The Road Safety World Series 2022 kicked off on September 10 with hosts India Legends defeating South Africa Legends by a big margin of 61 runs. Led by batting great Sachin Tendulkar, the India Legend won the inaugural season of this competition last year.

The 8-team tournament is being played across four cities of India - Kanpur, Indore, Dehradun and Raipur.

While most of the players in this Legends league are in their late 30s, nearing 40s, and a number of cricket stars are well beyond the age of 40- there are a few players who are in their early 30s and are younger than many top international stars, including Virat Kohli.

Kohli, the former India skipper, is going strong in international cricket at the age of 33 and will be 34 in November.

Here are 3 cricketers who are younger than Virat Kohli but have already retired from international cricket and are playing in the Road Safety World Series 2022:

Abul Hasan

Former Bangladesh bowling all-rounder Abul Hasan created a world record when he became the first No.10 to score a century on Test debut in 110 years of Test history; he achieved the feat against West Indies in Khulna in November 2012. He was only 20 years old then.
