Pankaj Singh picked up a fifer before half-centuries from Tanmay Srivastava and Yusuf Pathan drove India Maharajas to a comfortable six-wicket win over World Giants in a special exhibition game, which kickstarts Legends League Cricket 2022 at Eden Gardens, Kolkata. Srivastava and Yusuf notched up fifties and put up a century stand to bail their team out from a precarious position. Srivastava scored 54 off 39, while Yusuf remained unbeaten on 50 off 35 balls. Irfan then finished the game with his 9-ball 20, decorated with three sixes. The proceeds from this benefit match will be handed over to Kapil Dev's NGO, which bats for girl child education. Former India captain and BCCI president Sourav Ganguly earlier expressed his inability to actively participate as a cricketer in the benefit match, but said he will be extending all his support at the iconic venue. Virender Sehwag will now be leading Gujarat Giants versus Gautam Gambhir's India Capitals in the tournament opener on Saturday (September 17). The competition is being played in India for the first time.
