LLC Special Match: India Maharajas exhibited a brilliant show with the bat to win the special match against World Giants by 6 wickets in the Legends Cricket League (LLC) match on Friday. The Maharaja conceded 170 runs in the first innings as Kevin O Brien and Ramdin smashed them all around the park in the first innings.

Kevin O’Brien provided a stellar start as he played an outstanding knock of 52 runs in 31 balls, including 9 fours and 1 six. Masakadza (18 off 15) and Kallis (12 off 14) failed to hit the straps but Rambin’s 42 off just 29 balls propelled World Giants to a competitive score of 170 runs on the board at the end of the first innings. It could have been an even bigger target had Pankaj Singh not made a sensational recovery in the latter half.

He bowled a three-wicket maiden in the final over of the innings and returned with figures of 5 for 26 in 4 overs. In reply, India Maharajas chased down the score in 18.4 overs. India was in big trouble at the start as they had both openers Sehwag (4) and Parthiv (18) sent back early in the innings.

However, Tanmay Srivastava then provided the required impetus and played a handy knock of 54 runs in 39 balls, including 8 fours and 1 six.  India had lost three wickets for 50 runs inside the first seven overs. World Giants looked like favourites to win at that stage.

But Tanmay and Yusuf Pathan had other ideas. The duo joined hands and added 103 runs for the fourth wicket and took the game away from the visitors. Tanmay got out in the 18th over but had done his job. Pathan went on to play an unbeaten match-winning knock of 50 runs in 35 balls, including 5 fours and 2 sixes. Irfan Pathan also provided valuable support in the end with an unbeaten 9-ball 20-run cameo and guided India Maharajas towards victory in the LLC Special Match.
