Preview

Cricket has successfully returned to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) with the D10 League starting on Friday. Like the first day, four matches are set to be played again with Team Abu Dhabi and Fujairah Pacific Ventures locking horns in match 7. Abu Dhabi will be playing its fourth match of the competition having faced the Sharjah Bukhatir XI earlier in the day.

On the other hand, the Pacific Ventures have only a solitary game on the day and they will be keen to get on the board after losing their opening game on Friday. Team Abu Dhabi too had a mixed opening day as they lost and won a match each on the first day of the tournament. Expect both the teams to give their best efforts in order to climb up the points table.

Expected Top Players

Rameez Shahzad (Team Abu Dhabi)

He scored two half-centuries in two matches on the opening day and has emerged as the top batsman for TAD. He opens the innings as well and has the maximum chance of scoring more runs. 

Dilawar Khan Orakzai (Team Abu Dhabi)

Orakzai bowled well in both the matches and picked four wickets. After returning with the figures of 3/12 in the first game, he was a bit expensive in the next outing. However, he is expected to be consistent in terms of picking wickets.

Asif Khan (Fujairah Pacific Ventures)

Asif batted at three and provided the much-needed impetus to the team’s innings smashing 30 runs off just 11 balls. He smacked 2 fours and 3 sixes as well. The side will be expecting more runs from him in this match.

Our Betting Tips

If we analyse both the teams, the bowling attack of both the sides seem a little weak. While Abu Dhabi conceded 98 and 164 in two matches, the Ventures went for 114 runs in only 7.5 in their opening game. It will all come down to which team bats well on the day. Looking at recent performances, expect Team Abu Dhabi to win the match.
