Preview

The second edition of the Legends League Cricket is back and with more fun. The number of teams remains at four but it’s different from how it was in the first edition. While players from India played in one team (India Maharajas) in the first edition, they are playing for different teams. The likes of Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir, and Muttiah Muralitharan will be in action. In the match between Manipal Tigers and Bhilwara Kings, Harbhajan Singh and Irfan Pathan will lead their respective teams. 

Pitch Report

The Lucknow pitch is perfectly suited for T20. The pitch offers decent pace and bounce that helps the batters time the ball nicely. Bowlers also get to play their role. While spinners get to skid the ball, pacers can exploit the swing early on. 

Team Analysis

Manipal Tigers

Harbhajan Singh-led Manipal Tigers have got a really good squad. The bowling attack looks lethal with Singh, Muttiah Muralitharan, Imran Tahir, and Brett Lee in the mix. Tigers have also got quality all-rounders in Darren Sammy and Corey Anderson. Then they have got Phil Mustard, Mohammad Kaif, Ryan Sidebottom, and Lance Klusener to handle the batting department. It will be interesting to see if Harbhajan Singh plays with three spinners or if he will go with only two. Also, the pace attack of the Manipal Tigers only have one gun bowler in Brett Lee.
