India Legends will take on SriLanka Legends in the Final match on 21st March. Both the teams have done exceptionally well throughout the series and that’s why they are rightly at the top of the points table.
India Legends have won five out of six matches but the job is not yet done. They have really good chances to win the final. Their batters have to perform really well to set a good total because their bowling department is not that lethal. They will come as favourites in the match.
On the other hand, Sri Lanka legends are also a balanced side. Sri Lankan cricket team has been known for its tactics. They have won several matches in the past by executing the tactics. They have some really good match winners.
