Legends T20 League 2023

Match 3: AL vs WG



The 3rd Match of the Legends T20 League will be played between AL and WG on Monday, 13th March 2023, at 08:00 PM IST in West End Park International Cricket Stadium, Doha.

The team led by Shahid Afridi won the opening encounter against IM. Their bowlers and batters performed strongly against the IM as they cruised to a 9-run victory. Afridi will try to capitalize on this trend. The AL captain wants to see a strong performance from his team since his opponents also have a win when they arrive at this match.

Tillakaratne Dilshan and Upul Tharanga would want to start well together after their strong performance in the last game. After playing the game-winning knock in the previous encounter, Misbah-ul-Haq needs to form partnerships in the middle order with Afridi and Misbah-ul-Haq. After each inning, Thisara Perera and Abdul Razzaq will try to smash several home runs.

In solid form, Sohail Tanvir will want to take early wickets while splitting the new ball with Isuru Udana. Afrid and Thisara Perera are skilled bowlers who seek to exploit the circumstances. Dilshan and Abdul Razzaq increase the team's bowling options in this match.

The team of Aaron Finch snatched victory from the jaws of defeat. The team defeated IM in a thrilling match by a score of 2 runs. However, the middle and lower middle order struggled in the last game, and the WG captain wants them to do better in this match.

Finch took the initiative in the last game and would want to team up with Chris Gayle for a significant first-wicket partnership. Shane Watson contributed significantly, but the team still needs runs from Jacques Kallis and Ross Taylor in the middle order. Morne van Wyk and Kevin O'Brien must make contributions in the lower middle order for the team to succeed.

Tino Best will begin the bowling for Brett Lee after his outstanding performance in the last game. These lanes will be fun for Monty Panesar to bowl on, and he has to beat Ricardo Powell. The team has more bowling options with Gayle, Chris Mpofu, and Kevin O'Brien.


Match Details

Match: AL vs WG, 3rd Match, Legends T20 League 2023

Date: Monday, March 13, 2023

Time: 8:00 PM

Venue: West End Park International Cricket Stadium, Doha


Pitch and Weather Report

The team batting first won both games. Both captains will think about how the wicket slows as the game progresses. The team that wins the toss should be quick to bat first.

This pitch is the batting paradise. Batters easily score runs since the wicket is flat and the outfield is quick. The fast bowlers who have struggled on this surface have nothing to use here. On the other hand, the spinners have had an excellent hunting ground there.

On March 13, the sky will be apparent over Doha, and it will be a warm and muggy day with the temperature and wind speed of 26℃ and 10 km/h, respectively. We anticipate a run feast here throughout the game as it would be flat. To win, the team that bats first has to score 180 runs or more.

As per the team combination, adaptability, and strength, AL will be the favorite to win this game
