dbs vs nws Match Prediction & Analysis

After 28 competitive games that saw intense competition on the cricket field often going down the wire, we are in the final of T10 League, 2021. Delhi Bulls who topped in the group stage would be taking on the Northern Warriors in the game. The Bulls come here with a win against the same opponents in the qualifier game. Northern Warriors snatched a win from the jaws of defeat against Team Abu Dhabi and this would add to their confidence.  

Northern Warriors bowling attack hasn’t been able to play complimentary role to their strong batting line-up. This was on display in the last game where they leaked lot of runs. This would however be a high pressure contest for both the sides and given the kind of form we have seen from the two teams. We expect this one to go down the wire.

Teams Preview

Delhi Bulls Preview

Dwayne Bravo’s side is enjoying a dream run at the moment. They have peaked at the right time and this was on full display in their last game against the Northern Warriors which they ended up winning by 5 wickets. However the skipper wouldn’t want to take his opponents lightly in this game given their batting strength.  

Openers Rahmanullah Gurbaz and Evin Lewis got starts in the last game and they would need to play a good knock in this game. Sherfane Rutherford was brilliant and he would be looking to do big hitting in the middle order along with Mohammad Nabi and Ravi Bopara. The presence of Bravo and Tom Abell adds good strength to their batting line-up. 

Waqas Maqsood and Fidel Edwards were expensive in the last game and the side would be expecting a good show from them here. Bravo led from the front with the ball and was backed by Shiraz Ahmed who also bowled a very good spell. With Nayeem Young and Nabi in the attack they are looking in good shape for now. 

Delhi Bulls Predicted Playing XI:

Dwayne Bravo (c), Rahmanullah Gurbaz (wk), Evin Lewis, Ravi Bopara, Sherfane Rutherford, Mohammad Nabi, Tom Abell, Shiraz Ahmed, Nyeem Young, Fidel Edwards, Waqas Maqsood

Northern Warriors Preview

Nicholas Pooran’s side made a strong statement in the last game of the tournament with their win against Team Abu Dhabi. Their middle order came to the party in the last final overs and played extremely well to win it by 7 wickets. They had won the 2018 edition of the tournament and Pooran would like lift the second title. 

Lendl Simmons and Waseem Muhammad will be looking to play a good innings in this game and they have scored runs in earlier games. The middle order is looking good with Pooran and Rovman Powell doing well in the last few games. With big hitters of the ball in Brandon King and Fabian Allen down the order their batting line-up packs punch.

Their bowlers were expensive in the last game and need to do well. Junaid Siddique and Wayne Parnell would be tasked with grabbing early wickets in the game. Rayad Emrit and Fabian Allen are good bowlers and they would have to make good use of their experience.

Northern Warriors Predicted Playing XI:

Nicholas Pooran (c & wk), Brandon King, Waseem Muhammad, Rovman Powell, Fabian Allen, Lendl Simmons, Wayne Parnell, Dhananjaya Lakshan, Rayad Emrit, Junaid Siddique, Maheesh Theekshana

Weather Conditions

It will be a warm evening at Abu Dhabi on February 06 with clear skies. In the last few games we have seen the pitch slow down a bit where the ball has stopped on the batsmen. This will be a high pressure contest and any score of 130 runs and above would be a tough one to chase here.

Venue Details

Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi has deep boundaries but the ground also has lightning fast outfield which batsmen enjoy. Fast bowlers don’t enjoy bowling on this surface as there is hardly any support for them from the surface. This has been a happy hunting ground for the spinners over the years.

Toss: To Bowl

This tournament has all been about teams winning the games chasing the scores. In the 27 games that have been played sides batting first have managed to win only 6 games so far. Having a target score in mind has worked in favor of batsmen. Thus we believe in this game the captain winning the toss would have little hesitation in bowling first.

DBS vs NWS Winning Prediction

There would be pressure on both the camps with this game being the final. Northern Warriors are struggling with their bowling attack at the moment and need to fix this problem before the title decider. The Delhi Bulls have won their last four games convincingly where their bowling attack has looked in good form and this would make them favorites to win this game and lift the trophy.

Delhi Bulls to win
