dr vs sg Match Prediction & Analysis

Although playing their debut match of the tournament, Swift Gallopers could be touted as one of the top contenders for the T10 title. With skipper Luke Wright in excellent form in the concluded Abu Dhabi T10 League and an experienced Kamran Akmal in the armory, one shouldn’t be surprised if their side manages to script a victory in their first match of the season.

Competing against them is Pakistani pacer Sohail Tanvir-led Desert Riders who would be banking on their bowling potency in getting the tide in their favor. It would be interesting to see how both sides face off each other in the much-coveted encounter at Doha.

Teams Preview

Desert Riders Preview

The hosts may not possess big names in their tent, however, one must not make the grave mistake of undermining their potential. Sohail Tanvir, the left-arm Pakistani pacer with 340 T20 scalpings in 321 outings, would be one of the vital cogs for the hosts in the coming duel.

Not to forget, the swing specialist looked in a great nick in the domestic T20 cup matches held in October this year wherein he bagged 14 wickets in 7 outings to his name. Shahadat Hossain, who is currently out of contention for representing Bangladesh in the international format can pose a threat to the opposition with his pace prowess.

Omani all-rounder Mohammad Nadeem proved his mettle in the Associate cricket with figures of 4/23 in the T20 World Cup qualifier match versus Jersey and would look to put up a similar show in the T10 tournament.

Desert Riders Predicted Playing XI:

Sohail Tanvir (c), Adnan Mirza (wk), Shahadat Hossain, Awais Malik, Javed Ahmadi, Muhammad Tanveer, Chundangaopoyil Rizwan, Kithuruwan Vithanage, Amjad Khan, Khurram Manzoor, Ramith Rambukwella

Desert Riders Actual Playing XI:

Muhammad Tanveer, Mujeeb Khan, S Tanvir, Muhammad Ikram, Himanshu Rathod, Imal Liyanange, Adnan Mirza, Sibtul Hasnain Baig Mirza, Mohammad Hafeez, Awais Malik, Ajay Lalcheta

Swift Gallopers Preview

Kamran Akmal and Luke Wright would be carrying the onus of scoring the bulk of runs for the Gallopers in the upcoming contest. The former holds enormous T20 expertise underneath, both in terms of batting as well as wicket-keeping, and when on a song he could single-handedly tear through the opposition without breaking a sweat.

Englishman Luke Wright had a stupendous run with the bat in the Abu Dhabi T10 League as he aggregated 208 runs in 6 outings, comprising a 30-ball 57 in the finals of the tournament.

Along with the duo, one could bank on Shafiqullah, as the Afghani wicket-keeper had a decent stint behind the stumps in Abu Dhabi T10 league and at the situation’s behest, could strike the ball past the boundary lengths as is visible from his strike rate of 143.66 in the T20 format.

Swift Gallopers Predicted Playing XI:

Luke Wright (c), Ansh Tandon, Danza Hayat, Inam-ul-Haq, Zaheer Ibrahim, Richmond Mutumbami, Ravinderpal Singh, Shafiqullah (wk), Imran Nazir, Kamran Akmal

Swift Gallopers Actual Playing XI:

Sufyan Mehmood, Sadiq NM, Ravinderpal Singh, Zain Uddin, Inam-ul-Haq, Jahanzeb Naveed, Syed Tameem, Zaheer Ibrahim, Mughees Bajwa, Kamran Akmal, Gayan Wimalshantha

Pitch And Weather Conditions

Weather Conditions

It is going to be mostly clear weather at Doha with the temperature hovering between 22-23 degrees Celsius. Humidity levels will increase as the game progresses, offering a bit of help for the batters in the second half of play.

Venue Details

The pitch at Doha will be favoring the batsmen throughout the coming encounter. The clear skies and flat tracks will surly render great advantage to the batters of both the units. One thing that must be noted is the length of boundaries which might require some effort from the batters to steer through them.

Toss: To Bowl

The toss winning captain is likely to bowl first amidst the present set of conditions prevalent at Doha. Moreover, the T10 formats have largely witnessed the teams batting second gaining a considerable advantage, something that mustn’t be forgotten in the forthcoming contest.

DR vs SG Winning Prediction

Swift Gallopers possess a comparatively experienced batting lineup compared to Desert Riders which could get them an upper hand over the Desert Riders in the forthcoming feud. The likes of Kamran Akmal and Luke Wright have played a plethora of T20 contests that could come of assistance to the Swift Gallopers in the T10 encounter.
