DBC vs MIE Match Prediction - Feb 05, 2023

The Dubai Capitals will be fighting to keep themselves in the race to the playoffs as they face the MI Emirates this weekend in the International League T20 being played in the UAE.

The MI Emirates have already qualified for the next stage but a win here might help them finish in second place, giving them an extra shot at making it to the finals. 


DBC vs MIE Team Previews

Dubai Capitals

The Capitals are currently 5th on the points table and they will need to win this one to keep their playoff hopes alive. A win here will help them overtake the Sharjah Warriors, but the latter still have 2 matches to play, making things pretty bleak for the Capitals.

The batting has been one of the weakest aspects for the Capitals this season as except for Rovman Powell, none of the batsmen have been able to score freely. The departure of Joe Root for international duties has further weakened their batting line-up.

Robin Uthappa and Sikandar Raza have got a couple of good starts but have failed to build upon them, while Dasun Shanaka and Yusuf Pathan’s performance has been disappointing, to say the least. Talking about the bowling, Adam Zampa was at his economical best in the last match but couldn’t prevent his team from facing defeat.

Akif Raja and Fred Klaassen have managed to pick up 15 wickets between them but have been very expensive. The team lacks quality as well as depth in their bowling and that could pose a challenge against a strong batting lineup like the MI Emirates.

MI Emirates

It has been a bit of a rollercoaster ride for the MI Emirates this season as they have lacked consistency in their performance. However, they have done enough to ensure promotion to the next stage. They are currently in the 3rd spot and a win here will give them a shot at finishing in the top-2.

The Emirates played their latest match against the Abu Dhabi Knight Riders and won the high-scoring encounter by 18 runs. Asked to bat first, the MI Emirates received a solid start thanks to a third half-century of the season by Muhammad Waseem.

He has scored a total of 303 runs at an average of 37.87 and has been one of the most reliable batsmen in the squad. Kieron Pollard was at his best lower down the order, scoring a brilliant 43 of just 17 deliveries to propel his team to 180-4. In the second innings, the bowlers were able to pick up wickets at regular intervals and derailed the chase by bowling out the opposition for 162 runs.

Dwayne Bravo picked up 3 wickets to take his total tally for the season to 11, while Imran Tahir and Zahoor Khan picked up 2 wickets each. Overall, the Emirates have a well-balanced side with some big hitters in the form of Nicholas Pooran, Pollard, and Andre Fletcher, and also have some world-class bowlers like Trent Boult, Fazalhaq Farooqi, and Imran Tahir.

Pitch and Conditions

The pitch at the Dubai International Stadium is good to bat on as the surface has an even and predictable bounce, allowing the batsmen to go through with their shots. The average first-innings score here is around 170. While the quicker bowlers are likely to struggle here, the seamers can expect some assistance from the pitch.

Since this is a D/N match, the dew will play an important role, making it a bit difficult to defend targets. The weather is expected to be clear with temperatures ranging from 20-22 degrees Celsius. 


DBC vs MIE Betting Tips

A look at the form of both the teams shows that the hosts will find it quite difficult to contain the MI Emirates on this flat pitch. The latter have a deep batting line-up and with the kind of form that the likes of Kieron Pollard are in, they can take the Capitals’ bowling to the cleaners. We think that the MI Emirates are well placed to take 2 points from this match.

Bet on the MI Emirates to win.

    Kieron Pollard Total Runs

    Over 16.5 (1.83)


Pollard has been in sublime form this season and is the leading run-getter for the MI Emirates. In the 8 innings that he has batted this season, he has never been dismissed for a score lower than 16. Given the fact that the Capitals lack quality bowling options, we expect Pollard to continue with his onslaught. That is why we are recommending an `Over´ bet for this one.
