Harbhajan, Irfan Pathan to lead Manipal Tigers and Bhilwara King teams of Legends League Cricket
Legends League Cricket franchise teams completed their Captain roster by naming the skippers of the last two teams on Friday.
The 2011 World Cup winning squad member, Harbhajan Singh will be spinning webs for the Manipal Tigers while Irfan Pathan, the former India allrounder will helm the affairs for the Bhilwara King team.
While Pathan’s swing and Harbhajan’s deadly doosras have captivated the fans for years, it will be a great opportunity for cricketing enthusiasts to see their favourite stars in action once again.
Harbhajan Singh, who took 417 test wickets kept the flag flying for finger spin in an era of prolific wrist spinners. He has represented India in 28 T20 Internationals along with 103 test matches and 236 ODIs.
“Playing alongside all great players over the years, I have picked the nuances of the game which has made me a better cricketer. As a Cricketer, I did not get an opportunity to Captain the team but this will be something I am really looking forward to. I love leading from the front and I hope I can do justice to the responsibility and faith shown to me,” said Harbhajan Singh, Skipper, Manipal Tigers.
