Match Preview

Karnataka Tuskers are officially out of the tournament and this game is nothing less than a dead rubber for them. However, Abu Dhabi has its fate in its own hands. Their main objective will be to win the game against the Tuskers by a decent margin, which should be enough to sneak into the 4th place. This match though can prove to be a dead rubber to Abu Dhabi as well if Qalandars win against the Delhi Bulls (Match 22).

For the Tuskers, they will look to avoid the wooden spoon and the major advantage for them will be that they're going to start the game as the underdogs for one final time. This promises to be an exciting clash and even more so if Delhi Bulls win against the Qalandars. An important game for both teams - with Tuskers looking to garner some pride, and Abu Dhabi holding on with a straw.

Teams Preview

Karnataka Tuskers Preview

Karnataka Tuskers have had a forgettable campaign, to say the least. Their main objective heading into this game will be to play with freedom if they are to salvage some of their pride. They will look to avoid the wooden spoon.

Their biggest strength heading into the game is that they can prove to be spoilsports for Abu Dhabi and they start as the underdogs. Karnataka Tuskers have been a side that hasn't made too many changes in this tournament and hence one can expect them to enter into their last game with the same XI. However, they might test their bench. Their biggest issue has been finding a right and stable combination. Marlon Samuels is still sitting on the bench and he might just make the cut, considering this is the last game for the Tuskers.

Karnataka Tuskers Predicted Playing XI:

Charles, Hashim Amla (C), Ross Whiteley/Marlon Samuels, Upul Tharanga, Shafiqullah (WK), Ahmed Raza, Ryan ten Doeschate, Shapoor Khan, Lamichhane, Patrick Brown, Rimmington.

Team Abudhabi Preview

Abu Dhabi is likely to go with the same combination. However, if Delhi Bulls lose the game against Qalandars, they will be tempted to make an odd change or two as even a win then cannot take them to the playoffs.

Abu Dhabi have batted well throughout the tournament but their bowling has been a major let-down for them. They will look to make a few tweaks to their bowling department if they do decide to make a change or two. Moeen Ali has looked good with the ball and there is no reason as to why he shouldn't complete his two overs. On the other hand, Harry Gurney has looked completely out of touch and has been quite expensive in the matches that he has featured in. One can expect Paras Khadka to make his way in for Harry Gurney as Moeen Ali can be trusted with the ball. Another option for them is swapping Harry Gurney with Corey Anderson who can bowl as well as play a finishing knock.

Team Abudhabi Predicted Playing XI:

Avishka Fernando, Luke Wright, Mo Ali (C), W Madsen, L Gregory, Alex Davis, Mustafa, Harry Gurney/Corey Anderson/Paras Khadka, Laughlin, Walsh, de Lange

Pitch And Weather Conditions

Weather Conditions

The track has considerably slowed down, especially after rain lashed Abu Dhabi on Wednesday. The spinners are getting into the game, and the same could be expected on Friday as well. The weather is expected to remain pleasant throughout the game with a slight cloud cover. One should expect a complete game.

Venue Details

The pitch has favored the batsmen and there shouldn't be any doubt about batting first. The slower bowlers and especially the spinners have found the pitch to their liking. Expect the pitch to remain the same for the upcoming clashes as well.

Toss: To Bat

The Abu Zayed Stadium has provided us with high scoring games this season and the same trend is expected to continue. The trend of chasing first however, seems to have changed. Yesterday's victories came while defending and teams might opt to put runs on the board.

Winning Prediction

While almost nothing separates these two teams, based on current form, Abu Dhabi have a slight upper hand, but with the underdogs tag on the Tuskers, expect to go down with a fight.

Team Abu Dhabi to win!
