    World and Olympic 100m and 200m champion Yohan Blake of Jamaica will be in India to promote the Road Safety World Series, the T20 cricket event which will be played between legends of India, Australia, South Africa, West Indies and Sri Lanka in February next year.

     Blake, who is one of the favourites to win gold in 100m and 200m events at the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo, will arrive in India during the first week of December to undertake various activities to create awareness towards road safety in the country.

    Around 1,50,000 people are killed and more than 4,50,000 people are critically injured in road accidents every year.

    Blake was shocked when he heard that one person dies every four minutes in India and out of every hundred people dying in the world, 30 are Indians.

    Blake said, “Given India’s love for cricket, I am sure that the organizers will be able to achieve what they intend to through this series. Now that I am associated with this cause, I will do my best to spread the word, not only in India, but across the globe as road safety is a serious concern worldwide.”

    Every nation featuring in the Road Safety World Series will have a Road Safety Champion who will work intensely to promote the cause of road safety in and around the world. The Series will feature Bharat Ratna Sachin Tendulkar and West Indies legend Brian Lara among a host of other legendary cricketers like Brett Lee, Virender Sehwag, Muthiah Muralitharan etc.
