The third edition of the Legends League Cricket (LLC) Masters is underway in Doha. The fifth match will see India Maharajas going head-to-head with World Giants in a reverse fixture on Wednesday (March 15). While Gautam Gambhir is leading Maharajas at the helm of affairs, former Australia captain Aaron Finch is leading the World Giants. The two teams have assembled full-strength squads and thus a mouth-watering contest will be on the cards.
Talking about the previous match, World Giants won the toss and opted to bat first. They posted 166/8 in their 20 overs, the India Maharajas fell short of just two runs as they scored 164/5 in their 20 overs.
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 (wk), Robin Uthappa, Ashok Dinda, Harbhajan Singh, Parvinder Awana, Pragyan Ojha, Praveen Kumar, Pravin Tambe, S Sreesanth, Stuart Binny, Reetinder Sodhi

World Giants have dominated India Maharajas in the last four head-to-head matches. With India Maharajas yet to win a match, World Giants look the better side to win return fixture.
