Twitter Reacts After Kamran Akmal Drops A Catch In Legends League Cricket

The first edition of the Legends League Cricket got underway in Oman yesterday with India Maharajas locking horns with Asia Lions in the first match. Due to personal reasons, Virender Sehwag, Yuvraj Singh and Harbhajan Singh missed the game. Still, the India Maharajas managed to defeat the Asia Lions by six wickets.

Asia Lions received an invitation to bat first from India Maharajas’ stand-in skipper Mohammad Kaif in the first match. A half-century from Upul Tharanga helped the Asia Lions post a 175-run total on the board. Tharanga scored 66 runs off 46 deliveries. He received great support from captain Misbah-ul-Haq who smashed 44 runs off 30 balls.

Yusuf Pathan stole the show with a 40-ball 80, while captain Mohammad Kaif supported him with an unbeaten 37-ball 42*. Yusuf’s brother Irfan Pathan played a brilliant cameo of 21 runs from just 10 deliveries as India Maharajas won the match.
