Legends T20 League 2023

Match 2: WG vs IM

Preview 

World Giants and Indian Maharajas will lock horns in match number 2 of the Legends T20 League 2023 at the International Cricket Stadium in Doha on Saturday, March 11. The Maharajas, led by Gautam Gambhir, had a disappointing start to their campaign, losing by nine runs to the Asia Lions, led by former Pakistan all-rounder Shahid Afridi, on Friday (March 10).

In the match, the Lions posted a respectable score of 165-6 after batting first, with Misbah-ul-Haq playing a brilliant knock of 73 off 50 deliveries, including two fours and four sixes. Gambhir scored 54 off 39 but couldn't help his team chase down the target.

The Giants, on the other hand, will be captained by Aaron Finch, who recently retired from all forms of international cricket. With Shane Watson, Chris Gayle, Lendl Simmons, and Hashim Amla in their batting lineup, the Giants boast a formidable batting unit. Watson and Kallis are also expected to contribute with their bowling, while the team's fast-bowling legend, Brett Lee, will also be in action. Additionally, Tino Best and Monty Panesar are part of the Giants' bowling lineup.
