The reverse fixture between the India Capitals and  Manipal Tigers, which is the 12th match in the Legends League Cricket Tournament, will be played at the Barkatullah Khan stadium in Jodhpur. India Capitals are already in pole position but having said that, it will be a very important match for the Manipal Tigers, who will be looking to get some all-important points on the board.

Team News

India Capitals

They will be led by Gautam Gambhir, who has led the India Capitals well ever in the tournament thus far. The India Capitals have a strong batting lineup and the likes of Solomon Mire and Hamilton Masakadza have been scoring heavily for the India Capitals which has led them to post big totals on the board. They have won three games out of the five and lost one with one being a no result.

Manipal Tigers

Captaincy has been a tough art for Harbhajan to implement as what has been a sorry state of affairs for the Manipal Tigers. They have had only one win and that was a close win by 3 runs. Barring that, they have failed to fire as a unit which has led them to have a very bad campaign as a side.
