According to reports, Yuvraj Singh, Harbhajan Singh and Virender Sehwag will be a part of the India Maharajas team in the inaugural season of the Legends League Cricket which is a cricket league featuring retired star cricketers from all over the world. The tournament starts on 20th July and all the matches will be played at Oman’s Al Amerat cricket stadium.
The first season of the one of a kind cricket tournament will feature only three teams and the organizers are hoping to expand based on the first season’s response. Given the huge fan following that the Road Safety World Series got (which has a similar idea of bringing in retired players from around the world) it can be expected the the Legends League Cricket will also get a good response.
The three teams will be India, Asia and Rest of the world.
Irfan Pathan, Yusuf Pathan, Badrinath, RP Singh, Pragyan Ojha, Naman Ojha, Manpreet Gony, Hemang Badani, Venugopal Rao, Munaf Patel, Sanjay Bangar, Nayan Mongia and Amit Bhandari will also be a part of the India Maharajas team alongside the aforementioned three.
“Like true Kings, they will come, they would see and they would conquer. The Cricket Maharajas from India are coming together to take on the battle against the other two top teams from Asia and rest of the World,” said Ravi Shastri who is also a commissioner of the Legends League Cricket.
“It would be the mother of all rivalries when Sehwag, Yuvraj, Bhajji play against Afridi, Murali, Chaminda, Shoaib, this will be a blast from the past for the fans,” he added.
