8th December, 2023, Surat: After 21 days of all fireworks, the Legends League Cricket has reached the final showdown in Surat as debutantes Urbanrisers Hyderabad and Manipal Tigers have reached the finals. Captains Suresh Raina and Harbhajan Singh looked very relaxed in the pre final press conference today as they posed with the trophy and discussed their road to the finals. Both captains spoke about what it means to the team to be a part of the Legends League Cricket in their first season and reaching the finals as they have multiple times, even as team mates in the Indian Cricket team and also with their respective teams in other leagues.

The road to the finals for both the teams were full of explosive cricket in the league stages and the qualifiers as Urbanrisers Hyderabad was the first team to qualify for the finals as they beat Manipal in Qualifier 1. Manipal had to go through the grind and await their turn in what was the Semi Finals against India Capitals in a narrow win to set up the clash against Urbanrisers in the finals.

“Legends League Cricket has been as competitive as any cricket we have played and we are looking forward to an equally good game of cricket in the finals. Both of us have played many finals both together and against each other and I know that this experience will be as good as the others.” said Suresh Raina in the pre final press conference.

“It was a good road to the finals and we are very glad to have made it on our debut as well. Legends League Cricket has been a very fun experience and has seen equally competitive cricket. Playing across four cities including Ranchi, Dehradun, Jammu, Vizag and finally now in Surat has also been great for promoting sport in these cities where international cricket has not been played traditionally and we have also been very happy with the playing conditions everywhere.” said, Harbhajan Singh.

“We thank everyone who has watched, supported and enjoyed the Legends League Cricket. The people of every city have welcomed our league and come out to the stadiums in huge numbers to watch their favourite cricketers and legends of the cricketing world. We looking forward to the finals in the sold out Lalbhai Contractor Stadium on Saturday.” said, Mr. Raman Raheja, CEO, Legends League Cricket

Kaif, Praveen Kumar and Asghar Aghan amongst other legends.

“Whoever wins tomorrow, we know the aim of this league is to make sure that Cricket and cricket lovers win at the end of the Legends League Cricket.” signed off both the captains.
