The ongoing League Legends Cricket 2023 tournament has fans buzzing with excitement as they get to see their favorite cricket legends in action once again. In the fifth match of the tournament, World Giants took on India Maharajas in what promised to be a thrilling encounter.

Giants won the toss and elected to field first. In the absence of their regular skipper, Gautam Gambhir, India Maharajas were led by former Indian spinner Harbhajan Singh. Batting first, Maharajas notched up 136 runs on the board and lost nine wickets in the process.

It was the knock of former Indian batter Suresh Raina that was integral to the team’s being able to score that many runs. The 36-year-old truly turned back the clock as he managed to score 49 runs off 41 deliveries. During his innings, Raina hit two fours and three sixes in classic fashion and also played his trademark shot.
