After 18 matches of pure vintage cricket and enticing action, we have finally boiled down to the final of the showpiece event. India Legends take on the Sri Lanka Legends in this highly anticipated clash. The last time two teams met in a final in India, history was created as India went on to lift the ODI World Cup after 28 years. Stakes will be higher and action will be unlimited. The match is scheduled to begin at 7:00 PM (IST).
India Legends have been a juggernaut in this series. Veterans of the Indian team were on display and the Sachin Tendulkar-led side won all the matches except one match against the same opposition, Sri Lanka. They finished on top of the table, courtesy a better NRR. Virender Sehwag has been India’s leading run-scorer in the tournament with 204 runs under his belt. He is followed by Sachin Tendulkar, who has scored 203 runs. Munaf Patel has taken 8 wickets in the tournament and is a force to reckon with in the series.
Sri Lankan too have been absolutely dominant in the tournament. Skipper TM Dilshan is leading the charts of both leading run scorers and leading wicket takers. He is a must-have in the team and ideally should be made captain or vice-captain of your fantasy team. Nuwan Kulasekara bagged the Man of the Match in the semi-final after he went berserk and picked up 5 wickets.
