Bhilwara Kings are set to take on the Manipal Tigers in Match 2 of the Legends League Cricket 2022, at the Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium. Harbhajan Singh, who led the India Maharajas in the exhibition game, will be captaining the Manipal Tigers, while Irfan Pathan is set to lead the Bhilwara Kings. Both teams have some strong retired overseas contingent and it is expected to be an interesting battle.

The exhibition game ahead of the start of the tournament saw the India Maharajas winning against World Giants comfortably on the back of Pankaj Singh's five-wicket haul, while the Pathan brothers and Tanmay Srivastava also chipped in with batting contributions. They are likely to be the players to watch out for in the upcoming fixture.

Probable Top Performers

Probable best batter of the match:

Yusuf Pathan:

Yusuf Pathan has been in impecabble form in the recent times and he scored an unbeaten fifty in the exhibition match against World Giants to help his side to victory. The right-hander has got the skillset to excel against any bowling attack and his presence in the batting lineup is always a threat to the bowlers. 

Probable best bowler of the match:

Tim Bresnan:

Tim Bresnan was the only limelight in the bowling attack for World Giants in the exhibition game and he showed good control. The English-lad has got the knack of picking up wickets consistently and can hit the hard lengths. He can also provide handy runs down the order and will be looking to continue his good performance.
