Match Preview

A raging Desert Riders would be locking horns with Pearl Gladiators in what appears as a ripper of a battle for the fans to witness. The tourists have been on fire in the inaugural edition of Qatar T10 League with victories of their initial two matches and would look to stay supreme in the coming game as well. As of present, the Mohammad Hafeez-led side is seated at the top of the points table with 4 points and an NRR of +1.668 and based on their current form, one could foresee them as the stronger side in the competition.

On the other hand, Pearl Gladiators who lost out their opening bout will look to better their performance in the upcoming encounter. The Sohaib Maqsood-captained lineup would be heavily reliant on the trio of Faisal Javed, Adnan Ilyas, and Mohammad Nadeem for getting their team past the victory margins.

Teams Preview

Pearl Gladiators Preview

In spite of a loss in their opening game, no changes are expected of the Pearl Gladiators side with much expected of their batting unit in this game. Faisal Javed did score some runs at the top of the order but couldn’t get them quickly.

The other players such as Sohaib Maqsood and Mehran Khan will need to come up with the big hits to propel them to a match-winning total on Tuesday. Along with Mohammad Nadeem who bagged figures of 1/11 in the outing against Flying Oryx, Philip Joseph, and Khurram Shehzad would be shouldering the responsibility of getting the early dismissals in the much-coveted game against Desert Riders.

Pearl Gladiators Predicted Playing XI:

Sohaib Maqsood (c), Uzair Amir, Sheikh Raheel (wk), Philip Joseph, Nafees Shahzad, Khurram Shahzad, Mohammed Nadeem, Faisal Javed, Saqlain Arshad, Adnan Ilyas, Mehran Khan.

Desert Riders Preview

The Desert Riders should field an unchanged side for this game as well after a good outing against the Flying Oryx. Mohammad Hafeez and Adnan Mirza have forged a formidable partnership at the top of the order with Tanveer and Malindu providing the impetus in the middle overs.

Their bowling unit has also impressed in spite of Sohail Tanvir looking a bit off-color. The onus will be on Awais Malik and Ajay Lalcheta to contain the Pearl Gladiators in the middle overs if they are to win this game.

Desert Riders Predicted Playing XI:

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

Pitch And Weather Conditions

Weather Conditions

Showers are being anticipated prior to the contest making the wicket damp for the batters in the first half of the duel. Batting second would seem like a feasible option with the bowlers finding it hard to get hold of the ball in the latter stages of the game. 

Venue Details

Although a high-scoring venue, the wicket at Doha hasn't produced the best set of results with 95 being the average first innings total in the concurrent T10 season.  With the present set of conditions prevalent at Doha stadium, any scoreline close to 100 could be a par total.

Toss: To Bowl

The toss winning captain is likely to bowl first in the coming encounter. Three out of four matches held in the ongoing edition of Qatar T10 League have been won by the team batting second and looking at the present set of hitters of both the teams, chasing might seem like an obvious option. 

Winning Prediction

Coming into the contest, Desert Riders would be the clear cut favorites considering their players' form in Qatar T10 League 2019.

The troika of Mohammad Hafeez, Muhammad Ikram, and Adnan Mirza rendered match-winning exhibitions in the recent outing and would look to emulate their performances in the forthcoming duel. Hafeez's experience, in particular, could be the game-changer for the tourists as they battle it out with Pearl Gladiators in the coming encounter.

We are expecting Desert Riders to win!
