INM vs ASL Dream11 Prediction: The 4th match of Legends League Cricket will be played between Asia Lions and India Maharajas (INM vs ASL). This will be the 2nd time these two teams will face each other this season. In the previous encounter, Maharajas chased down a total against Lions and registered a comfortable win against them.
After defeating Asia Lions in the first game, Maharajas fell short while searching for a victory against World Giants. An outstanding extended cameo by Imran Tahir changed the game on its head and won it for Giants. India Maharajas would like to worm on their batting as twice only a single knock has saved them. Also, their bowling has looked clueless in the middle and death overs in both the games. Winning here would take the team quite close to the glory and that’s what will be on the cards.
Probable Playing XI: Naman Ojha (WK), Virender Sehwag (C), Mohammad Kaif, S Badrinath, Yuvraj Singh, Yusuf Pathan, Irfan Pathan, Pragyan Ojha, Manpreet Gony, RP Singh, Munaf Patel
After losing their first game, Asia Lions have faced a light of success as they defeated World Giants in an easy fixture. Thanks to the knock by Upul Tharanga, Lions looked absolutely in control of the chase and pulled it off in the end. They might make a few changes in the team and should also bring back Shoaib Akhtar in the bowling line-up. Their strength is the great form of their top order and Lions will again bank on it.
Probable playing XI: Sanath Jayasuriya, Tillakaratne Dilshan, Mohammed Hafeez, Misbah-Ul-Haq, Shoaib Malik, Misbah Ul Haq (c), Kamran Akmal (wk), Azhar Mahmood, N Kulasekara, Muttiah Muralitharan, Shoaib Akhtar

Batting has been quite easy on this pitch if you set your eye in. All the matches have been won by the team batting second and rightly so because of the dew factor. Both the teams will chase if they win the toss.
Harbhajan Singh has been ruled out of the tournament after testing positive for COVID-19.
INM vs ASL Dream11 Key players
Irfan Pathan: Irfan Pathan bowled extremely well in the first game, however, didn’t play in the second one. He should come to the squad in this match and his ability to bowl four overs apart from batting as. The finisher is unmatchable in this tournament. I picked up 2 wickets in the first match and scored the winning runs too.
Mohammad Kaif: The safe option while choosing your Fantasy XI is Mohammad Kaif. He has been a consistent batsman in both matches. Though his strike rate can be improved he has scored 95 runs in the first two games.
Virender Sehwag: As informed by Mohammad Kaif before the first game, Sehwag should return for the 3rd match. If he does, he will lead the side should light up the stadium with his fantastic aggressive play. He was in great form last year as well during the Road Safety series.
Shoaib Akhtar: Shoaib Akhtar took a break in the second game after a phenomenal first game. He should come back into the lineup and will be in limelight for the ability to create an impact. In the first game, he gave only 21 runs in 4 overs and picked up 1 important wicket.
Mohammad Hafeez: The former Pakistani all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez bats up the order and can contribute with his handy off-spin. His involvement in the game in both aspects can be a reason to pick him in your Fantasy XI.
T Dilshan: Dilshan played an amazing knock in the second game while opening the batting. He scored a 52 off 32 and his performance provided Lions with a great start. Having him in the team ensures high Fantasy points for his strike rate as well.
