World Giants vs Asia Lions: World Giants will take on Asia Lions in the fifth match of the Legends League Cricket 2022 on Wednesday, 26th January 2022 at the Al Amerat Cricket Ground Oman Cricket (Ministry Turf 1), Oman, Oman.
After suffering a defeat in their opening game against Asia Lions, World Giants made a strong comeback in the previous match against India Maharajas. Chasing a target of 210, the Giants were almost out of the game until the 15th over. However, Imran Tahir did the impossible as he hammered a 19 ball 52 to guide his side over the finishing line and grab the second spot in the points table.
On the other hand, Asia Lions are standing at the top spot in the points table with two wins in three games. They started the season with a loss but bounced back to grab two consecutive wins. The Lions come into this game on the back of a 46-run win over India Maharajas and a win in this game would guarantee them a place in the finals.
