Aravind failed for the first time in the last game scoring only 11 runs against Sharjah Bukhatir XI. But he already has two half-centuries to his name in the tournament and is one of the top run-getters amassing 187 runs thus far. Expect him to make a stunning comeback.
Adnaan Khan has emerged as a decent opener after a poor start to the tournament. He has scored 109 runs in last three matches including an unbeaten 43 off 20 balls in the last game. He will be crucial to his team’s fortunes.
Fahad Nawaz has been exceptional when it comes to his all-round skills. He opens the innings and bowls two overs of his quota more often than not. He slammed an unbeaten 38 off 23 deliveries in the team’s 10-wicket win over Team Abu Dhabi last time around.
The winning momentum is clearly with the Dubai Pulse Secure but their bowling attack is relatively weak. The team has conceded a lot of runs in the six matches they’ve played so far. ECB Blues have a brilliant line-up filled with the superstars in the country and they will be keen to post another 150+ total if they bat first.
Our Prediction: ECB Blues are expected to win this match.
