The third edition of the Legends League Cricket (LLC) gets underway with a match between India Maharajas and Asia Lions. While Gautam Gambhir will be at the helm of affairs for India Maharajas, Pakistan all-rounder Shahid Afridi will take care of Asia Lions. The two teams have assembled full-strength squads and thus a mouth-watering contest will be on the cards.
While India Maharajas have got the likes of Gambhir, Yusuf Patha, Manvinder Bisla, Mohammad Kaif, and Suresh Raina, Asia Lions boast of Misbah-ul-Haq, Tilakratne Dilshan, Thisara Perera among several others. The two teams also have a full-strength bowling lineup with Muttiah Muralitharan, Irfan Pathan, S Sreesanth, and Mohammad Amir in the mix.
The pitch at West End Park International Cricket Stadium, Doha is a typical Middle East wicket. The surface will be dry and slow, aiding the spinners. Meanwhile, the batters will have to use power to send the ball over the boundary ropes.
India Maharajas Squad: Gautam Gambhir (c), Mohammad Kaif, Murali Vijay, Suresh Raina, Irfan Pathan, Yusuf Pathan, Manvinder Bisla, Robin Uthappa, Ashok Dinda, Harbhajan Singh, Joginder Sharma, Parvinder Awana, Pragyan Ojha, Praveen Kumar, Pravin Tambe, S Sreesanth, Stuart Binny

India Maharajas have dominated Asia Lions in the previous editions. Also, the players in the squad have been playing cricket somewhere or the other making it easier for them to get into the groove straightaway.
