DV vs SW Match Prediction - Jan 15, 2023

The Desert Vipers are an important cricketing franchise in many ways because it marks the entry of the Glazer family into the world of T20 cricket leagues. This is going to be their first match of the International League T20 2023 season. They will be playing against the Sharjah Warriors, a team that suffered a pretty heavy loss against MI Emirates in their previous match. 

The cricket betting sites have the Desert Vipers as slight favorites going into the next match. 

DV vs SW Team Previews

Desert Vipers

The Desert Vipers have recruited quite well and their squad is reasonably strong. Alex Hales, Colin Munro, and Adam Lyth will start as the core of the batting group with Sam Billings, Dinesh Chandimal, Sherfane Rutherford, and Rohan Mustafa in the middle. 

This is an excellent batting lineup with a lot of power and experience. Someone like Alex Hales is a proven match winner but do not count out the six-hitting ability of Sherfane Rutherford down the line. 

The Desert Vipers also have Ruben Trumplemann and Mark Watts from the associate nations in their squad. Both of these players are capable of finding a place in their bowling lineup on their merit. Tom Curran, Sheldon Cottrell, and Wanindu Hasaranga could be the other bowlers that play in the opening match. 

A superb squad with a lot of variety should help the Desert Vipers put out a formidable playing eleven.

Sharjah Warriors

The Sharjah Warriors were poor with the ball in their opening match. Chris Woakes was the only bowler that managed to make any sort of impact and the rest ended up being too expensive. Mohammad Nabi gave away 50 runs in his four overs and Junaid Siddique also went for 42. 

There needs to be more responsibility taken by players like Moeen Ali (who bowled just one over for 18 in the previous match) as the majority of the bowling lineup looks a bit undercooked at this level. 

The Sharjah Warriors do have a solid batting lineup on paper. Evin Lewis, Moeen Ali, Rahmanullah Gurbaz, and Dawid Malan were all a part of the playing eleven in the previous match. These are some terrific batters that did not have a good game but that does not make them bad players in itself. 

The Warriors have the batting lineup to post big runs in the IPL T20 2023.

DV vs SW Toss Prediction

The team that wins the toss is likely to want to field first. That has traditionally been a big advantage in UAE although the two matches played so far have been won by the team that has batted first.

Pitch and Conditions

There is hardly any threat of rain in the desert and so we can expect another uninterrupted match. The weather should be mild and the dew also seems to be absent so far. The pitch in Dubai is flat and firmly in favor of the batters. The only thing that you need to worry about is a bit of low bounce but once you get adjusted to that, the batters can play quite freely. 

DV vs SW Betting Tips

We think the Desert Vipers have a good chance of starting with a win. They have a strong batting lineup and their bowling is also quite decent. The Sharjah Warriors have a superb batting lineup but we think their bowling might let them down a bit. 

Bet on the Desert Vipers to win.
