The third edition of the Legends League Cricket (LLC) Masters is underway in Qatar and India Maharajas tasted their first win on Tuesday when they beat Asia Lions. The Gautam Gambhir-led team thrashed Shahid Afridi and Co. by ten wickets as Robin Uthappa and captain Gambhir scored brisk half-centuries. However, it was a moment during India Maharajas bowling that has caught the attention of the fans.
Maharajas’ all-rounder Irfan Pathan hogged the limelight for uniquely celebrating a stunning catch. As Pathan took a sharp catch to dismiss Lions’ Tilakratne Dilshan while he was fielding at point, the all-rounder backed it with a special celebration. Pathan was seen recreating Yuzvendra Chahal’s unique pose wherein he can be seen lying casually on the ground.

However, from the video it can’t be claimed that Pathan intentionally created that pose or that it was a coincidence. Nevertheless, the fans enjoyed every part of it.
Coming to India Maharaja's win, it was as emphatic as it could get. The opening pair of Gambhir and Uthappa never allowed Asia Lions to settle and chased down the target in just 12.3 overs. While Gambhir remained unbeaten on 61 (36), Uthappa ended with an unbeaten 88 against his name which he scored in just 39 balls. On the back of this partnership, India Maharaja registered their first win of the season. However, it seems to have not done much as the Maharajas are on the cusp of losing another game.
