In the match, Sachin Tendulkar and Yuvraj Singh blitzed half-centuries to power India Legends to a 56-run win.
South Africa Legends won the toss and opted to field. They got off to a good start as Virender Sehwag was dismissed for just 6 in the 2nd over.
However, Sachin Tendulkar then put on a 95-run stand with S Badrinath, before being dismissed for 60 off 37 deliveries.
S Badrinath retired not out having made 42 off 34, but Yuvraj Singh took over and smashed 52 off just 22 deliveries as India Legends finished with 204/3.
Yuvraj rolled back the years as he even hit four sixes in a single over.
South Africa Legends got off to a good start, but Yusuf Pathan broke the 87-run opening partnership. Yusuf took two more wickets, while Yuvraj Singh also took two wickets as South Africa Legends only managed 148/7 in their 20 overs.
