Swift Gallopers would be beaming with confidence as they take on the Flying Oryx in the 2nd semi-final of Qatar T10 League 2019 whom they had defeated last night to bag the top spot in the points table.
Swift Gallopers lost their opening match of the season and since then haven't had a defeat in the matches competed. The Kamran Akmal-captained lineup has won four games in succession and based on their current form they could be backed to outwit the Flying Oryx in the must-win encounter.
On the other hand, Flying Oryx, led by Hussain Talat, haven't had a great run this season with merely a sole win in the league matches, two losses and a no result, still somehow managed to get into the knockout stages. Banking on the bowling prowess, the Oryx would hope to bowl first on this occasion, restrict the opposition to a low total and then chase the target courtesy the top and middle-order batters.
Openers Kamran Akmal (110 runs in 5 innings )and Zaheer Ibrahim (111 runs in 5 innings) have been the leading run-getters for Swift Gallopers in Qatar T10 2019 and would be heavily relied upon to put a decent start to their side in the much-anticipated duel. Ali Imran, who bats at No 3, has been in top form as well with 81 runs in 3 innings at an average of 40.50 and strike rate of 253.12 and would be hoping to get those big-runs on board.
In the middle-order, Ravinderpal Singh was in a great nick in the last game wherein he scored a match-winning 18-ball 34 and would be hoping to exhibit a similar exhibition in the 2nd semi-final.
Bowling wise, the trio of Ali Imran (1/16), Mughees Bajwa (2/10), and Zainudheen (2/12) rendered terrific performances in the previous match against Flying Oryx and with spinner, Mohammad Imran who scalped 3/16 in the last outing could form a concrete bowling attack versus the opposition.
Kamran Akmal (c and wk), Umar Gul, Mughees Bajwa, Jahanzeb Ashad, Zainudheen, Sufyan Mehmood, Sadiq NM, Mohammad Imran, Ravinderpal Singh, Ali Imran, Zaheer Ibrahim
Skipper Hussain Talat's all-round prowess will be put to test in the 2nd semi-final. Batting wise, the team hasn't clicked in spite of possessing aggressive talents like Assad Borham and Sami Islam opening the innings for the Oryx and its about time they perform to the expectations. Shahid Yousuf and Saad Nasim have been the few positives in the middle-order who have been contributing at regular intervals.
Among the bowlers, all eyes would on Sri Lankan spinner Chaturanga de Silva who bagged figures of 2-0-16-3 in the recent outing against Gallopers. Pacers Naveed Malik (1/25) and Bilawal Iqbal (2/14) garnered impressionable figures and could be vouched to put up decent exhibitions in the knockouts.

As per the reports, there will be heavy showers prior to the commencement of the game which could hamper the gameplay. In case the match continues, it would be advisable to face the ball in the second innings as the dampness of the wicket in the first half might make the batters bit uncomfortable.
The pitch has offered significant assistance to the batters with 105 being the average 1st innings total in the ongoing T10 matches.
The toss winning captain must consider bowling on this occasion. With the rains coming into play, it would be much easier for the bowlers in the first half as they would look to capitalize on the damp conditions, while the batters might get something to bat on in the second innings.
Swift Gallopers have the perfect lineup in terms of batting and bowling units and taking into account their present form, one could clearly vouch for them as the winners of the coming contest. Flying Oryx, in spite of having a top-notch bowling attack, lacks the strength in the batting department which could cost them the 2nd semi-final.
