The weather as always in the middle-east is well in favor of the sport. The temperature is expected to be hovering in the 21-18 degree Celsius and the humidity is likely to touch the 67 percent mark.
The strip in Sheikh Zayed Stadium as we saw in the recently concluded Indian Premier League and ODI series has a lot of assistance for the slow bowlers. Said that the batsmen who play the waiting game are well rewarded. With the boundaries shorten for the t10 aspect the matches are expected to be high-scoring thrillers.
Delhi Bulls do boost a strong line-up and their skipper Dwayne Bravo is definitely the standout. The 37-year old’s experience could come in very handy for the team. In addition, they do have some world-class players in form of Mohammad Nabi, Ravi Bopara, Dushmantha Chameera, Evin Lewis and latest young sensation Rahmanullah Gurbaz. UAE all-rounder Kashif Daud is also likely to make the cut.
Bangla Tigers on the other hand have decided to have Afif Hossain as their Icon player. They too possess a strong line-up with the likes of Andre Fletcher, Isuru Udana, Qais Ahmed, David Wiese, Johnson Charles, and the young sensations Mujeeb Ur Rahman and Mahedi Hasan. The local star Chirag Suri is expected to open the batting along with the West Indian Andre Fletcher.
