DBC vs ADKR Match Prediction - Jan 13, 2023

There is an unprecedented amount of T20 cricket being played around the world right now and the latest T20 league to fight for your attention, International League T20, is about to get underway. The first match will be played between the Dubai Capitals and the Abu Dhabhi Knight Riders, both teams owned by IPL franchise owners and pretty stacked with quality international talent. 

Let us take a closer look at both teams and see which one is likely to start the inaugural IL T20 2023 match with a win. 

DBC vs ADKR Team Previews

Dubai Capitals

Rovman Powell will lead the Dubai Capitals side and also be one of their main batters. He has Joe Root, Hazratullah Zazai, and Dan Lawrence for support in the team. Chriag Suri is also expected to play as one of two local players mandated to feature in the playing eleven. 

Niroshan Dickwella should take up the gloves while Bhanuka Rajapaska is away on international duty. Fabian Allen, Ravi Bopara, Isuru Udana, and Ravi Bopara are the all-rounders that are currently available in the squad. We think they give the Dubai Capitals a lot of flexibility and depth to work with. 

Robin Uthappa and Yusuf Pathan are both in the squad. We think they might end up playing to attract some Indian viewers but how useful they will be at this stage in their careers is debatable. 

Mujeeb ur Rahman and Fred Klaassen are the out and out bowlers in the lineup.

Abu Dhabi Knight Riders

A strong West Indian flavor runs through the Abu Dhabi Knight Riders. They have Andre Russell, Kennar Lewis, Sunil Narine, Akeal Hosein, Raymon Reifer, and Ravi Rampaul in their squad. We don't think all of them will end up playing but Russell, Narine, and Hosein are sure to feature.

There is no doubt about just how good Narine can be in this format of the game. He will bowl his four overs economically and may end up scoring some valuable runs as well. Russell and Hosein were in terrific form during the BBL and will come into the IL T20 full of confidence. 

Paul Stirling, Colin Ingram, and the rest of the all-rounders form a pretty formidable batting lineup. 

Brandon Glover and Ali Khan give two good options to use from the associate nationals as mandated by the rules of the tournament. We think the Abu Dhabi Knight Riders go into this match the deserving favorites.

DBC vs ADKR Toss Prediction

The team that wins the toss is likely to want to field first. Dubai does have a very strong chasing bias towards the chasing team with almost 60% of all T20 matches played being won by the chasing side.

Pitch and Conditions

There is no rain predicted in Dubai on match day. The weather will be quite pleasant and become cooler as the night falls. The pitch is going to be absolutely flat and good for batting. The dew plays a part in the second half of the matches and ends up making chasing a lot easier. When teams are closely matched, these things become quite important and so take that into account while placing your bets. 

DBC vs ADKR Betting Tips

We think the Abu Dhabi Knight Riders are the superior team on paper. They have more power and some seasoned T20 professionals that are experienced enough to adapt to all conditions. The Abu Dhabi Knight Riders should be able to start the IL T20 2023 with a win.

Bet on the Abu Dhabi Knight Riders to win.
