WOG vs INM Dream11 Prediction: The 3rd match of Legends League Cricket will be played between World Giants and India Maharajas (WOG vs INM). Both the teams will be coming from different results as Maharajas defeated Asia Lions in the opening match and World Giants lost to the Lions in their first match of the showpiece event. While World Giants would be looking for a comeback, Maharajas must be looking to maintain their winning streak.
Though they faced a close defeat against Lions, their batting looked quite settled in the first game. Kevin O Brien played a mind-blowing knock of 95 and they were managed to put a total of 205 on the board. The problem lies with their bowling and the skipper Daren Sammy must be well aware of the fact. World Giants need to ensure the opposition doesn’t run away with the match again as Maharajas have quite an attacking batting line-up.
Probable playing XI: Brad Haddin (WK), Kevin Pietersen, Herschelle Gibbs, Kevin O Brien, Jonathan Trott, Corey Anderson, Albie Morkel, Daren Sammy (C), Daniel Vettori, Brett Lee, Imran Tahir
After defeating Asia Lions in the first game, Maharaj’s must be having their tail up. Yusuf Pathan played an amazing innings to take them home. Also their skipper Mohammad Kaif played a gritty knock to keep the chase on course. Their bowling, however, could have been better in the late half of the innings and they might tinker their line-up to give chance to other legends as well.
Probable Playing XI: Naman Ojha (WK), Sanjay Bangar, Mohammad Kaif, S Badrinath, Venugopal Rao, Yusuf Pathan, Irfan Pathan, Pragyan Ojha, Manpreet Gony, RP Singh, Munaf Patel

It has been an amazing pitch for batting in Oman. Both the games have been high scoring and the team batting second have chased the total down rather comfortably. The same pattern will be expected in the coming games as the dew should continue to play a role.

WOG vs INM Dream11 Key players
Kevin O Brien: The hero of the first game for World Giants is in amazing form and should look to continue the same. He played a phenomenal inning and can roll his arm over for a handy option for his skipper. Kevin O Brien scores at a very high strike rate and can be a good option for captaincy.
Kevin Pietersen: Kevin Pietersen was known to be an attacking batsman during his time and the fans are expecting the same in this league as well. He is expected to score big runs in the coming games as well. In the first game, the Englishman scored 14 runs including 2 sixes.
Imran Tahir: Imran Tahir is a star who has played international cricket recently. If World Giants can win the toss and bowl first, Tahir can play a major role. The dew won’t be there and with a proper grip, he can be quite effective.
Irfan Pathan: An all-rounder who bats in the middle order and bowls his quota of 4 overs is hard to find and Maharajas are blessed with one of them. Irfan Pathan has been an effective rounder in all senses and he scores at a brisk rate too. Irfan can be a safe choice for the captaincy option.
Naman Ojha: Opener and wicket-keeper, Naman Ojha has two qualities that usually earn a lot of Fantasy Points. Though we are yet to see him scoring runs in this tournament he can be an option to pick for Grand League.
Munaf Patel: Munaf Patel will be India’s option with the new ball and slog overs. Generally, bowlers pick wickets in these times and thus Munaf can earn a good amount of Fantasy points. The experienced pacer can be the right choice to pick as a bowler.

WOG vs INM Dream11 Match Prediction
India Maharajas won the first game comfortably but it was evident that apart from Yusuf Pathan their batting was struggling. They will again be missing the services of Virender Sehwag and Yuvraj Singh and that gives World Giants a great chance. However, the team batting second will have a clear advantage.
