Shahid Afridi, Misbah-ul-Haq, Muttiah Muralitharan, Robin Uthappa, Lendl Simmons, and S Sreesanth will participate in the upcoming Legends League Cricket season, which will be held in Doha, Qatar, in February and March 2023.
The second season was one that we thoroughly enjoyed. We had no idea how tough the competition would be, and every player played their best. Given the variety of teams from around the world, Asia, and India, we anticipate a more exciting season this year. “When I play for India, it is always a proud moment for me,” Sreesanth said in a formal statement.
During the league’s 15 matches, which were held in six cities across India and attracted 1.2 billion fans from around the world, the best cricketers in the country played at a high level of competitive cricket.
“While I was commentating on the previous season of Legends League Cricket, it was wonderful to watch the Legends play. The enthusiasm inspires me. I will now be playing on the field with my former teammates. “It will be fun,” Uthappa declared.
Starting in February, three teams—the World Giants, the Asia Lions, and the Indian Maharajas—will compete for the title of champions in the current format. World Giants took home the first trophy last year thanks to some outstanding performances by the legends.
Muralitharan stated, “We look forward to playing this season with even more enthusiasm and fun.” Playing with old friends and rivals will be entertaining. Afridi added, “I am looking forward to a competitive season.”
The Legends League Cricket community’s faith in clean and transparent cricket has been strengthened by the league’s recent hire of Simon Taufel as Director of Match Ethics & Regulations. For clean cricket, he will bring in more scrutiny.
So far, confirmed players include: Shahid Afridi (Pakistan), Misbah-ul-Haq (Pakistan), Lendl Simmons (West Indies), Muttiah Muralitharan (Asia Lions), and S Sreesanth (India Maharajas) are all World Giants.
