MIE vs DBC Team Previews

MI Emirates

MI Emirates has played against the Dubai Capitals twice this season and lost both of them. It has also played two matches in Sharjah and won both of them! There is no doubt that the team depends very heavily on Kieron Pollard who has been in terrific form. 

He has 337 runs at an average of 67.40 and a strike rate of 198.23. These are astonishing figures and when you factor in 25 sixes hit by him in IL T20 2023, the impact he has had becomes clear. Nicholas Pooran, Muhammad Waseem, and Andre Fletcher are the other leading players in this lineup. 

The six-hitting potential of this lineup could be crucial at a venue like Sharjah where the boundaries are quite small. 

Trent Boult, Fazalhaq Farooqi, Imran Tahir, and Dwayne Bravo are terrific T20 bowlers with an incredible amount of experience between them. We expect to see all of them in action for this match. We think this bowling unit is going to be hard to stop.

Dubai Capitals

The Dubai Capitals are not as strong in the batting department as MI Emirates. Rovman Powell is the only player that has really been able to make a lasting impact. He has 320 runs to his name but no other batter comes even within 100 runs of his total. 

Sikandar Raza and Dasun Shanaka are going to be the other players extremely crucial for the batting display that the Dubai Capitals put up with support from Robin Uthappa, George Munsey, and Yusuf Pathan. Poor squad selection has left the Dubai Capitals in a tough spot and they are always going to be vulnerable with the bat.

Adam Zampa is the outstanding performer with the ball. He has the most wickets for the Capitals even though he has played just four matches. Once again, his supporting cast is a bit thin and could struggle against the MI Emirates.

Pitch and Conditions

There is no rain forecast in Sharjah but it is expected to be a bit cloudy. The humidity could also result in some dew during the match. 

The pitch at Sharjah is a bit slow and helpful for the spinners. The small boundaries attract the batters but the pitch somewhat balances out the equation. We think a score of around 170 should be seen as par. 

MIE vs DBC Betting Tips

We are going to stick with the favorites in this match. The MI EMirates have a stronger batting lineup with more players contributing and their bowling is also much stronger. The Dubai Capitals are going to have to hope for something miraculous to be able to come out of this one. 

Bet on MI Emirates to win.
