The cricket legends have made a comeback to the ground and are clashing against each other in the ongoing Legends League Cricket. India Maharajas and World Giants faced off in the 2nd match of the tournament at the West End Park International Stadium in Doha on Saturday, March 11. The Maharajas already lost their first match to Asia Lions while the Giant played their first match of the tournament.
Meanwhile, former Indian spinner Harbhajan Singh produced a magical delivery during the first innings to get rid of the destructive left-handed opener Chris Gayle which left the batter shocked and even Harbhajan himself was in disbelief. Harbhajan delivered the ball way outside the leg stump and the batter thought that it’d go for a wide but the ball took a lot of turn from there and hit the leg stump.

A brilliant all-round performance by World Giants
Talking about the match, the Giants led by Aaron Finch won the toss and decided to bat first but suffered a huge blow when they lost Gayle in the 3rd over. However, later, the Australian duo Shane Watson and Aaron Finch started hammering every bowler out of the park as they stitched a magnificent 88-run stand for the second wicket.
Finch was trapped by Pravin Tambe in the 9th over and brilliantly caught by Robin Uthappa behind the wickets. He scored 53 runs off just 31 deliveries which included 7 fours and 3 sixes. On the other hand, Watson also smashed a half-century and departed after scoring 55 runs off 32 balls. He smashed 5 fours and 3 sixes during his knock. However, Indian Maharajas’ bowlers made a brilliant comeback and restricted the opponents to 166 runs.
Harbhajan bowled brilliantly and picked up 4 wickets in just 2 overs. Tambe also bowled well and took 2 wickets while conceding only 17 runs in his 4 overs. Chasing the target, the Maharajas started well as both Uthappa and Gautam Gambhir provided a flying start but after their departure, the middle order disappointed the fans once again as the Maharajas lost the match by 2 runs.
