EMI vs DUB Pre-Toss LineUps:
EMI vs DUB TEAM ANALYSIS:
After winning five games and losing four, MI Emirates posted 11 points in the group stage and finished in third place. Emirates lost both their group stage games against Dubai Capitals, by 16 runs in Match 13 and seven wickets on Sunday in Match 29.
UAE opener Muhammad Waseem has enjoyed a strong tournament and will be a key wicket in the MI Emirates line-up. He hit 86 in his last appearance at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium against Desert Vipers. Nicholas Pooran will be another dangerous player with the bat for MI Emirates.
The bowling attack for MI Emirates took only three wickets in their last game and the entire bowling unit will need to perform better in this game. Craig Overton impressed by conceding only 14 runs from their four overs on Sunday and also dismissed Robin Uthappa.
With Dubai Capitals winning only four of their 10 group stage matches, there are plenty of pundits who consider them to be the weakest of the four teams in the play-offs. However, they have a strong record over MI Emirates and have ended the first stage in good form.
Although he was dismissed for a two ball duck on Sunday, Rovman Powell is a destructive T20 batter and has hit 320 runs across the tournament. Dasun Shanaka, who had been out of form in previous innings, looked back to his best with 58 not out from 36 balls against MI Emirates.
Former England international Jake Ball led the bowling attack with figures of 3-37 in Sunday’s clash. He was helped by Australian spinner Adam Zampa who took another two wickets and has been in brilliant form for Dubai Capitals since joining up from the BBL.
Compared to the top two teams in the tournament, MI Emirates and Dubai Capitals were inconsistent in the group stage but the winner of this game will be one match away from reaching the final of the competition. We expect Adam Zampa to cause plenty of problems for MI Emirates but overall we think Dubai Capitals are the weaker side. Our prediction is for MI Emirates to win this Eliminator fixture.
