Libra Legends v Gemini Arabians- Oxigen Masters Champions League 2016
Virender Sehwag leads Gujarat Giants

The Gujarat Giants will meet the Bhilwara Kings in the Eliminator of the Legends League Cricket 2022 on Monday, October 3, for a place in the finals of the tournament. The match, set to take place at the Barkatullah Khan Stadium in Jodhpur, promises to be an entertaining one.

The two teams have clashed against each other twice already this season, with the Kings hammering the Giants on both occasions. Can Gujarat flip the tables in the match that matters most?

The Giants lost their way through the latter part of the tournament to finish third on the points table. Their last match was interestingly against the Kings.

Except for Chris Gayle and Yashpal Sharma, no other batsman could make a mark and the Giants only scored 186 in their 20 overs. The target was chased down comfortably by the Kings.

Bhilwara, meanwhile, is coming into this match following a loss against the Indian Capitals. The qualifier between the two teams was an absolute run fest.

Batting first, the Kings scored 226 in their 20 overs. William Porterfield and Shane Watson scored 59 and 65 respectively to take their team to a massive total. Yusuf Pathan and Rajesh Bishnoi also chipped in by scoring 48 and 36 respectively.

It seemed to be a defendable target at one stage, but it wasn’t to be as the Kings lost the game in the last over.
