Here we tell you all you need to know about the 6 MCL teams:
#1 Libra Legends
Franchise Owner – Popcorn Sports and Entertainment Pvt. Ltd.
Icon Player – Jacques Kallis
Marquee Players – Sourav Ganguly, Graeme Swann
Predicted XI – Sourav Ganguly, Michael Lumb, Jacques Kallis, Ryan Ten Doeschate, Taufeeq Umar, Chris Read (wk), Sean Ervine, Graeme Swann, Brad Hogg, Shaun Tait, Ian Butler
Strengths – The Libra Legends have plenty of good all-rounders in the likes of Jacques Kallis, Ryan Ten Doeschate and Sean Ervine. They also have a potent spin attack led by offie Graeme Swann and chinaman Brad Hogg.
Weaknesses – The batting may be a cause of concern for the Libra Legends outside of Kallis, Ganguly and Ten Doeschate to some extent. They also don’t have a strong wicket-keeper batsman with Chris Read being the best possible option. The pace department may be found wanting with only the solitary world-class bowler in Shaun Tait.
