Legends League Cricket: Ryder, Kaif show help Manipal Tigers roar against India Capitals
Cuttack [India], September 29 (ANI): Jesse Ryder and Mohammad Kaif played like they never went away from competitive cricket as they shared a 126-run partnership to help Harbhajan Singh's Manipal Tigers post 161/5 against the Gautam Gambhir-led India Capitals in the 10th game of the SKY247.net
While the left-handed Ryder made 76 off 56 balls with five fours and an equal number of sixes, Kaif's contribution of 67 off 48 balls was no less important. Kaif hit nine boundaries and a six.
It was Gambhir who won the toss and elected to bowl first. Ryder opened the Tigers' innings along with Tatenda Taibu. The New Zealander looked comfortable during his stay at the crease, but the same could not be said about the former Zimbabwe captain.
Former Australia speedster Mitchell Johnson ended Taibu's stay at the crease in the first ball of the fifth over. That was when Kaif joined Ryder in the middle.
