The court was hearing a lawsuit brought by a man who claimed that the tournament was his concept and that he had discussed it with the respondent, who then went on to organise the league with other defendants.

On January 20th, 2022, in the case of Samir Kasal v. Prashant Mehta and Ors, the Hon’ble Delhi High Court, refused to stop the holding of the next Legends League Cricket event, stated that no one can claim copyright on the game of cricket, nor on its evolution from five-day test matches to the more modern style of T-20 cricket.

In the light of discussions, the league organisers are directed to maintain a clear account of their earnings and expenditure in respect of the matches that are being organised in Oman (UAE) and file the same in court within one month of the completion of the league matches.

The court will issue summons to the defendants in all permissible ways, which must be returned to the registrar, and written statements must be filed within thirty days of the date set for the completion of the pleadings, which is April 26th, 2022.

As per the schedule, the Legends League Cricket tournament will begin on Thursday, with three teams participating: the Indian Maharajas, Asian Lions, and World Giants. Yuvraj Singh, Virender Sehwag, Shahid Afridi, Shoaib Akhtar, Kevin Peterson, Jacque Kallis, and others are among the retired cricketers expected to participate in the matches, which will be hosted at the Al-Amerat Cricket Ground in Oman.
