The Indian team lost the match by 3 wickets to World Giants. Batting first, India Maharajas scored 136 runs thanks to Suresh Raina’s 49 runs from 41 balls. However, impactful innings from Chris Gayle and Shane Watson won the match for the World Giants.

“I am Suresh Raina, not Shahid Afridi! I’ve taken the retirement,” said the former India vice-captain.


Meanwhile India Maharajas could win only 1 match in the 3 matches and does they will have to play a eliminator match against the 2nd placed team (not confirmed yet) to qualify for the final of the Legends League Cricket 2023 that will be played on the 20th of March.
