The Darren Sammy-led World Giants will be up against Misbah-ul-Haq’s Asia Lions. While the World Giants will have the likes of Brett Lee, Kevin Petersen, Jonty Rhodes, Brad Haddin, Morne Morkel, Asia Lions will bank on Sanath Jayasuriya Shahid Afridi, Tilkarathne Dilshan. The match is expected to be a thriller with the greats of the game back in action.

With the Legends of the game back in action, a lot of fantasy points will also be on offer. It may be overwhelming and confusing for the fans to choose from such big names available. However, wise selections can earn good points. From the batsmen category, Sanath Jayasuriya, Dilshan, Kevin Pietersen make a good combination. Shahid Afridi, Corey Anderson, and Darren Sammy are good choices for all-rounders. Muttiah Muralitharan, Brett Lee, Morne Morkel, Umar Gul are the bowlers who can fetch some real good points. There is not too much data and stats given as these are retired cricketers so it’s recommended to finalize the XI only once the actual XIs are out.
Wicketkeepers: Kamran Akmal, Brad Haddin
Batsmen: Upul Tharanga, Misbah-ul-Haq, Kevin Pietersen, Herschelle Gibbs, Darren Sammy, Jonty Rhodes
All-rounders: Shahid Afridi, Mohammad Hafeez, Albie Morkel
