SW vs DV Match Prediction - Jan 31, 2023

The Desert Vipers come into this match on the back of a 157-run loss but are still the favorites to win at most cricket betting sites! That is because they have won five out of the seven matches they have played so far and have been one of the best teams of IL T20 2023. 

Up next are the Sharjah Warriors who have won three out of the seven matches they have played. They have also been quite inconsistent and will be missing some of their key players for this match. 

SW vs DV Team Previews

Sharjah Warriors

Sharjah Warriors do not have Moeen Ali available for selection because of international commitments. Marcus SToinis has taken his place in the middle-order, though, and he is just as good a player. Rahmanullah Gurbaz and Tom Kohler-Cadmore will be the leading batters for the Warriors with support from Joe Denly and Marcus Stoinis. 

Naveen-ul-Haq and Junai Siddique lead the bowling effort with Mohammad Nabi and Noor Ahmad rounding out the attack. 

This is a decent T20 team with some players that ought to be a perfect fit for the conditions in the UAE but the performances of the Sharjah Warriors have not reflected that.

Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Tom Kohler Cadmore, Joe Denly, Marcus Stoinis, Adam Hose, Paul Walter, Mohammad Nabi, Noor Ahmad, Naveen ul Haq, Muhammad Jawad Ullah, Junaid Siddique.

Desert Vipers

The Desert Vipers were set a target of 242 in their previous match and they fell short by 157 runs. That is an incredible loss in T20 cricket and would have jolted the Vipers for sure. Still, if you take their other performances into consideration then they still come out favorably. 

Alex Hales has been the best batter of IL T20 2023 and is well supported by Sam Billings, Colin Munro, and Sherfane Rutherford. Benny Howell and Tom Curran are bowling all-rounders but pretty useful with the bat as well. 

It is in the bowling department that we think the Desert Vipers take a slight lead over the Sharjah Warriors. Matheesh Pathirana has been impressive, Mark Watt is reliable, and Luke Wood is an excellent bowler to have in the team as well. 

The presence of multiple world-class bowling options should give the edge to the Desert Vipers.

Pitch and Conditions

While there is no rain predicted, there may be some dew later on during the match. That will make the conditions a bit tough for the team that has to defend a target. Scores of around 170 have been par so far and that is something that teams will aim for once more. 

SW vs DV Betting Tips

We are going to back the Desert Vipers to win this match. One poor performance does not make them a bad team. They should be able to bounce back and win this match. They have a strong batting lineup with the most in-form batter of IL T20 2023 leading the way and a bowling attack that is superior to the Sharjah Warriors. 

Bet on the Desert Vipers to win.
