World Giants beat India Maharajas: Brett Lee’s last-over heroics trump Irfan Pathan, Maharajas as Giants seal five-run win in thriller

- Advertisement -

World Giants beat India Maharajas – Naman Ojha’s 95 went in vain as Brett Lee showed his class to deny India Maharajas a consolation win in the Legends Cricket League. Chasing 229 to win, India Maharajas remained in the contest following Ojha’s 95, who got support from captain Yusuf Pathan, who scored a quick-fire 45. When the match seemed out of hand, Irfan Pathan chipped in with a timely half-century to reduce the equation to just eight of the final over. However, Lee got Pathan first ball and defend the score, helping the Giants to a nail-biting five-run win. Follow Legends Cricket League LIVE Updates on InsideSport.IN
