    Wonderful match that. Imran Khan played a captain's innings and his all round efforts helped us win the match. But who was the mainstay of the batting, yup Rahul Dravid deserves every credit for it. Brilliantly done. Tendulkar had an off match but maybe that's a calm before the storm. The big final is coming and he will be ready!

    Mohammad wk
    Sehwag
    Dravid
    Tendulkar
    Sangakkara
    S Al Hasan
    I Khan c
    K Khan e
    Akram

    Muralitharan

    Two undefeated teams in the final, couldn't have got better than that. They are a challenge for us and now let's show them our A game and win the league. Should be a cracker!

    The North American side consisting mostly of West Indian cricketers, but with two more than competent Americans in Bart King and George Patterson emerged victors of Legends At Battle Season VII. Asia were forced to settle for second best after a unbeaten run in the tournament prior to the final.

    [​IMG]

    Gordon Greenidge was adjudged Man of the Match for his scores of 140 and 38 in the match. Just like the previous season, he had saved his best performance for the last and most crucial match of the tournament.

    [​IMG]

    After a miserable tournament, the Oceanians had something to cheer about with Richard Hadlee being declared Player of the Season for an astonishing haul of 36 wickets in just 5 matches at an average of 18.03. He picked four 5-wicket hauls and one 10-wicket match haul, which came in one innings with him picking an unbelievable 10/46 against eventual champions North America.

    Though we were the favourites I expected a close match. Greenidge did justification to his place by scoring the match winning inngs. Richards, Lara and Worrell supported him very well in the batting. It's not easy to leave the likes of Ambrose, Holding, Garner, etc. We had a game plan in mind to bat deep and we stuck to that. With the kind of players we got my job became very simple to rotate the players and bring the best out of them when it mattered.

    Thanks for another exciting league @VC the slogger

    Well played North America. Deserving winners. Our batsmen failed in the first innings and failed badly and that's what set us back and then from there on it was catch up cricket really. Really impressed with Shakib's batting in both the innings. Only positive for us really.

    Thanks for another wonderful season VC. I am always in for this league whenever this resumes. Congrats PCA for winning.

    *BUMP*

    I've found yet another good excuse to bring this back to life once again. The theme this time around is World XIs spread across the six prominent timelines of international cricket, namely: Early Test cricket, spanning from the first Test match ever played in 1877 to 1889; The Golden Age, spanning from 1890 to 1913 just prior to the start of the First World War; the period coinciding with the two World Wars, known as the Interwar Period, spanning from 1914 to 1945; the Post-war Period spanning from 1946 to 1975, which was a rebuilding phase for the entire world following two of the deadliest conflicts in the history of mankind; the Professional Era spanning from 1976 to 2002, a revolutionary period which forever changed the way the game of cricket was played up till that point; and lastly the Twenty20 Era, a period coinciding with the rise of T20 cricket as a major force in the global game, spanning from 2003 to the present day.

    The squads of these six World XIs have already been selected by me and contain a fair mix of legends from the 10 Test-playing nations, as well as a few from countries that haven't had the privilege of gaining that elusive "Test status" from the ICC. As a result, several legends such as Clive Lloyd, Bert Ironmonger, Trevor Goddard, Virender Sehwag etc missed the cut in order to make room for good associate players who in my opinion could have aced Test cricket had they been given the opportunity to do so. I did what I could. Besides, a "World XI" needs to include players from as many different nationalities as possible. Squad changes are not permitted.

    Hoping to get this underway once I complete Round 3 of my ongoing 2019 World Cup European qualifiers. In the meantime, sign-ups are open for the teams mentioned above. Please note that the selection of managers will not necessarily be on a first-come first-serve basis. People who have participated in this league before are also likely to get the nod over newer members (in most cases), as long as they are active enough to drop by once a week or so to post lineups. I won't be posting matches any faster than that.

    Cheers.
