, haven’t been paid any fees yet. The list of players included Khaled Mahmud, Khaled Mashud, Mehrab Hossain, Rajin Saleh, Hannan Sarkar, and Nafees Iqbal.

According to the reports, Sachin Tendulkar has decided to not be associated with the tournament anymore. 

The tournament is organized by the person named Ravi Gaikwad, who is the chief of RTO in Thane, Maharashtra. He is also the chief of the Road Safety Cell in Maharashtra state.

The 1st season of the Road Safety World Series took place in 2020 in which the organizers committed to pay 10 per cent to the players as signing amount, next 40 per cent to be paid by 25 February, 2021 and the remaining 50 per cent by 31 March, 2021.
