World Giants will be up against India Maharajas in the 5th match of the Legends Cricket League 2022 on Wednesday. After heartbreak in the opening game against Asia Lions, World Giants claimed an improbable victory over India Maharajas in their second fixture by 3 wickets, thanks to a special inning from Imran Tahir, who finished things with his unbeaten half-century. He will miss the remainder of the tournament as he is set to take part in PSL.

Things aren’t going in favour of the India Maharajas. They lost two back-to-back matches on the trot and their final contention is still hangs in the balance. The Maharajas must win this match by a bigger margin to stay alive in this tournament. They experimented a lot with their team combination which back-fired them.

Pitch Report:

It’s a tailor-made surface for the batters with very little help for the bowlers. Batting will become much easier in the latter half of the match and hence bowling first is a good option.
