New Delhi: The same legendary players, the same arch-rivals and a neck-to-neck fight between them… Yes the thrill of Legends Cricket League (LLC 2023) has begun. The veterans of the Indian team have also started making a splash in this. Where Asia Lions is being captained by Shahid Afridi, the responsibility of India Maharaja rests on the shoulders of Gautam Gambhir. Suresh Raina’s amazing catch was seen in the match played between Asia Lions and India Maharaj on Friday. Raina stunned with his brilliant fielding at the boundary.
Misbah-ul-Haq’s explosive batting
Electing to bat first, former Pakistani cricketer Misbah-ul-Haq presented a blistering batting spectacle for the Asia Lions. Misbah hit 2 fours and 4 sixes in 50 balls and scored 73 runs at a strike rate of 146. He was dismissed in the 18th over while batting explosively. As soon as Stuart Binny bowled the third ball of this over, Misbah lofted it towards long on, but as soon as the ball fell in the air, Raina, standing near the boundary, showed quickness and took a brilliant catch.
