ASIA LIONS VS. INDIA MAHARAJAS: LEGENDS LEAGUE CRICKET 2022, MATCH 4 | HOWZAT PREDICTION AND FANTASY CRICKET TIPS

In Round 2 of the group stages of the Legends League Cricket 2022 tournament, Asia Lions will take on India Maharajas in Match 4 at the Al Amerat Cricket Ground on Monday evening.

After losing the first match, Asia Lions chased down a huge total of 206 runs against World Giants in the last match. The two Lankan batters Tillakaratne Dilshan and Upul Tharanga have been in good form and will be key with the bat for the Lions.  

On the other hand, India Maharajas got themselves a winning start in the opening match against Asia Lions by 6 wickets, but lost to World Giants by 3 wickets in the second match. The team will look to do the double over Asia Lions in this match. 

Whoever wins this match will have better chances of making it to the final.

Weather Report

Muscat is expected to have slightly overcast conditions in the evening, with no threat of rain. The temperature will be around 21 degrees during the game. 

Pitch Report

As seen in the last three games played, the surface is an excellent one for batting. There will be some help for the pacers with the new ball. The variations in speed will be key to restricting the batters. The average first-innings score during the last three T20s played on this ground has been 197 runs.

Toss

Despite making big scores, the team that batted first on this surface has lost all three games in the tournament. So the captain winning the toss should choose to field first. A first-innings score of around 190 runs can be pretty competitive on this ground.

Top Fantasy Picks

Asia Lions

  • Upul Tharanga has scored two consecutive half centuries and looked like one of the most fluent batters at the crease in this tournament. He has made 129 runs in two matches at an average of 64.5, with his highest score of 66 coming in the previous match against India Maharajas.
  • Nuwan Kulasekara bowled well in the last match against World Giants, taking 2 for 17 in his four overs, including a maiden over. He took advantage of the early movement and help available for the pacers on this surface.

India Maharajas

  • Naman Ojha played an unbelievable innings of 140 runs against World Giants in the last match and became the first player to hit a century in the tournament. But his efforts went in vain as India Maharajas lost the match by 3 wickets. Expect him to put in a similar effort here.
  • Manpreet Gony is the highest wicket taker of the tournament so far. He has taken 4 wickets in two matches at an average of 24, with best figures of 3/45, which came against Asia Lions in the first match.
