WORLD GIANTS VS. ASIA LIONS: LEGENDS LEAGUE CRICKET 2022, MATCH 2 | HOWZAT PREDICTION AND FANTASY CRICKET TIPS

World Giants will clash with Asia Lions in match 2 of the Legends League Cricket tournament at the Al Amerat Cricket Ground on Friday evening. 

Asia Lions lost the first match of the tournament to India Maharajas by 6 wickets. Despite a solid total on the board thanks to Upul Tharanga and captain Misbah’s enterprising knocks, the bowlers failed to put pressure on the Maharajas batters. The team will look to get back into winning ways in this match. 

On the other hand, World Giants will be playing their first match of the tournament. The Giants team is filled with superstars like Herschelle Gibbs, Kevin Pietersen, Daren Sammy and Brett Lee. Expect them to come all out at Asia Lions here.

Weather Report

Muscat is expected to have mostly clear skies in the evening, with no threat of rain. The temperature will be around 22 degrees during the game. 

Pitch Report

As seen during the game last night, the surface is a good one for batting. There will be help for the pacers with the new ball. In the second innings, the spinners will be able to get more help from the pitch. The average first-innings score during the last 7 T20s played on this ground has been 152 runs.

Toss

Although the team that batted first on this surface has won 3 out of the last 5 games here, it looks like a better choice to bowl first. A first-innings score of around 170 runs can be pretty competitive on this ground.

Top Fantasy Picks

World Giants

  • Kevin Pietersen is the inventor of the switch-hit shot that is regularly played by T20 batters these days. He is an attacking batter who can demolish any bowling attack, let alone Asia Lions. He has scored 5695 runs in 200 T20 matches at a superb strike-rate of 136.89, including 3 centuries.
  • Imran Tahir bowled a decent spell for Asia Lions in the last match. He bowled good lines and was getting movement from the surface too. He picked up a wicket and gave away just 21 runs.

Asia Lions

  • Upul Tharanga was the top scorer for Asia Lions in the last match, scoring 66 runs off just 46 balls. He looked in a good rhythm and was timing his shots very well. Tharanga will look to continue the scoring form here as well. 
  • Umar Gul was one of the two successful bowlers for Asia Lions in the last match. He bowled good lines but went for plenty for runs in his 2 overs. He picked up a wicket and gave away 30 runs.
