db vs dg Match Prediction & Analysis

Delhi Bulls who have looked one of the best sides in the season would be taking on Deccan Gladiators in the 15th game of the season. After two consecutive wins the Bulls suffered their first loss at the hands of the Northern Warriors in the last game. The Deccan Gladiators have looked slightly indifferent so far and lost their last game against the Qalandars. 

The Delhi Bulls have looked in great form with their top order firing and the bowling attack making it extremely tough for the opponents. The Gladiators have suffered from the lack of a game plan which has hurt them. Both the sides would have now got used to the pace of this format and we should see a good show from them here.

Teams Preview

Delhi Bulls Preview

It was first loss of the season for Dwayne Bravo’s side as they went down against the Northern Warriors by 32 runs. Bravo would be upset with the loss as his side has started the chase well. He would like to put this loss behind and focus on playing well in the next game. They are up against a strong team and Bravo would like his players to show positive intent. 

Openers Rahmanullah Gurbaz and Evin Lewis have done well and the side would want a good start from them here. Ravi Bopara is doing well at No. 3 but the side would want the likes of Adam Lyth and Sherfane Rutherford to contribute in this game. With Bravo and Mohammad Nabi down the order they have good strength in their batting. 

Waqas Maqsood was exceptional with the ball in the last game and so was Shiraz Ahmed and they would look to keep things tight in this game. The side would however need a better show from Mohammad Nabi, Fidel Edwards and Bravo as they bowled extremely poorly in the last game.

Delhi Bulls Predicted Playing XI:

Dwayne Bravo (c), Evin Lewis, Rahmanullah Gurbaz (wk), Adam Lyth, Ravi Bopara, Mohammad Nabi, Sherfane Rutherford, Shiraz Ahmed, Waqas Maqsood, Ali Khan, Fidel Edwards

Delhi Bulls Actual Playing XI:

Dwayne Bravo, Evin Lewis, Amad Butt, Ali Khan, Tom Abell, RS Bopara, Sherfane Rutherford, Shiraz Ahmed, Fidel Edwards, Mohammad Nabi, Rahmanullah Gurbaz

Deccan Gladiators Preview

Kieron Pollard’s side went down against the Qalandars by 33 runs in the last game. It was an extremely poor show from their batsmen who could only manage 85 runs chasing a small total in the game. Pollard would be aware of the challenge that Delhi Bulls pose and expect a better show from them here.  

Openers Mohammad Shahzad and Cameron Delport have done well so far and a good show would be expected from them. Pollard along with Azam Khan and Sharafuddin Ashraf will be expected to play their strokes in the middle order. The presence of Sunil Narine and Anwar Ali offers good firepower for the side.  

Ravi Rampaul bowled well in the last game and he will look forward to offering a good start along with Narine. Anwar Ali and Zahoor Khan were expensive in the last game and the side would need a better show from them against the Bulls who have a strong line-up. With Imran Tahir and Pollard bringing in lot of experience batting looks good for now.

Deccan Gladiators Predicted Playing XI:

Kieron Pollard (c), Mohammad Shahzad (wk), Cameron Delport, Azam Khan, Sharafuddin Ashraf, Sunil Narine, Anwar Ali, Imtiaz Ahmed, Ravi Rampaul, Imran Tahir, Zahoor Khan

Deccan Gladiators Actual Playing XI:

Kieron Pollard, Anwar Ali, Ravi Rampaul, Imran Tahir, Sunil Narine, Zahoor Khan, Cameron Delport, Azam Khan, M Shahzad, Imtiaz Ahmed, Sharafuddin Ashraf

Weather Conditions

It will be great weather conditions at Abu Dhabi on February 1 as the skies would be absolutely clear. The track has been slower than its normal character requiring the batsmen to watch the ball closely. The side that bats first in this game would need to go beyond the 130 runs mark to feel safe here.

Venue Details

Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi has large boundaries but a very quick outfield and this allows the batsmen to play their strokes and score runs. The conditions are tough on the fast bowlers as there is hardly anything for them in their but spinners have always troubled the batsmen here.

Toss: To Bowl

In the 12 games so far sides chasing the score have gone on to win 9 games. It is a great track to chase totals as teams do well when they have a target score in mind. Given the kind of results we have seen so far the side winning the toss is most likely to opt for bowling in this game.

DB vs DG Winning Prediction

There isn’t much to choose between the two sides at the moment. The Deccan Gladiators have their most experienced bowlers in poor form at the moment and this would be worrying the side. The Bulls on the other hand have looked in great form and have a side that bat deep and this would offer them slight advantage in this contest.
