Sri Lanka Legends
While Sri Lanka Legends beat Australia Legends in the last year but lost against India Legends in that same year, they are playing superbly this year as they just beat West Indies Legends and South Africa Legends very comfortably. Another victory will secure their spot for the semi-final of this tournament.
In their first game of this year, Sri Lankan bowlers were much disciplined despite not picking up many wickets. In that game against West Indies Legends, skipper Tillakaratne Dilshan (47 runs off 37 balls) and Upul Tharanga (53 not out off 35 balls) batted strongly and chased the 158 runs target very comfortably.
In the last game against South Africa Legends, Sri Lanka Legends bowled impressively to bundle out their opposition for just 89 runs. Pacer Nuwan Kulasekara (2/13) and left-arm spinners Rangana Herath (2/11) and Sanath Jayasuriya (2/24) all took two wickets each in that match. Captain Dilshan (50 not out 40 balls) scored an unbeaten fifty in that match while Upul Tharanga also scored 27 not out off 31 balls.
