Match Preview

Table-toppers and one of the stronger sides in the ongoing edition of Qatar T10 League 2019, Desert Riders would lock horns with Falcon Hunters in what promises to be a swashbuckling encounter for the fans to witness. The Riders, riding high on the successes in the initial two matches, were unlucky to have suffered a rain-abandoned duel the previous day and thus, the Mohammad Hafeez-captained side would aim to capitalize from the very moment they are in the middle. 

On the other hand, Falcon Hunters who tasted their first defeat of the season against Swift Gallopers would look to bounce back in the forthcoming encounter. As of present, they are seated at the third spot in the points table and a victory in the coming game could rightly put them at the 2nd spot in the ongoing league stages.

Teams Preview

Falcon Hunters Preview

Hashim Amla and Salman Butt would be carrying the onus of scoring the bulk of runs for the Falcon Hunters if they are vying to outlast Mohammad Hafeez & Co. The former, in particular, could pose a major threat if well set in the middle. The likes of Kamran Khan and Babar Hayat couldn't do much in the previous game but would be anxious to get those runs on board.

Mohammad Rizlan was the leading run-getter for his side in the lately finished encounter and with 59 runs in 2 innings is presently among the top-performers for the Hunters in the concurrent T10 League.

In the bowling department, although it has been a combined effort till now with almost every player bagging a dismissal to his name, one would expect the likes of Iqbal Hussain and Waqas Mahmood to annoy the opposition with their pace prowess.

Falcon Hunters Predicted Playing XI:

Iqbal Hussain (c), Irshad Umer, Murad Khan, Kamran Khan, Mohammed Rizlan (wk), Iqbal Hussain (c), Tamoor Sajjad, Babar Hayat, Waqas Maqsood, Saad Bin Safar, Hashim Amla, Salman Butt

Desert Riders Preview

Skipper Mohammad Hafeez single-handedly won the game for Desert Riders with his 23-ball 45 versus Flying Oryx. The duo of Adnan Mirza and Mohammad Tanveer have had decent performances to their name and along with Hafeez would form the core of Riders' batting department.

In terms of bowling, they possess one of the best lineups amongst the competing teams in Qatar T10 League. Veteran left-arm pacer Sohail Tanvir would be spearheading the bowling attack along with fellow pacers Muhammad Ikram and Awais Malik who as well been decent with their bowling potency in the concluded duels.

Desert Riders Predicted Playing XI:

Mohammad Hafeez (c), Adnan Mirza, Mirza Baig, Imal Liyanage (wk), Himanshu Rathod, Muhammad Ikram, Mujeeb Khan, Awais Malik, Muhammad Tanveer, Ajay Lalcheta, Sohail Tanvir

Pitch And Weather Conditions

Weather Conditions

The high humidity levels would make it difficult for the pacers to affect dismissals in the second half of the play. Batters, once again, would enjoy dominance and would look to crack up the contest. 

Venue Details

The average first innings score in the matches competed so far this season has been around 95. With the rains not playing a spoilsport in this case, there's a strong hunch for a scoreline of over 100 runs in the first innings.

Toss: To Bowl

It would be ideal for the toss-winning captain to consider bowling first on this surface. Four out of seven matches played at this venue in the ongoing edition of Qatar T10 League have been won by the team batting second and with the present set of pitch and weather conditions, one could expect a similar outcome at West End stadium.

Winning Prediction

Desert Riders have shown top-notch exhibitions since the start of Qatar T10 League and would be coming into the contest as favorites over Falcon Hunters. Having won two out of three matches completed so far, the Mohammad Hafeez-led side seems to have found a winning formula in the T10 Leagues and thus, one shouldn't be surprised if they do manage to surface meritorious in the coming contest.

We are expecting Desert Riders to win!
