The countdown for the Legends League Cricket has started as cricketing greats from 10 nations are set to descend in Kolkata, with the league kickstarting on September 16.

The benefit match between Indian Maharajas and World Giants will be led by one of India’s most successful opening batters, Virender Sehwag and legendary South African allrounder, Jacques Kallis, respectively.

With the urge to watch the Legends in action again, there has been a high demand for the tickets as fans are gearing up to watch their heroes dominate the 22 yards once again.

Raman Raheja, Co-Founder & CEO, Legends League Cricket, said, “There has been huge demand from fans and we have already started feeling the excitement too. The numbers on BookmyShow are fast picking up across all cities as well as enquiries for hospitality packages have been very very encouraging. We hope to give fans a world class experience at every touch point whether on the field or digitally and that is the reason why we have handpicked our stakeholders too.”

Delhi will be hosting three league stage matches, starting with India Capitals vs Bhilwara Kings on September 22 at the Arun Jaitley Stadium followed by Gujarat Giants and Bhilwara Kings and a marquee clash between the Giants and India Capitals at 4 PM, wherein both the Delhi Boys, Sehwag and Gambhir will play against each other.
