Libra Legends are scheduled to play Virgo Super Kings in the sixth match of 2016 Masters Champions League on 3 February at Sharjah Cricket Stadium. The match has been scheduled to kicks off at 15:00 local time, 11:00 GMT, 16:30 IST and 16:00 PST(Pakistan Timing).
Both teams are coming in Sharjah after facing big defeats in their opening matches of the tournament. Libra Legends lost first match of MCL 2016 against Gemini Arabians whereas Virgo Super Kings failed to beat Sagittarius Strikers in the third game of tournament.
It will be a crucial match for both teams as which ever team lose this game, the possibilities for qualifying in semi-final will become less as their will be only three matches left for both teams. Obviously Libra Legends are missing their captain Sourav Ganguly who ruled out himself from inaugural event due to back injury. Jacques Kallis has to lead the side from front.
Libra bowlers need to hit the right lengths against top players like Graeme Smith, Yousuf, Oram, Rhodes and Shah. If they fail to do it, team can face big total just like previous match when Gemini put 234 runs on the scoreboard.
On the other hand Virgo Super Kings team will be relying on their batting stars Smith, Yousuf, McKenzie, Farhat to score quick and big runs in the match to survive. Let’s have a look at the expected playing line-ups for Wednesday match.
