Can Jacques Kallis guide Libra Legends to their first victory in the Masters Champions League?Reuters

Libra Legends have to push up their performances in the Master Champions League 2016 now as they are yet to win a single game so far. The Jacques Kallis-skippered side have lost both of their fixtures so far in this T20 tournament for retired players.

Therefore, a win against Sagittarius Strikers on Thursday at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium will be of utmost importance to them. 

Sagittarius Strikers have won one game so far and have lost one. While they won their opening match of the competition against Virgo Super Kings by 26 runs on last week, the Adam Gilchrist-skippered side lost their second match against Capricorn Commanders by three runs at the weekend.

Boasting the likes of Mahela Jayawardene and Daniel Vettori as the other star players in the side, apart from former hard-hitting Australian Gilchrist, the Sagittarius Strikers are currently second in the table.

Libra Legends, who lost the season's opener against league leaders Gemini Arabians, are meanwhile rockbottom of the table. The MCL side, which also boasts of former Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly, lost their second match of the season against the Virgo Super Kings on Wednesday.

Both teams will compete with very different ambitions in mind. While Libra Legends will be looking to get out of the bottom of the table, Sagittarius Strikers will be looking to catch up with the Gemini Arabians at the top of the table.

Squads: Libra Legends: Jacques Kallis (C), Taufeeq Umar, Ian Butler, Graeme Swann, Ryan ten Doeschate, Michael Lumb, Brad Hogg, Shaun Tait, Sourav Ganguly, Ryan Sidebottom, Ajay Ratra, Marcus North, Nicky Boje, Chris Read, Sean Ervine.
