Punjabi Legends vs Maratha Arabians, 5th Match Preview
Last year runner-up Punjabi Legends kick-start their T10 League campaign against Maratha Arabians tonight. Punjabi Legends lost to Kerala Kings in the inaugural final last year and would be desperate to clinch the title this time.
With Evin Lewis, Umar Akmal, Saiman Anwar and Philip Salt in their batting lineups, Legends will eye on Chris Jordan and Anwar Ali for their all-around abilities to bring some stability to the side. Moreover, the bowling line-up looks much stronger with the likes of Hasan Khan, M McClenaghan, M Sami. L Plunkett, Zahir Khan and Jade Dernbach.
Maratha Arabians have Rashid Khan as their iconic player and look pretty balanced with the likes of Kamran Akmal, Alex Hales, Dwayne Bravo, Brendan Taylor, and H Zazai.
