Shoaib Akhtar and Harbhajan Singh will battle it out again in the field.
The Legends League Cricket is all set to be back after the previous edition turned out to be a massive hit and there have been changes made to the structure of the tournament. Only three teams will be participating in this edition namely, the India Maharajas comprising of legends from the country, Asia Lions comprising of players from the combined legends from the Asian continent excluding India, and the World Giants side with the legends from the remaining continents except for Asia.
The tournament will go on for a period of nine days starting from January 20th and the squads were recently named for the upcoming edition. The God of cricket, Sachin Tendulkar who was part of the Road Safety World T20 series comprising of legends will not be taking part in this tournament which is a massive miss for the fans. However, there are some legendary names in the squads with a lot of entertainment awaiting on the cards.
