Yet to win Abu Dhabi Knight Riders will get another opportunity to register their maiden win in the inaugural edition as they are set to host Dubai Capitals on Monday (January 30), at Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi. Both the teams are reeling at the bottom of the points table and would be hoping to win this game at any cost.
The surface at Sheikh Zayed International Stadium provides a lot of assistance to bowlers. Spinners might do the talking on Sunday evening. 145 is the average 1st inning score at the venue.
Skipper Rovman Powell and Joe Root played spectacular innings for Dubai Capitals as the duo guided their side to 222 runs against MI Emirates. Both the players will provide a lot of edge to Capitals when they will be up against struggling Knight Riders. Meanwhile, Dhananjaya de Silva played a crucial knock of 65 runs in their last face-off but a lack of support from other players led to team's loss. Knight Riders require a collective effort from their players as they seek their maiden win in the edition.
Dubai Capitals are clear favorites against Abu Dhabi Knight Riders and are likely to register their third win of the tournament.
