Gujarat Giants will square off against Bhilwara Kings in the 11th match of the Legends League Cricket (LLC) 2022 on Friday, September 30 at Barkatullah Khan Stadium, Jodhpur, Rajasthan.

Both the teams have shared a somewhat similar fate, so far, in the tournament, winning two of their five matches while one of their fixtures was called off due to the rain. 

However, Bhilwara Kings are placed a spot ahead Gujarat, thanks to their better net run rate. Also, the Irfan Pathan-led side had decimated the Giants in the reverse fixture of the tournament.

Heading into the upcoming encounter, Virender Sehwag's men will look to avenge their loss at the hands of the Bhilwara Kings earlier in the season. 


Key Players

  • Kevin O'Brien: The Ireland all-rounder has accumulated 206 runs in five matches at an average of 41.20 and a strike rate of 162.20 including one century and a half-century. He also has one wicket to his name. 
  • Yusuf Pathan: The hard-hitting batter has amassed 164 runs in five matches at an average of 54.67 and a staggering strike rate of 167.35. He has also picked five wickets in three innings.
  • William Porterfield: In the last game against Gujarat Giants, Porterfield smashed 64 runs off just 33 balls. Overall, he has garnered 96 runs in three matches at an average of 32 and strike rate of 160.
  • Fidel Edwards: With 8 wickets in five matches, the right-arm quick is the leading wicket-taker for Bhilwara Kings. He also has a four-wicket haul to his name, which he picked against Manipal Tigers.
