MCL: It’s Sehwag vs Lara in the Final

Masters Champions League

Dubai: The Virender Sehwag-led Gemini Arabians are in the final battle with the Brian Lara-led Leo Lions for the Masters Champions League trophy here at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Saturday.

The mighty Arabians are very much favourites as at one side there are skipper Sehwag and veteran Sri Lankan wicket-keeper/ batsman Kumar Sangakkara’s demolishing touch  while on the other side, Kyle Mills and Muttiah Muralitharan’s disciplinary bowling through-out the tournament.

However, there is nothing anyone can predict in a twenty20 game as it is a game of uncertainties.

Arabians knocked out Adam Gilchrist-led Sagittarius Strikers while Lions sidelined Graeme Smith-led Virgo Super Kings to reach the Final.


Leo Lions: Hamish Marshall, Neil Carter, Brendan Taylor(w), James Franklin, Brian Lara(c), Scott Styris, Johan Botha, Robin Peterson, Heath Streak, Kyle Jarvis, Fidel Edwards, Simon Jones, Darren Gough, Ramesh Powar, Mohammad Tauqir, Herschelle Gibbs

Gemini Arabians: Virender Sehwag(c), Richard Levi, Kumar Sangakkara(w), Brad Hodge, Jacques Rudolph, Justin Kemp, Naved-ul-Hasan, Kyle Mills, Saqlain Mushtaq, Graham Onions, Muttiah Muralitharan, Ashish Bagai, Paul Harris, Saqib Ali, Shivnarine Chanderpaul
