Undefeated Gulf Giants are  all set to play their fourth match of the season when they will take on inconsistent Sharjah Warriors on January 23 at Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai. The Giants have not lost a single match in the season and are currently placed second in the points table. 

Meanwhile, Sharjah Warriors finally registered their maiden victory in the last game and will be keen to continue the momentum when they will be up against Gulf Giants. Let's look at the 'who will win?' prediction for the upcoming fixture.

Pitch Report:

The surface at Dubai International Cricket Stadium has been providing a lot of assistance to the bowlers and we can expect yet another low-scoring match. Spinners are likely to make a crucial impact in the game.

Team Analysis:

Gulf Giants:

James Vince led the side from the front as he smashed a brilliant 76 off just 48 deliveries and got much-needed assistance from Shimron Hetmyer who scored quick 37 runs in 19 balls. Liam Dawson too came in handy with the bat as he contributed 18 runs towards the end. 

Bowlers were right on the money as Chris Jordan and David Wiese picked three wickets each. Richard Gleeson too bagged two wickets in the last game. Gulf Giants have the right players at their service and the side is looking formidable against Sharjah Warriors.

Probable playing XI:

James Vince (c), Rehan Ahmed, Chris Lynn, Gerhard Erasmus, Shimron Hetmyer, David Wiese, Ashwanth Chidambaram (wk), Liam Dawson, Chris Jordan, Sanchit Sharma, Richard Gleeson

Sharjah Warriors

Sharjah Warriors' maiden victory came after three games, and they will be hoping to continue that momentum. Tom Kohler-Cadmore played a spectacular knock of 106 runs in just 47 deliveries and will have significant attention from the opposition as well as the spectators in the next game. 

Joe Denly too made a valuable contribution with 29 off 17. Besides Chris Woakes and Naveen-ul-Haq, none-of-the bowlers were impressive for Sharjah Warriors in the last game. The duo picked two wickets each. However, Sharjah Warriors have a daunting task ahead of them as they will be up against Gulf Giants.

Probable playing XI:

Rahmanullah Gurbaz (wk), Tom Kohler-Cadmore, Dawid Malan, Moeen Ali (c), Joe Denly, Mohammad Nabi, Noor Ahmad, Chris Woakes, Muhammad Jawadullah, Junaid Siddique, Naveen-ul-Haq

Match prediction:

If Sharjah Warriors bat first, the expected score is around 145-155. Gulf Giants will win the match.

If Gulf Giants bats first, the expected score is 165-175. Gulf Giants will win the match.


Gulf Giants are on a winning streak and Sharjah Warriors have found their mojo back after losing the first three games. The upcoming fixture is likely to be a blockbuster, but we place our bet-on Gulf Giants. Looking at their recent form, we expect the Giants to clinch the game with a lot of ease.
