Indian Maharajas vs World Giants contest took a sensational turn when Imran Tahir stepped in for World Giants and hit 5 huge sixes. In an epic T20 encounter, Legends Cricket League, Imran Tahir hit five giant sixes and remained unbeaten 52 off just 19 balls to help his side score an impressive three-wicket win for his team.
Imran Tahir, who is renowned for his clinical bowling performance, came to bat at a demanding situation, when the team needed 70 runs in 6.2 overs and had just four wickets in hand.
Naman Ojha’s sensational 140 off 69 was consigned to a footnote thanks to some berserk lower-order hitting and incredibly loose fielding by India Maharajas, who went down by three wickets against World Giants.
For Giants, the writing nearly seemed on the walls after they were reduced to 99/4 and then 130/6 in a 210-chase. However, they redeemed themselves after failing to defend a target of the same magnitude against the Asia Lions only 24 hours ago at the same venue.
