India Legends seemed to be in good form throughout the tournament and topped the table with five wins in 6 matches before winning the semi-final against West Indies and the final against Sri Lanka. The only game that they lost was to Kevin Pietersen-led England Legends.
It was not an easy ride for the India Legends as Brian Lara-led West Indies seemed to be dominant in the semi-final against the Sachin Tendulkar-led team.
For most parts, the Windies were cruising in the match despite chasing a stiff target of 219. But some tight overs at the end from Manpreet Gony and Irfan Pathan pulled the match in the favour of the team.
