Legends Cricket League 2022: Four all-star former Indian cricketers will lead their respective teams in the second edition of the tournament.
The legends of the game will revive and enjoy their glorious cricket careers as they take part in the second edition of the Legends Cricket League which will start on the 16th of September and the final will be played on the 8th of October.
The Darren Sammy-led World Giants were the winners of the inaugural season last year, defeating the Asia Lions by 26 runs in what was a three-team tournament that took place in Oman, with India Maharajas as the third team.
The success of the inaugural season has paved the way for a second edition, in which four teams will now face each other, with four former Indian legends set to lead their respective sides.
Gujarat Giants, led by Virender Sehwag, India Capitals, led by Gautam Gambhir, Bhilwara Kings, led by Irfan Pathan, and Manipal Tigers, led by Harbhajan Singh, are the four teams participating in the new season.
A total of 15 matches will be played in five cities, namely Kolkata, Lucknow, New Delhi, Cuttack and Jodhpur.
To mark the celebration of 75 years of India’s Independence, a special match between the India Maharajas and the World XI will be held on 16 September at Eden Gardens, Kolkata.
